No Knead Rye Bread

Maggie ^O^


This is the easiest ever bread to make. It has wonderful flavor and the best part is no kneading !

You can make it in a standard loaf pan, a french bread loaf pan or put it on a baking sheet and do it Artisan style !

If you aren't a fan of caraway seeds you can leave them out of use less than the recipe calls for. The first time I made it I went easy on the caraway seeds .. 2nd time I used the full amount - delicious !

This rye bread can be made with light rye flour for a more subtle rye flavor.

If only I had some corned beef or pastrami to put on this !

1 loaf


  • 2 c
    luke warm filtered water ** see note
  • 2-1/4 tsp
    active dry yeast ( 1 pkt if not using bulk)
  • 3 c
    all purpose flour
  • 1-1/3 c
    dark rye flour
  • 1 Tbsp
    gluten flour
  • 1/2 tsp
    kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp
    caraway seeds

How to Make No Knead Rye Bread


  1. Prep your baking vessel with parchment paper. You can use a standard loaf pan or you can do it artisan style by laying it out on a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium size bowl put the water and sprinkle the yeast over top. Allow it to bloom for about 5 minutes.
  3. Sift the all purpose flour, the rye flour and the gluten flour together into a medium size bowl and then sprinkle the kosher salt and the caraway seeds over the flour.
  4. Stir the flour into the yeast mix and incorporate well.
  5. Spray a medium bowl with cooking spray and transfer your dough to that bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot for 1 hour. I put mine into the microwave.
  6. After 1 hour, rub your hands with a little flour and pick up the dough from the bowl. It will be sticky. Gently fold it under itself until you have a ball shape. Re-flour your hands as needed.
  7. Place the dough into or onto your cooking vessel and cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.

    While the dough is resting for that final 30 minutes - preheat your oven to 400.
  8. After 30 minutes place it into a preheated oven and bake for 35-45 minutes until browned and done.
  9. If you used a loaf pan you may want to remove the loaf from the pan so the side don't get too soft. Cool completely before slicing.
  10. ** NOTE :

    To mix it up a little you can mix the water with beer .. I would suggest going half beer and half water. Your preference on the beer - either light or dark. You will get a really nice flavor from this alteration.

    Also .. add more caraway seeds if desired or as someone suggested to me .. if you don't like the actual seeds but do like the flavor just grind them up !
