Make this rye bread recipe in your bread machine if you have one. If you don't have a bread machine, I really think you'll want one.
Why? It's so quick and easy AND, surprise of surprises, it really does taste like German bread! I've looked a long time to find authentic German recipes for making bread. It's an interesting journey. Finally, yesterday I was able to enjoy this rye bread.
Using an easy bread machine method keeps the time in the kitchen to a bare minimum, while at the same time filling the house with such a fragrance!
I've had my Black and Decker All-In-One Breadmaker for years.
I use it for making breads, but mostly for making dough. It's the easiest way I've found to make yeast doughs for all sorts of baking.
When it's time to replace my current bread machine, I'll be buying another Black and Decker like the one shown here.

The breads and buns are the most difficult to replicate outside of Germany. This rye bread recipe uses a wonderful mix of flours to get just the right taste. And, on top of that, it's super easy!
Whenever I visit Germany, one of the things I really look forward to are the German baked goods. There's at least one bakery in every town where everything is fresh made that morning. Buns, breads, cakes, tortes, cookies, etc., etc., etc.....
And, being able to make authentic German bread recipes in a bread machine, really is a bonus.
Best Sourdough No-Knead Bread ...
There is one type of bread, though, that I created many, many years ago when our boys were young and we were on a 'health food' kick.
It was a most interesting experiment ... and the family survived! In fact, what I created was a no-knead sourdough bread that is absolutely amazing.
It does take a bit of work, or actually, a bit of time ... but the results are a perfect loaf of bread, every time. As well, it's as healthy as you want to make it.
I normally put in almost anything I can find in the way of seeds and whole grains. It's a different loaf all the time, but each time, it works. Check it out here.
But now, are you ready to make some rye bread?
