Here's a rye bread that tastes like deli rye.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (2 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type AB (1 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (2 beneficials)
  • Type O (0 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (0 beneficials)

  • Baked Good

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 7 1/2 cups rye flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

How to make it:
  1. Mix all ingredients well.
  2. It will feel like a very thick batter and will not be like a wheat bread.
  3. Cover loosely with buttered plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  4. Punch down.
  5. Let rise again for best results.
  6. Put 1/2 of batter in each of 2 greased bread pans and pat flat with floured hands (or buttered).
  7. Cover with buttered plastic wrap and rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size.
  8. Slit top right down the middle with a very sharp knife. Bake in 350 degree oven 30-45 minutes.
  9. This was nothing like baking a wheat bread. The first rise took over an hour. The second about 50 minutes and the third still took 40 minutes.
  10. The end result is fantastic!
