My mother is always on the lookout for a good sour rye loaf. She said this was pretty close to her ideal. High praise, since I doubt she'll ever really be satisfied!

I made this recipe in my bread machine. It turned out very well--nice texture and a light rye bread taste. I agree with Phyllis's mother; it's just about ideal. Read More

Nice twist on a rye loaf. I used buttermilk instead of buttermilk powder so I used the amount of liquid called for (water) by subbing buttermilk instead. I just left out the powdered buttermilk. This makes a loaf that is clearly rye but with a bit of an extra zip. I rarely bake fully in the bread machine so I did the dough cycle and then baked in the oven at 375 for 40 mins. Turned out perfectly. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This is my favorite rye bread recipe to date. I made only one change which was to use First Clear Flour instead of bread flour. First Clear Flour (available from Baker's Catalogue a gread resource for serious bread makers) is described as "the flour NYC bakers have always used for the signature Jewish-style rye breads...in combination with rye flour." Maybe this change will bring this recipe up to your mother's ideal -- who knows?! Read More

Very nice bread! I love the wholesome taste of the rye combined with the tang of buttermilk. I added a tiny bit of wheat to mine too and about 1/4 cup of plain yogurt that I needed to get rid of. Thanks for the post! Read More

I baked this in a covered clay baker for 40 min. at 400 degrees. Used the dough cycle let rise in the baker then covered it and baked in the oven. Nice light rye flavor and very light in texture. I love it!!! I don't usually bake white bread and like wheat or rye. Read More

Best rye bread to come out of the breadmaker yet! I used 1 1/3 cups of buttermilk since I had some to use up instead of the powdered but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It smelled terrific while baking. The caraway seed really punched up what I think of as rye flavor. I will try adding that to my other rye bread recipe and see if it helps Read More

This is a really nice rye bread from a bread machine. Don't think hard rye think moist soft rye with a nice chew to the crust and a really good crumb (used regular white cycle with light crust selected). I first made this some months ago and made a note that it was an easy recipe with nice outcome. I myself a note to try again. I made this recipe again yesterday and after a test slice with butter was forced to go to the store for some deli ham swiss a bit of salami and some hot mustard. This bread just SCREAMS sandwich me.
