The Rye Bread Experiment

  1. I proof 3 times. I also use a little more all purpose flour and a little less rye flour for a better rise. First proof is 90 minutes, second is 45 minutes. I then loaf the dough and let that rise an hour. I always proof in the oven. I put a damp towel on the rack, loosely over parchment paper and cover with another damp cloth. Turning on the oven light gives it just enough warmth.
    Regardless of what the recipe says, I do it this way for all my breads and they all come out perfectly.
    Good luck! ☺️ 🍞

      1. I can’t even eat bread 😳.
        However, it makes great bribes…er… loving gifts for friends! I do a dark pumpernickel with a light rye, roll them together for a marbles bread. Pretty easy yet super impressive. 😁

      2. That bread sounds amazing! We’ve had to make transition to a mostly vegan diet so a lot of my fun stuff has to go to friends and neighbors too. If you can I’d love that pumpernickel recipe 😊
