Easy Rye Flour Bread Recipe
- 3 cups (750 ml) lukewarm water
- 2 packages active dry yeast
- 4 tablespoons honey
- whole wheat flour
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2½ cups rye flour
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
Pour the water into a dip bowl. Stir in the yeast until well blended.
Add clear honey and 3 cups of whole wheat flour. Beat 2½ minutes with an electric beater. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
Add vegetable oil, salt, rye flour and caraway seeds. Mix well. Add enough whole wheat flour (3-4 cups) so that the dough no longer sticks to the side of the bowl.
Turn the dough out on a floured working surface. Knead for 10 minutes.
Wash out the mixing bowl and dry thoroughly. Grease inside of the bowl with vegetable oil. Put in the dough and turn it around so that all the surfaces of the dough are coated. Cover with paper towel and let rise at room temperature for 1 hour.
Grease 3 loaf tins with vegetable oil. Punch down the dough and divide it into 3 parts. Knead each part, slightly shaping it into a loaf. Fill the tins. Cover with paper towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C). Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes.
Turn off the oven. Turn out the loaves immediately onto wire rack to cool. Serve rye bread warm.
