Molasses Rye Bread

    3 hours 15 minutes

    A lovely rye bread recipe, very easy in the bread machine. A woman in my class wanted to make some bread for her husband who was allergic to wheat. She called me the next day to report it was very good.

    Finally! I've been searching for a 100% rye bread recipe that didn't turn out like a brick, and this is it! Very moist and tender. I didn't have lecithin, so I just used an extra egg white. Turned out GREAT!  -  27 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Tried the recipes in my bread machine but was very sceptical that it would work. When it was finished it was only half way up the side of the pan and figured that my first assumption was right and that this was another loaf for relegated as fit only for making breadcrumbs. But when I had sliced the loaf to make crumbs the texture was similar to other store bought 100% rye bread, and it surprisingly turned out to a very tasty loaf, particularly toasted. I will make it again as that my wife prefers to eat gluten free and this loaf is tasty and economical.  -  08 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a wonderful bread... that tastes like real bread. I didn't have lecithin so I substituted extra vegetable oil in its place.. therefore I used 2 2/3 tbs. It turned out perfectly. This is going to become a staple in my wheat-free home! Also this was my first time using my new breadmaker so I found the cook time of 31 minutes as listed a little confusing. I however followed my breadmaker's setting for a 1.5lb loaf on Normal cycle (with a bake time of just under three hours).  -  19 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
