Rye and Caraway Sandwich Loaf

Makes 1 loaf

White rye flour creates a fine, tasty, off-white coloured crumb in this classic marriage of rye and caraway seeds. I use fennel seeds if there is no caraway in the cupboard and also enjoy this loaf without any seeds. Cheddar and home-made pickle sandwiches are a family favourite when made with this good slicing loaf.

Free from Egg, Soya, Dairy, Nuts

Change Quantities:
  1. Oil a 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  2. Put the flour, yeast, sugar, salt and caraway seeds into a large bowl and blend them together.
  3. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.
  4. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  5. Knead the dough in the bowl for 50 presses. It will look and feel a little like putty. Avoid adding flour.
  6. Cover the dough bowl with oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about two hours.
  7. Knead the dough for another 20 presses then shape it and put it into an oiled 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  8. Loosely cover the tin with the oiled cling film and leave it to rise in a warm place for 35 minutes.
  9. Pre-heat the oven.
  10. Remove the cling film and bake for 40–45 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  11. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

My flour arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to try this recipe.The loaf was easy to make and has turned out well.We tried it while it was still warm--so the inside was a tiny bit "doughy" but I'm sure it will cut easily when cool.Very nice flavour with the hint of carraway and went well with smoky houmous. Definitely a four star.Many thanks!
