This pretty round bread's old-world flavor is so comforting and delicious. Just the right amount of caraway flavors the rye.—Connie Moore, Medway, Ohio

"I mixed this in the breadmaker on the dough cycle, kneaded it and made two round loaves and baked in the oven. Because of our high altitude in Colorado, I reduced the yeast to 2 tsp. I find that most bread dough recipes in this altitude rarely need over 1-1/4 tsp of yeast per loaf. We enjoyed it sliced for dinner and also it made excellent sandwiches . . great reubens!"
