“This popular bread is used in Denmark for open face sandwiches; must be sliced about an inch thick. It can be made without the wheat flour; the wheat flour helps the loaf rise more quickly.” - by KNUDR
Original recipe yields 1 loaf
- In a large bowl, combine 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 cup rye flour. Cover batter with a damp cloth, and place in a warm, draft-free spot.
- In the evening, mix in 1 teaspoon yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 cup warm water, and 1 cup rye flour. Cover again, and set aside overnight.
- In the morning, mix in 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon kosher salt, and 1 cup warm water. Gradually mix in 2 cups rye flour and 1 cup of all-purpose flour (if using). When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes. Form into a loaf, and place on a baking sheet. Allow to rise for about 40 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

"This bread is a very good rye bread, and my husband gave the taste a 5, but they don't tell you to add enough flour. I added 2 more cups of all purpose flour, and that still wasn't enough, but I was ..." See moretired and swollen and cranky (95 degree weather while 8 months pregnant will do that) so I said oh well and threw it on the pan in the best loaf shape i could get it and figured it was a lost cause. If you are going to put the dough in a 9x5 loaf pan ...or 9x7 or what ever size the 9 inch loaf pan is, it will make 2 loafs instead of 1. Anyway, will make this again, but will make sure I add more flour."
