"Feed the entire group with the four golden loaves this recipe produces. The bread’s wonderful mild flavor and tender texture make it outstanding," says Denise Elder, Hanover, Ontario.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    4 loaves (16 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 4 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 cups rye flour
  • 10 to 11 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup caraway seeds

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugars, shortening, molasses and salt. Add rye flour and 4 cups all-purpose flour; beat until smooth. Stir in caraway seeds and enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a very large bowl coated with cooking spray, or divide between two large bowls coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into four portions. Shape into four loaves. Place each loaf in a 9x5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

    Excellent!! I made a half recipe and it turned out great. I baked the loaves in 8x4-in loaf pans and it worked great!

    Outstanding! The end result is two tender, lofty, flavorful loaves - great for sandwiches. I did halve the recipe (using 2 T = half 1/4 cup) and it worked just fine. This recipe is a keeper!
