  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm (110 degree F) water. Let sit until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the hot water in a large mixing bowl, add the honey, salt, sugar, orange zest, caraway seeds and butter; briefly stir. Let cool to lukewarm.
  3. Combine the yeast mixture with the honey orange mixture. Stir in the rye flour. Mix the bread flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl. Place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, lightly grease three 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into three equal pieces. Form each piece into a loaf and place in prepared pans. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the top of the loaves are golden and the bottoms sound hollow when tapped.

I made this bread today. Surprised it didn't really taste like rye. Was really disappointed for that but the bread did taste good none the less. I will still be looking for a good rye bread. ...

This is a delicious and versitile recipe. It rises amazingly, and makes a moist, fluffy bread for the amount of rye flour it contains. I've also tried varying the amount of sugar and using diffe...

It works well w/whole wheat and brown suger (we don't use white flour); in fact we love it so much I make it weekly for our sandwich bread! Interestingly, I tried to halve the recipe and still g...

I used molasses in place of the sugar, and added extra caraway as others have suggested. This is a great bread. Making 1/3 the recipe yielded a huge free formed loaf!

This is a nice rye bread. Very similar to what my Swedish Grandma used to make. Nice and moist and very flavorful. The one change I made was to use ground caraway instead of the whole seeds. It...

I thoroughly enjoyed this bread recipe. I didn't make any changes other than making a 1/3 batch and using a bread machine. It's exactly as sweet as I was hoping for with a honey bread. It's fluf...

Pretty good. A dense, hearty rye that is a bit sweet--not surprisingly, with the amount of sugar and honey. I think I'd prefer just honey, though. I made a 1/3 of the recipe and was able to m...
