Levy's Deli Rye Bread (Variation)
I made this lovely rye bread from the Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum this weekend.
If you like a deli-style rye, this is the bread to try. It has a fantastic balance of rye flavor and a beautiful crumb that stays fresh-tasting for days. The crust is just beautiful (never mind my scoring). And the oven spring on this bread, in my 10 1/2" clay baker
Is truly spectacular!
This bread weighed just shy of 2 lbs (14.9 oz to be exact)--more than I thought my clay baker could even handle.
But there's a secret. My "variation" was actually a mistake--a mix up between caraway seeds and anise seeds. And delicious--I don't like caraway at all, but it was truly yummy with anise. A good mistake.
