Bread - Recipe Name


Bread - Rye and Whole Wheat with Caraway and Sesame Seeds 4 tsp. Dry Yeast
2 cups Whole Wheat Bread Flour
2 cups Rye Flour (whole grain)
2 tsp. Caraway Seeds

We mix our dough in either our bread making machine or in a mixer. We also grind our own grain in our Vita-Mix (if you are grinding your own grain and it is hot from grinding eliminate warming the water and add the yeast with the water).

Add the ingredients in the order listed, with the exception of the Sesame Seeds.  Place the dry yeast and flour in the mixing bowl or in the bread maker container.  The total kneading time should be approximately 20 minutes.

Place a thin layer of Sesame Seeds on a bread board or clean counter top.  Place the dough on the Sesame Seeds and form into a cylinder about 1/3 m. (12") long.  Cut in two pieces and reform into into a loaf making sure that the the entire surface, including the ends are coated with the Sesame Seeds.  Final length should be slightly less than the length of the baking pan.  Place in two 12 cm. X 24 cm. (4-1/2" X 9") bread pans.


Set the oven warming drawer on low, or the oven to warm setting ±45°C (120°F).  Be careful that the oven does not overheat.  Place the bread pans in the drawer or oven to raise the dough.   When the dough is slightly over double the size, turn the heat up to 175-180°C (350-360°F).  Bake for approximately 35 minutes.  When the crust is firm, but not crispy, the bread is done.  Remove the bread from the oven and from the baking pans.  Let cool on a wire rack.  Enjoy!
