This gorgeous rye bread has just a touch of sweetness and the perfect amount of caraway seeds. With a crusty top and firm texture, it holds up well to sandwiches, but a pat of butter will do the job, too. —Holly Wade, Harrisonburg, Virginia

"This bread is excellent! I've made it in a bread machine on dough cycle. I've made it into a loaf in an extra large loaf pan. I've also used full flavored molasses when I didn't have light molasses. Everyone that's tasted it has loved it."

"Made this recipe yesterday for thr first time. I love it!! It did take 1 1/2 hours for the first rise. I didn't have light molasses so I used honey. The bread is moist, texture is excellent. This will be my rye bread recipe from now on."
