In Amite, Louisiana, Audrey Lanier relies on her bread machine to fix this moist dark brown loaf. Satisfying slices get plenty of flavor from aniseed, caraway and fennel, along with bursts of sweetness from the raisins.

"We like this homemade rye so much that I seldom buy bread anymore," writes May Ann Bonk of New Berlin, Wisconsin. "For the past 10 years, I've made this bread for our church bake sales and it always goes quickly."
This nicely spiced caked, with chunks of apple and a hint of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, always wins raves. I like it best served warm with a dollop of whipped topping. It freezes well, too.

"The recipe for this sausage roll has been in my family for years," says Luella Drake of Auburn, Indiana. "A tube of refrigerated pizza dough makes it quick and easy, but it tastes like it took hours to prepare."
Caraway, poppy seed, sage and nutmeg give this tender bread its superb flavor. "I received a blue ribbon at our fall festival for this recipe," notes Doris White of De Land, Illinois. "My bread machine makes it convenient to prepare the dough for this loaf—it's light, delicious and the wheat flour makes it extra nutritious."
Caraway seeds spark the flavor of this rustic loaf that's flecked with chopped corned beef and Swiss cheese. "Slices are great alongside sour or salad," writes Elvera Dallman from her home in Franklin, Nebraska.
Old-fashioned oats, brown sugar and molasses make these down-home loaves the best-tasting rye bread I've ever had. In fact, guests often ask me for the recipe. Slices are wonderful for sandwiches.
