Roggenbrot (Sourdough Rye)




  • 2 cups sourdough starter
  • 1 cup bread flour


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
  • 2 cups rye flour
  • Water as needed


  1. Knead the sponge ingredients for 5 minutes; allow to sit for 8 hours or longer.
  2. Add the dough ingredients and select the basic, white or grain cycle and press start.
  3. This is a heavy dough that rises slowly and needs a relatively long rise, such as a last rise of 2 hours or more. This means you will need a programmable machine or you can prepare it on the dough cycle and then shape and allow to rise in a regular pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F until done. The interior should read 200 degrees F when a thermometer is inserted in the center.
