This rye is moist and stays moist and soft past the first day. I added extra caraway because I love it, plus about a teaspoon of fennel as well. The extra caraway and fennel added flavor without overpowering the taste of rye.
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 different flours in addition to the rye; it always turns out great!!
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 get two 9x5's!
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 brought out the caraway flavor better.
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 fluffy, moist, flavorful - just perfect. Oh! Wait, I did use 1 tsp of orange extract instead of zest, and I didn't detect any orange flavor, but I think it was perfect the way it was. I'll probably just omit it altogether next time. Highly recommend you give this one a whirl if you're looking for a sweet bread. I used the 2 lb loaf setting with 1/3 of the recipe, medium crust, and white loaf. Came out perfect as you can see in my picture :). Enjoy!
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 make 2 small loaves. My pans are 8x5 as opposed to a 9x5 loaf pan so I can typically make smaller loaves with them. However I could've let it rise longer for a larger loaf. I don't really taste the orange so I'd add more orange zest or use some oj next time. All in all this is a nice rye. Thanks for the recipe.
This was a great recipe. It definitely made 3 large loafs of bread. Perfect for sandwich making. I put in an additional tblsp of orange zest. My whole family loved it. The only down side was that rye flavor was too mild for my family's liking. I will definitely will make again but I will add 2 more cups of rye flour and 2 cups less of white.
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 really makes a lot so I made 6 small loaves and 1 large loaf and hoping it freezes ok.
