Rye bread

rye bread

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print
  • 300g water
  • 15g instant/rapid rise yeast
  • 20g honey
  • 500g bread flours- I split it 150g rye, 200g wholemeal, 150g strong white
  • 10g salt
  • Olive oil, coarse sea salt and sesame seeds to brush just before baking.
How to
Bring water, yeast and honey to tepid in TM bowl. 37° until light stops flashing sp3.
Add flours and salt and mix on dough setting for 5 minutes. MC OFF
I generally leave my dough to rise in TM bowl for the first rise if I can spare the bowl. Good reason to invest in a second TM bowl. Leave for an hour. It will be coming up to top.
You can knead again on dough setting for 1 minute or if you love the whole punching a knocking back your dough tip it out and do it by hand.
Divide and shape either into one large loaf, 2 smaller loaves, or rolls.
Set aside again for 40 minutes until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 210°C/430°F
Brush with olive oil, seed mix and bake for 20-40 minutes depending on size of loaf or rolls.

...with Thermomix marmalade

as my regular readers will know I have not reached expert status with my sourdough- this is an understatement – it is a work in progress as I haven't yet given up. Most rye breads I have come across require a sour dour starter so I was pleased that this TM recipe from Easily cook your Own was so successful.

The taste will vary depending on the mix of flours.

        oh cool – and I heard rye bread is really good for us – along with sourdough… and I like the down view of the shot too

        Yes, rye, is a really good whole grain. It would be a very dense bread if it were 100% rye but all the richness comes through if you mix with spelt, nut or wholemeal flours.


i'd love to hear from you...
