Directions

  1. Boil water, sugar, oil, salt, orange rind, caraway seeds, and fennel seeds in a saucepan for 3 minutes. Cool until warm
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together 3 cups flour and yeast. Stir in cooled orange rind mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Blend in eggs. Add 1 cup flour, and beat 1 minute on medium speed. Add rye flour and enough additional white flour to make a stiff dough.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes, or until smooth and satiny. Shape into a ball. Place in lightly greased bowl, turning to grease the surface. Cover with a damp cloth, and place in a warm spot. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled.
  4. Punch dough down, and divide in half. Shape into 2 balls. Let rest for 10 min. Shape into 2 loaves, and place into ungreased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Brush with oil. Allow to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes, or until done.

Being predominantly Swedish by nationality, this is my favorite bread. My grandmother used to make this often (it was best hot from the oven). My recipe that I have used for several years is almost identical to this one. Occasionally, I skip the orange zest and spices--then it is exactly like my grandmother's, who came from Sweden in her teens.

I thought bf would love this--I was sure he liked rye. He's not so sure about this one. Says it's "weird". Why, I don't know. So, I say to him, "I made it for you. I thought you liked rye". Him: "I do". So there you have it. Bf, who likes rye, thinks this is a weird bread, goodness knows why. It tastes like a light rye bread to me. Nothing weird about it in my opinion. Men. Anyway, thanks for the recipe! We have a weird household--don't worry so much about bf and his weirdness. ;o)
