German Coarse Rye Bread


250g ( 8 oz) all purpose flour

125g (4 1/3 oz) coarse bruised wheat grain

250g ( 8 oz) coarse bruised rye grain

125g (4 1/3 oz) sunflower kernels

liter (19 oz) buttermilk

200g (7 oz) molasses

1 tbsp salt
1 pkg dry yeast

The preparation time for this breaed is only about 10 min, .... but the baking time is 4 hours. But this should not keep you from trying, it's worth the wait! It' s a mouth watering authentic german dark whole grain bread.

In a large bowl combine the bruised grains and the flour. Add salt, sunflower kernels and the dry yeast. 1 pkg. dry yeast equals tbsp of dry yeast. Mix well. Now add the molasse syrup and the buttermilk and knead well until very soft dough result. The dough appears almost fluid. Thoroughly grease a baking tin and sprinkle with flour. Pour in the dough. Put it into the cold oven, set the rack on the middle rung. Bake for about 3 hours at 330 F. After 2 hours baking time cover the bread with parchment paper or aluminum foil. After 3 hours turn off the heat and let the bread cool down in the oven for another hour. Put the bread on a wire rack and remove the tin. To check if the bread is done knock on the bottom, if it sounds hollow, its done. Let cool completely on wire rack. Keep the bread in a plastic bag, stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
Enjoy with butter, cheese or very thin sliced prosciutto.
