Food for thought: Rye Bread

Rye bread is one of my family’s favorite. It’s healthy, light and tasty. The preparation is very simple and just under 1.5 hours. I normally bake two loaves at a time and save one for another week or two. It can stay in the freezer for a month or two and still good after. This recipe will give you a softer and tastier rye bread unlike the one from the supermarket and I am sure you’ll love it!

Recipe: 2 Loaves


  • 2 cups rye flour
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 tsp instant yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp dry potato flakes
  • 4 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 olive oil
  • 1/2 pineapple or orange juice


  • Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl or mixer
  • Add warm water and mix
  • While mixing add the olive oil and juice alternately
  • Continue to mix well
  • Knead for about 5-10 minutes
  • Let the dough rise until double
  • Punch the dough to remove air pockets
  • Knead for about 5 minutes
  • Divide dough into two parts and put into a greased bread pans
  • Set aside for about 15 minutes
  • Brush with butter
  • Bake at 360F for 30 minutes
