Thank you VeeV for letting me know that the original link to the recipe is now off Allrecipes.com. I will write it out for all of you because I just can’t keep this recipe to myself, it is so good!
You will need rye flour which is not always easy to find. I could only get a 5 lb bag that cost me $7! Yet when I was looking at the Caraway Rye Bread in the baking section of the grocery store, one old dry loaf was going for $4. This one recipe gives me two loaves of bread and it is super moist, unlike any Caraway Rye Bread I have ever eaten before.
Caraway Rye Bread
2 tsp of yeast
2 cups warm water
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp caraway seeds
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cup rye flour
1 1/2 – 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, depending on how wet or dry the dough is.
I put the ingredients in the machine in typical breadmaker order: wet ingredients, sugar, salt, flour, herbs/spices and then the yeast. The yeast always goes in last. Put the breadmaker on dough cycle.
Place in a greased bowl, turning to coat the dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, around 1 hour. Punch down, divide in half. Shape each half into a ball.
Place in 2 greased 8″ round cake pans. Flatten balls into 6″ diameter. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375F for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
I do not think I can ever go back to the dry, crumbly Caraway Rye Bread I used to get at the bakery after eating this heavenly bread. Now that I have the rye flour I have all the ingredients in my pantry to make this at any time for zero cost.
Homemade food is the best!
