Bread Machine Caraway Rye Bread – Recipe
I have been experimenting with all kinds of delicious loaves since receiving a bread machine for Christmas. When I was going through our spice rack and found an unopened container of caraway seeds, I was ready to try something new. It sounded like something I wanted to make and I found this recipe that’s super easy.
In traditional by-hand rye bread, a long-fermented dough is re-created through the vinegar in the dough. With the addition of rye flour, the bread really did taste like your average deli rye and it was light and fluffy with a nice buoyancy when you press on the top of the loaf. It was great for sandwiches and toast and we ate it in no time. In fact, I’m sure I will do it again and again.
