"The recipe for this delicious bread came from my aunt," notes Carolyn Rose Sykora of Bloomer, Wisconsin. "I made just a few changes to it—and it's been a favorite ever since." The dark rustic loaves are moist and tender with a delicate rye and sweet molasses flavor.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup rye flour, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, 1/2 cup oil, molasses and honey to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. Stir in remaining whole wheat and rye flours and enough all-purpose flour to form a medium stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; sprinkle with raisins. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Grease a bowl with the remaining oil. Place dough in a bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into four pieces; shape each into a round loaf. Place 4 in. apart on two baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 325° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 4 loaves (8 slices each).
