Ray Bauer's Swedish Rye Bread (Limpa) Recipe


Step 1

Combine the first 7 ingredients (using FRESH seeds only!) in 1 1/3 cup of boiling water and soak for 1 hour minimum. (This pre-soaks the cracked wheat and pre-releases the other flavors.)

Step 2

Dump this concoction into a bowl and add the remaining 6 ingredients.

Step 3

Set your bread machine to White and bake at the medium setting...

Step 4

Manual -- do the normal knead and rise tricks. Bake at 350 F for 30 - 35 minutes. (test this since oven temps. vary)

Makes 1 loaf
