This loaf is a little more complicated, requiring a rye starter, but man-o-man, you'll be hard pressed to find a tastier rye. My mom is from NY and she pronounced it spectacular.

The formula spreadsheet is downloadable, so it's an easy recipe to scale. (The 2400g mix makes two good sized loaves.) Be sure to add the onions!

(If you don't have a rye starter on hand, here is an easy explanation of rye sourdough starter:

Rye starter is also a very good based for a pretty spectacular pumpernickel.

I found http://www.thefreshloaf.com/ site to be for the more sophisticated and experienced baker, of which I am neither. For those novices like myself I found this site had instructional videos for every recipe:

http://www.thebreadkitchen.com/

The hostess speaks in easy-to-understand and impeccable English, and seems quite engaging and cheerful about what she's doing. Most importantly, accompanying every recipe is a detailed written list of ingredients and direction along with the video. I might give her Polish Rye Bread a try soon, and the recipe for Sesame Burger Buns is fairly appealing also. Back to the kitchen! RAY

That is a fine looking loaf of rye bread Bob! Why not post the ingredients and baking directions? RAY

Ray I made up a little batch of 38% rye flour bread and found that I needed to increase the liquid by about 15% over what would make a very slack white bread. Just saying to be looking for it.

Ross, you wrote:
I am not sure why this post got so wide. Maybe I didn't space the pictures enough when I pasted the link. Maybe Our Chuck wagon master can fix it.
That's it. I've gone back to try to separate them but I'm afraid I might lose one in an attempt to space it. Better to re-post.
The computer keeps it in time sequence automatically but we can always have you copy the new post's corrected format (taken from the box) and re-post it. I would have to have you send it to me by PM exactly as you want it. Or, we can just live with it. :roll:

Thanks for your kind words, Bob.

I used a cooked corn starch/water glaze immediately after the loaves came out of the oven - it dries as the bread cools and makes the crust chewy and shiny. As for the onions, I cook them to golden brown, put them in the cuisinart to make a paste, then add to the dough prior to a long knead.

And Ray? I though the same thing about the Fresh Loaf recipes until I made 'em once or five times. Then it all made sense and the loaves emerging from the oven were the kind I had always dreamed of baking. You're well on your way to being experienced - and doing a fine job of it, too!

Thanks Lynn, I think your rye loaves look wonderful. I now have my burger bun / sausage roll recipe due to Ross' guidance, the scaulded flour and percentages work perfect for me.

11 ounces sifted bread flour
2.7 oz boiled water to the flour
3 oz warm milk with 1 tsp dry yeast & 3/4 tsp salt dissolved in
1&1/2 tbsp. sugar
1&1/2 tbsp. melted butter

Everything dumped in the Kitchenaid and kneaded for about 8 minutes, nice smooth dough.

Image

90 minute rise in warm place, perfect

Image

Small batch of four burger buns, the crumb and crust I've been searching for

Image

Using the percentages Ross led me to this recipe can be produced in any size and be repeatable everytime, it's perfect. Thank you Ross for all your help! Next, on to the rye, but not till after a double hip-shot cheeseburger with sauteed shrooms and avocado. RAY

A little Rye bread in a loaf pan

Post by ssorllih » Fri Jan 10, 2014 02:44

As I promised I made a small batch of rye bread and baked it in loaf pans.
Image
My pet peeve is posts without recipes. So here it comes: Some of these numbers are derived by calculation because I am using from a previously made batch of white sauce.
With that said, The liquid for this was a dilute white sauce made with 3.5 ounces of milk and 3.5 ounces of water and a half tablespoon each of butter and flour. Into that cold white sauce I added 3 ounces of stone ground rye flour, stirred it in and let it sit for 24 hours. Next I stirred in a teaspoon of yeast and 5 ounces of all purpose white flour and a scant teaspoon of salt. When it was uniformly moist I left it for an hour. Then I kneaded it through just 20 folds. That means make a ball and flatten it fold it in half and flatten it again, fold it again. there is a pattern developing here ;-) .Put the ball in the bowl and grease it with a bit of fat and let it rise for quite a while. divide it and shape each half for a loaf.
Image
Let those rise until they are fat.Image

Image
And bake they at 375°F for 30 minutes.
Image
then slice for quality control testing.
Image
This bread has a nice rye taste with no added flavors and I would count it as a good basic recipe that with care could be flavored as one would desire. The crumb is strong enough to allow spreading rather cold butter but still tender to the bite.
