Even when toasted and slathered with butter, it's delicious. The intense, but not overpowering flavor comes from molasses, powdered cocoa, caraway seeds and just enough rye flour to realize it is it a rye bread. The original recipe comes from a href="http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/georgeslightryebread/" target="blank"Simply Recipes/a which I have halved and adapted to process on the dough cycle of my bread machine. My bread machine does a great job of kneading and is a great time saver when preparing dough. That being said, I never use the bake cycle on the machine as I like to form the loaves and bake them in a conventional oven.br /br /Rye flour is dense and while high in bran and soluble fiber, it is low in gluten so is often mixed with a wheat flour to ensure a good rise. It has a slightly sour taste so works well for dark breads and sourdough breads. There are light, medium and dark rye flours, the color dependent upon how much of the bran has been removed in the milling process. Rye flour is usually healthier than wheat flour as the bran and the germ have been preserved in the milling process.br /br /The a href="http://cafelynnylu.blogspot.com/2013/10/estonia-o-is-for-orzotto-abbecedario.html" target="blank"culinary journey through Estonia/a continues with this homemade rye bread as a contribution. Rye bread is a basic fundamental food in Estonia as well as Lithuania and Latvia. It is eaten at nearly every meal. Traditionally in Lithuania, if a piece should fall to the ground, it is picked up and kissed before being eaten. /divbr /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-NMM9TBdATTE/UnViuyFc8YI/AAAAAAAALFE/3DWpegr2Vzc/s1600/RyeBreadRadLab.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-NMM9TBdATTE/UnViuyFc8YI/AAAAAAAALFE/3DWpegr2Vzc/s640/RyeBreadRadLab.jpg" width="640" //a/div/divdiva href=""img alt="Pin It" class="aligncenter" src="http://www.clickinmoms.com/cmprodaily/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/pinit.jpg" //a/divbr /Homemade Light Rye Breadbr /Bread Machinebr /br /1 package bread machine yeastbr /1-1/2 cups warm waterbr /1/3 cup molassesbr /3 cups bread flourbr /1 cup light rye flourbr /1/2 teaspoon saltbr /2 tablespoons vegetable oilbr /2 tablespoons cocoa powderbr /1 tablespoon caraway  seedbr /br /div style="text-align: justify;"Add the ingredients to your bread pan according to the manufacturer's instructions for your machine.
