Rye Bread Recipe

This homemade rye bread has a hearty flavour and a dense texture, making it perfect alongside a warm soup.





  • Step 1.

    In a mixing bowl, combine the warm water, molasses, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, until foamy.
  • Step 2.

    Add the rye flour, all-purpose flour, salt, and caraway seeds to the yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  • Step 3.

    Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
  • Step 4.

    Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  • Step 5.

    Punch down the risen dough and shape it into a loaf. Place the loaf in a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  • Step 6.

    Cover the pan with a clean towel and let the dough rise again for about 45 minutes.
  • Step 7.

    Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Step 8.

    Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then, transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Step 9.

    Once cooled, slice the homemade rye bread and enjoy with a thick spread of butter.
  • Step 10.

    Store any leftover bread in an airtight container.
