Baking: Dark and Rye Flour Bread

Baking: Dark and Rye Flour Bread
wholemeal and rye bread

As a family we don’t eat a lot of bread. That unless we have toast or eggy bread. But no matter what I always knew that homemade bread is always better than the shop bought bread.

Now that my mother gave me her bread maker too I love experimenting with different kind of breads – the healthier the better.

I tried making a bread by hand too but my kneading skills are not so good I am afraid.

Anyway here is the recipe for Dark and Rye Flour Bread:

Ingredients for around 1000 g of bread:

  • 350 ml of water
  • 25 g of salted butter
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 270 g of wholemeal flour
  • 270 g of rye flour
  • 1 tbsp of dry yeast

Now if you are using a bread maker like i did all you have to do is to add all your ingredients to the bread maker, choose the right program/setting and you are go. It takes about 3 hours and without no effort at all you have a great and tasty bread!

Now if you don’t have a bread maker you should probably have a look online at the instruction for the kneading and proving. I found this recipe on BBC Food website quite useful.

We made the bread on sunday and we still have about 40% out of it. I only eat one slice of bread a day because of my diet.

Look out for some more recipes as i promise you this one will not be the last one. Kara is asking for a raisins bread.

Do you bake your own bread or prefer the one from the shop?

    Yum! You can't beat fresh bread – and the smell!

    My trusty breadmaker finally conked out recently and I miss it! I'll have to get a replacement.
