I am still looking for a good rye bread to make in my bread machine. I've tried many but few are good. Do you have one you make that tastes great?
I sort of use the one from my manual, so it's probably one you've seen already. Tho, it is a very old machine (I found at the thrift). I have never made the normal recipe, but I'll bet it's pretty good. (1 lb loaf) Here it is with my substitutions:
1 c water (I add 3T extra due to wheat & flax additions)
1 T molasses
1 t white vinegar
2 c bread flour (I use 1/2c bread flour,1/2c flax meal
2/3c rye flour 1c rye flour, 2/3c whole wheat flour)
1 T brown sugar, packed
3/4 T caraway seed
1 t salt
1 3/4 t dry active yeast (I use 2t)
My machine manual recommends that:
1. if you are going to start the machine right away (not on timer) to put liquid and yeast on top
2. when making whole grain bread, start machine and set a separate timer for 15 min. After 15 min, restart machine. Guess it gets extra kneading, for what, I'm not sure.
My version of the bread is pretty dense, but I'm looking for max fiber! Makes really good toast.
