My parents were emigrants from Czechoslovakia and my Mother would bake this bread when guests came over for dinner. Today, every time I bake it, I get nostalgic for those days. —Millie Feather, Baroda, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2-1/2 cups rye flour
  • 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add brown sugar, caraway, oil, salt and remaining water; mix well. Stir in rye flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; divide in half. Shape each half into a ball; place in two greased 8-in. round baking pans or ovenproof skillets. Flatten balls to a 6-in. diameter. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 loaves.

"Followed exactly as stated and boy I became a superstar at home and at work! Very good recipe! The bread is moist and the caraway is not overpowering."
