My Dr was recently extolling the virtues of rye bread for the diabetic. More fiber and the lowest glycemic index of any bread. This recipe makes a small 1 lb loaf. Baking time is however long it takes your machine. I always use my bread maker to make the dough and then bake in the oven as I really dislike the holes it leaves in the bottom. My standard bread baking is 350 degrees until the loaf is nicely browned and sounds hollow when lightly thumped.
