Apple Whole Rye Bread from Bernd Bakery - moist, wonderful, delicious!

This is my third go at making this bread. The only case where I didn't follow the recipe was the yeast water (mine is in the works). I substituted dry yeast (around 4 grams).

To my surprise you do not taste the apple (could me my palate isn't picking it up) but I think biggest benefit I've noticed the bread doesn't taste too "grainy".

Here's the link to the recipe (starts in German, scroll down for English version)

In my third try I did make a couple of modifications, based on what I had on hand -

Substituted oat groats for rye groats (this is what I had on hand)

Replaced rye in soaker with wheat, I didn't have enough rye on hand!

Overall, this is a really a great recipe. Especially for a perpetual tinkerer like myself. Hhhmmm..maybe mango in place of apple next time?

Thanks for the link to the formula for this bread.  I have started tinkering with these kinds of loaves too and this one looks like it will be fun to do and I will learn something in the process by using my YW as a soaker.  (I currently use it in my leavens and for soaking fruit in some of the fruited loaves I bake but this is a new twist for me.)

Your loaf looks really nice so thanks for posting a photo too.

Hello Janet, it a little while for me to get comfortable with substituting flours. Next step for me is creating my own recipes.

Bernd's website has nice recipes, you can tell he's really through and tested each recipe.

Not sure if you have read any of ANdy's posts on his Borodinsky but it is  what got me started on baking these types of breads and the method of mixing is really simple.

Yes, his blog looks thorough so thanks for adding the link.  I really appreciate it.
