Lately I’ve been getting a bit more adventurous with my bread. Last week when I made whole wheat bread, I ground some rye berries (I would have bought rye flour but couldn’t find it here and happened to have rye berries on hand), added some caraway seed and made a fantastic whole wheat rye bread. I think my family is getting spoiled!
I added a few tablespoons of ground flax seed too. Flax seed is supposed to be really good for you! When I divide the dough in half, no matter how careful I think I’m being, I never get close so I use the scale to weigh out the loaves.
Cover the loaves with greased plastic wrap and now I can go downstairs and sew while the bread rises.
Now it’s ready to bake. I have to stay upstairs now or I’ll forget all about the bread baking.
Turned out perfect! I used my regular whole wheat bread recipe, but substituted about 2 cups of rye flour in place of the whole wheat flour and added 2 tablespoons ground flax seed.
