Light Rye Bread Recipe [Bread Machine]

Yields1 ServingPrep Time5 minsCook Time2 hrs 30 minsTotal Time2 hrs 35 mins

This is one of my go-to sandwich breads as it has a more rich and earthy flavor and less sweet than a traditional white loaf would ever have. If you have them on hand, drop in a tbsp or two of caraway seeds for a more authentic rye bread.

rye bread recipe

Wet Stuff
 1 ½ cups Water
Fats/Semi Wet Stuff
 2 tbsp Butter
Dry Stuff
 3 ¼ cups Bread Flour
 1 ⅓ cups Rye Flour
 2 tbsp Sugar
 1 ½ tsp Salt
 12 tbsp Caraway Seeds
 2 tsp Dry Yeast
1

Setup your bread machine and add all ingredients into the bread pan starting with liquids, then fats, then dry ingredients. Be sure to dig a little hole into the middle of your flour mound and pour the yeast into it as it helps activate the yeast during the initial rest.

2

Bake the bread using the regular wheat bread method. Alternatively, if you're using instant yeast, you can use the quick method if your machine has that feature.

3

Once finished, remove the loaf from the bread pan and allow to cool for at least ~20 minutes before slicing.
