Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Dissolve the yeast in water and honey in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Allow to stand for 5 minutes or until a creamy foam forms. Add olive oil, Diamond Crystal® Fine Sea Salt, caraway seed, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix until blended. Cover and allow to rest for 15 minutes.

  • Stir 2 cups of flour into the yeast mixture and mix, adding as much additional flour as necessary for dough to pull away from the sides of the bowl and form a ball on the hook. Knead on low speed for 6 to 8 minutes until smooth and slightly sticky.

  • Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, turning to coat. Cover and let rise for about an hour or until doubled.

  • Stir dough down. Cover bowl again and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours or overnight to relax the dough.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly scatter half the Diamond Crystal® Coarse Sea Salt and half the whole caraway seeds over the surface.

  • Divide the dough in quarters; cover and refrigerate all but one quarter at a time. Divide each quarter into 6 equal pieces and roll each into a rope about 12 inches long. Place each on the prepared pan and lightly press down. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

  • Cover the baking sheet lightly and allow to rest for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Spray or brush each rope with water and sprinkle with the remaining Diamond Crystal® Coarse Sea Salt and caraway seeds.

  • Bake in preheated oven until nicely browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Transfer to a rack to cool.

This is my recipe and there is an error in step 1. Please add the 1 1/2 cup of rye flour after the olive oil mix and allow to rest. Then add the seasonings and mix. Proceed with the recipe from here. Read More
