A simple Austrian/German white bread with caraway seeds. From my bread machine cookbook, this bread recipe was adapted for preparation in a KitchenAid stand up mixer. Delicious toasted! "White bread with caraway is a favorite in Austria. It is excellent as a sandwich bread."

How to Make Weissbrot mit Kümmel

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pour the milk and water into the KitchenAid stand up mixer bowl. Add the yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes or until the yeast starts to foam. (I also added the butter the final minute to soften it, too.)
  • 2Add the flour, salt, egg and sugar to the yeast mixture. KNEAD for about 2-3 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • 3Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  • 4Punch down dough and place on a floured cutting board. KNEAD a few times then shape into 1 large round loaf or 2 smaller loaves.
  • 5Place the loaves on a parchment-lined jelly roll pan and let rise in a warm oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 6Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the top of the loaves with an egg-water wash. Sprinkle each loaf with caraway seeds. You can also score the crust if you wish.
  • 7Bake the loaves for about 20-25 minutes or until the tops are golden and the bread is hollow sounding when tapped on the bottom.
