    WendyinGermany's Note:

    I found this recipe on a German web site. It was really good and fairly quick to make. Great recipe for those of you who like "European" breads. Preparation time does not include the time it takes for the bread to rise (about 90 minutes).

      This is a very good recipe! I use to buy "European Rye" made with sourdough starter from a small local market that carried a bakery bread from a place in Macedonia, OH. called Reineker's Bakery. But the store shut down. I had to make some adjustments in measurements because both white and rye flours vary greatly from brand to brand. So I had to increase the white flour to equal the amount of rye flour and I reduced the amount of water from 400 ml to about 275 ml. Any more and my dough became much to soft to hold it's shape. But once I did that I had an excellent dough to work with. I am also using a sourdough starter(Biga)that came with a Ciabatta bread recipe because this starter only takes 12 hours to ripen for bread making and can be kept up to a week under refridgeration with out feeding. This has a nice texture and good rye flavor. Thanks for sharing this WendyinGermany.
