You probably have a few bread recipes that are your bread staples. Homemade bread is delicious and if it's a good recipe, then you can't really go wrong with your bread. However, if you are getting a little tired of your usual bread recipes, you may be wanted to mix things up a bit with some new recipes. Here is a great bread recipe that will add some variety to your own bread box. If you can succeed I making this, then you'll be set and have a greater variety of bread recipes that you can enjoy!

Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • 2/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 cups of molasses
  • 4 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 cups of rye flour
  • 4 cups of boiling water
  • 12 cups of white flour
  • 2 tablespoons of yeast dissolved in 1 cup of water

In a large bowl, mix the vegetable oil, the molasses, the salt, the rye flour, and the boiling water all together. Use a hand mixer to mix it all together and make sure that you mix it well. The mixture will be hot, and after you're finished combining it, then you should place it aside to let it cool. In a larger bowl (like in a Bosch or KitchenAid mixer), combine the white flour and the cooled molasses mixture. Once those are combined, pour in the proofed yeast. (Before you can pour in the proofed yeast, you first need to proof the yeast. You do this by combining the warm water and the yeast and just a bit of sugar. Let it sit for a minute, and then it should start bubbling—it's proofed!)

Once the all of the ingredients are in the dough and the dough is made, Knead the dough well and once it is kneaded, place it in a greased bowl and let it rise. Punch it down one more time and then let it rise one more time. Mold the dough into round loaves (this recipe should make about twelve loaves), and place them in pie tins. Let the dough loaves rise until it's double. Make three cuts with a sharp knife across each loaf. Brush the top of each dough loaf with beaten egg, and then sprinkle caraway seeds on top if desired.

Bake the loaves at 350 degrees for fifty to sixty minutes, and start checking the loaves after they've been baking for about thirty to thirty-five minutes. This bread is better to under bake than to over bake. Watch it carefully while it is baking so you can bake the perfect bread! Now you are ready to enjoy a great variation on bread!
