Supreme Rye Bread - The Soft Rye Bread Everybody Will Love
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: German
Serves: 2
Today we're going to bake a unique rye bread that everyone will love. This bread has the amazing flavor of rye bread, but the light texture of a regular white farm loaf.
  • 625ml Warm water
  • 60g Black strap molasses
  • 30g Butter, melted
  • 30ml Brown sugar
  • 18g Soy lecithin (available at most health shops)
  • 20g Instant yeast
  • 600g Strong white bread flour
  • 300g Stoneground rye flour
  • 20ml Salt
  • 10ml Caraway or fennel seeds
  1. To start, pour 625ml of warm water into your mixer bowl.
  2. Add 60g of black strap molasses and stir this in briefly.
  3. Pour in 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 30g of melted butter, 20g instant yeast and 18g of soy lecithin.
  4. The lecithin binds the oil in the melted butter to the water. This dramatically increases the shelf life of the bread. In addition, rye flour has a low gluten content and the lecithin replaces this shortage in order that rye loaf will rise as well as regular bread does.
  5. Use your stick blender to shear the lecithin into the liquids.
  6. Cover the bowl and give it 15 minutes for the yeast to activate.
  7. In the meantime, measure out 600g strong white bread flour, 300g stoneground rye flour, 4 teastoons salt and 2 teaspoons caraway or fennel seeds.
  8. Add these four ingredients to the yeast liquid.
  9. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached and knead the dough on slow speed for 2 minutes. Increase the speed to medium slow for a further 8 minutes.
  10. You will have a beautifully smmoth dough that is only slightly sticky.
  11. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  12. While the dough rises, rub the insides of 2 large loaf pans with butter.
  13. Scatter flour over the inner surfaces of the pans and tip out any excess flour.
  14. As you can see this dough rises very well.
  15. Turn the dough out onto a lightly fliured work surface and knead it briefly to knock it down.
  16. Weigh the dough and divide it into 2 equal portions of around 850g.
  17. Working with one portion at a time, work the dough into a rectangle as with as the bread pan. Fold the top edge down two thirds of the way, then fold the botykm edge up over this.
  18. Place the rolled dough into the pan with seam side down. Flatten the roll to fill the bottm of the pan.
  19. Cover both pans and allow these yo rise for a further 30 minutes in a warm place.
  20. Once again, you can see clearly just how well this rises.
  21. Use a razor sharp knife to slash the tops of the loaves. Not only does this lokk cool, but it deflates the lids and prevents them from blowing while baking.
  22. Bake the loaves in a preheated oven at 220c or 430f for 25 to 30 minutes until the loaves sound hollow when tapped.
  23. Remove the loaves from the onen and turn them out onto a wire rack to cool.
  24. Allow the bread to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
  25. Here we can see the beautiful light texture with incredibly good oven spring.
