Help with my Rye Bread Recipe
The following is a recipe I use with in my bread machine - Breadman TR441. Original is for 2lb loaf, I have adjusted for 1.5 lb. After the recipe listing are my current admustments and questions/concerns
Recipe Adjustment Factor is 0.75 Times Original Amounts (Original Amounts in parentheses.)
Rye Bread Recipe
1 1/4 cups water 80 degrees (1 2/3 cup)
1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil (2 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons molasses (1/4 cup)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt (2 teaspoons)
1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered milk (2 tablespoons)
3/4 cup rye flour (1 cup)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour (1/2 cup)
2 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons bread flour (3 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds (2 tablespoons)
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (3 1/4 teaspoons)
No rye setting so I use whole wheat setting 3 hr, 40 min.
1 cup rye flour
1/2 cup WW flour
1 1/2 cup unbleached bread flour
Results: Flavor is ok, but loaf is still moist in center, and not getting much rise. Trying to find as simple a recipe as possible. trying to stay as "wholesome" as possible too. i.e. not using standard white or all-purpose flower. I would like the bread to be as "whole" rye & wheat as possible.
Thanks in advance to any input. If anyone has an awesome rye bread machine recipe to share - that's great too!
