I've made this three times now so my revised review is: very tasty rye bread but I increased rye flour to 2 cups and decreased bread flour to 1-2/3 cups. this enhanced the rye flavor. The loaf is pretty small but has a nice texture inside and out. Read More

I've made this rye twice now. The flavor is not bad but the density is more reminiscent of brick than bread. Methinks this recipe needs more water. Read More

After many Rye Bread recipe failures this one came through for me with flying colors. I made some subtle changes however. I increased the amount of water to 1-1/4 cups, the amount of oil to 1/4 cup, and the amount of caraway seeds to 3 teaspoons. I also combined the water, honey and yeast and allowed it to sit for 10 minutes prior to adding the remaining ingredients. I set my bread machine on the dough cycle and then transferred the dough to a greased bread pan when it was finished. I did not punch the dough down. I formed it into a loaf shape, covered it with a damp towel, and allowed it to rise for 40 minutes. I baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees and it turned out beautifully. Read More

By using a total of 1 1/4 cups of water and using the "Dough" setting on my bread machine I made the best free-form rye loaf I've made to date. Read More

I will echo the other positive comments. I have probably made this recipe 25 times now with variations and find it to be the best I've tried. I take it for lunch almost every day. It is moist it does keep longer than others It bakes well in the oven and it does need at least 1 1/4 cups of water. Really excellent recipe! Read More

As others sis I upped the water. I actually started with 1 and 1/4 cup and added another tbs after that. I also upped the oil as suggested by one review to 1/4 cup. Then as another reveiwer sugested I went with 2 cups rye and 1 2/3 cup regular flour turned out great. Read More

I made this without a bread machine (although the kitchen aid mixer does about as much of my work) and it was wonderful. Very fluffy great texture and delicious. I added all the dry ingredients plus the oil to the mixer bowl while mixing the warm water honey yeast and milk powder together and let them sit for 10 minutes. Then I added the liquid (1 1/4 cup water and about another tbl spn added during the kneading) and let the machine knead for about 5 minutes. I let it rise in a warm place (greased bowl with tight lid floating in a sink of warm water) for 45 minutes punched it down and put it in a warm oven for 5 minutes and then took it out while the oven pre-heated. Baked for 40 minutes @ 350. My husband says I "bake good bread." Read More

This bread stayed fresh for longer than other breads. It is still good after three or four days. I like more caraway flavor. So I use at least 1 Tablespoon. I also used 1 1/4 cups of water. It is delicious. Read More

I made this bread as stated (except for the caraway seeds we didn't have any on hand). The only thing I did differently is to make it by hand. I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. Some people complained that it made a dinky sized loaf but I don't think it was small. I thought is was a good sized loaf. Granted I'm going to have to make 2 loaves this week instead of my usual one loaf because everyone keeps going back for more sandwhiches. Read More
