Carolyn's Bread (Bread Machine) Recipe

Carolyn's Bread (Bread Machine) Recipe 
with Joan's Variation

I made a really nice bread yesterday. I used the French bread setting.

1-1/2 tsp yeast
1-1/4 cups water
3 cups bread flour
3/4 cups rye flour
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt

Very crusty and made great toast the next day.

You might need more yeast, for higher altitude. I usually don't need more than 1-1/2 tsp. It is just under a 2 lb loaf. I find the 2 lb loaves rise a wee bit too high in the machine.

Rye flour added to a bread inhibits staleness (just read this).


I popped Carolyn's bread into bread machine this morning, and added:

2-1/2 tsp yeast*
2 tbsp gluten flour
1 more tbsp water

*This amount is changed to reflect the very low altitude from Carolyn's recipe. Joan is at the altitude of 2600 feet. 1000' and above should use the higher amount, or experiment.
