Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine warm water, yeast, and honey in a large bowl; stir gently. Place a dry cloth over the bowl and let sit until yeast is dissolved and foamy, about 5 minutes.

  • Add 1 cup all-purpose flour, rye flour, shortening, caraway seeds, and salt. Beat vigorously with a spoon for 2 minutes, or blend with an electric mixer on low speed, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl often.

  • Stir in whole wheat flour and remaining 3/4 cup all-purpose flour until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes.

  • Stir the batter down, beating about 25 strokes. Place in a greased loaf pan, smoothing out the top with a floured hand. Cover and let rise until dough reaches the top of the pan, about 40 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Carefully tip loaf out of the pan onto a work surface and gently tap bottom of loaf. If it sounds hollow, bread is done.
