Easy Rye Bread. This is a lovely straightforward bread recipe for rye bread which gives you a soft bread texture. Great to eat on it's own or use for sandwiches. Freezer friendly too! | Lovefoodies.com
This is one of 2 rye bread recipes I posted in answer to a request for a marbled rye bread. My suggestion for making the marbled rye is to knead the dark rye dough together with a light rye dough (Recipe # 43286), before shaping the loaves. (Of course that will make 4 loaves, since each recipe makes 2 loaves).This recipe makes a wonderful dark rye bread! (90 minute prep time includes rising time).
Eastern Europeans, especially Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, Ukrainians and Slovaks, love rye bread. The coarser and darker, the better. There's a staggering variety of ryes, from sourdoughs to buttermilks to cracked rye meal breads. One could conceivably enjoy a different rye bread every day of the week.
This is my favorite rye bread recipe of all time. I could have just as easily called it Swedish Rye Bread or Aroma Therapy Bread for that matter (takes the coveted baking bread smell to another level). And if you’re not into sourdough baking, no problem, I cover the instant yeast version as well.
