Rye Bread for the Bread Maker literally takes 5 minutes to put together and is so much tastier than store bought!
Do you own a bread machine? I love mine! It is close to 30 years old and was a Christmas from my sister. Sadly, I lost her in 2016 and miss her terribly, but every time I make bread, I think of her!
Making bread without a bread machine isn’t difficult, but using a bread machine frees up your time to do other things.
The last 2 times I made this bread in the bread machine, it really bogged it down. The dough is very dense. This last time, I had to finish kneading it by hand a few times. I know it never had problems before, so I guess my machine is just getting old!
Just add all of the ingredients to your machine and run it on the dough cycle. I always just run the dough cycle for bread because I don’t like a square bread with a hole in one end from the paddle. It’s just a personal preference, but I like mine in a bread pan. More crispy crust to be had!!
Enjoy! And have fun cooking!
Let you bread machine do all the work!
- 2 Tbs . Vegetable Oil
- 1 1/3 c . warm water
- 1 Egg
- 1 1/2 tsp . salt
- 2 tsp . sugar
- 1 1/2 c . rye flour
- 3 c . white bread flour
- 1/4 c . gluten
- 1 Tbs . caraway seed
- 2 tsp . active dry yeast
Place all ingredients in Bread Machine in the order given. Water should be between 105°F and 110°F so I usually make sure the water is at least 115°F because it will cool down when you are putting the rest of the ingredients together.
I never cook the bread in the bread maker because I hate the shape of loaf and the paddle hole ruins the appearance so I place the bread maker on the ‘dough only’ setting.
When the dough is finished, remove it to a bowl, coated with oil and roll dough around. Cut the dough in half and shape into loaves.
With the seam side down, place each half in an oiled 5″x 9″ loaf pan. cover with a dry kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until loaves have risen to the top of the bread pans.
Once bread has risen place in the center of a preheated 350°F oven. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until golden brown and internal temperature is approximately 190°F.
