Rye Bread


I decided to try making rye bread. For my first attempt, I just varied it off of my mixer bread recipe. I went with using a very slight variation, planning to then adjust from there.

I used the olive oil, 1/4 cup of molasses instead of 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 pound of rye flour and 1 pound of all-purpose flour.

It ended up being a bit denser, with a pleasant faint sour tang. Next time, I'm planning on adding caraway seeds and possibly upping the amount of molasses. I'll see how that is, and keep adjusting.
