Yields15 Servings

This is a popular Eastern European Bread Recipe that has caraway seeds as a dominant flavor note in a traditional rye bread. The caraway is noticeable both in the flavor of the bread and as a crispy topping. It makes a great sandwich bread and is often served with robust soups and salads.

 1 1/2 tsp salt
 1 1/2 tbsp. molasses
 1 cup water (110° F./43°C.)
 1 1/2 tbsp. butter room temperature
 1 tbsp. caraway seed
 1 cup rye flour
 2 cups bread flour
 2 tsp bread machine or active dry yeast
For the top of the loaf:
 1 egg yolk whisked with 1 tsp of water
 1 tbsp. caraway seeds for topping

Place the ingredients into the bread pan in the order indicated and select wheat-course, 1.5-pound loaf and dark crust.


After the rising cycle baste the top of the loaf with whisked egg yolk and sprinkle with caraway seeds.


When done, let rest for 10 minutes and slice and serve.
