Ingredients

  • 3 c
    warm water
  • 4 tsp
    yeast
  • 1/2 c
    honey, molasses, brown sugar or white sugar - your choice
  • 1 Tbsp
    salt

    melted butter
  • MIX WELL AND LET STAND FOR 5 MINUTES - THEN ADD:

  • 4 - 5 c
    rye flour
  • 2 c
    white flour
  • STIR ALL INGREDIENTS WELL. USE ENOUGH FLOUR TO MAKE A STICKY DOUGH. YOU DON'T REALLY HAVE TO KNEAD THE DOUGH. COVER AND LET STAND UNTIL DOUBLE. I LET IT STAND SEVERAL HOURS, UNTIL IN ALMOST COLLAPSES ON ITSELF. SHAPE INTO LOAVES AND LET RISE.

How to Make Plain Old Rye Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. BAKE AT 350 DEGREES FOR 35-45 MINUTES. I USE A MEAT THERMOMETER AND COOK IT UNTIL IT REACHES 180-190 DEGREES
  2. I sometimes add about a 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats that I have blended into flour and 1 cup of old fashioned oats, when I am adding the rye flour. Then I only use 4 cups of rye flour
