This is my new favorite bread!
I made it today, using a sourdough
sponge and after several hours of
raising, added white and dark rye flour,
And 2 Tbs. of soft butter, and 2 Tbs.
of molasses and 2 tsp. salt, and 1 Tbs.
rapidrise yeast, and 1 cup HOT water.
I mixed it up and then added 1 1/2 cups
high gluten hard wheat bread flour and kneaded it for about 10 minutes. It was a rather sticky
dough, so I oiled the bowl and let it raise for about 2 1/2 hours and then cut the dough in half
and added some golden flax seed that I had soaking in hot water. The golden flax became soft,
and the water almost gelatinous. I love the caraway flavor with rye so I added a Tbs of caraway
seeds as well, shaped each into a loaf and put into a greased loaf pan for a final raise.
It was ready in about an hour and a half and I baked them at 350 degrees F. The loaves were
high and firm- and the flavor – PERFECT!
I had a little visitor for dinner tonight- Aiden asked for a second piece of bread after he had
finished his meal.
This is His new favorite bread, too, I think!
