Years ago, I was looking for a rye bread recipe to use with our post Saint Patrick’s Day corned beef. I found two recipes to try. This is the second one. (Here’s the first light rye bread recipe.) Once I made both breads, I had a taste off. Click here to learn more about that.
Extra Light Rye Bread Recipe
1 1/2 Cups water
2 Tablespoons olive oil
4 ¼ Cups white bread flour
2/3 Cup light rye flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
This makes a two pound loaf. Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the bread machine first.
This bread is lighter in color than the other loaf. The bread is less firm and a more cake-like texture.
