Hubby has been asking for some rye bread. I had made loaf a few months ago but couldn't find the recipe. So the other day I searched the World Wide Web for a good recipe. I was very surprised I couldn't find one. I didn't have a lot of the ingredients the recipes called for and I wasn't running to the store. I came up with a very simple recipe that turned out so good. It makes two loaves and both of ours are already gone.
3 1/2 cups water
4 cups bread flour
2 cups rye flour
1 packet yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
Add all ingredients to bread machine in order specified by the manufacturer. Set machine to dough cycle. (I stopped my machine 10 minutes before the end of the cycle because I thought the dough might rise out the container.) Divide dough into two loaves and place in loaf pans. Cover with a towel and let rise while you preheat oven to 450. Bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy right out of the oven with some butter - it's delish!
