- 1 tbsp yeast
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup rye flour
Dissolve yeast in the sugar and a bit of the buttermilk. Blend flours and salt together.
Add remaining milk to yeast mixture. Add butter. Mix in flour.
Knead by machine for about 8 minutes or by hand for 10 – until dough is smooth.
Roll into a ball and proof until double in size – about an hour.
On a lightly floured board, form dough into a loaf and place into a well-greased standard bread pan.
Lightly cover and proof, again, until double in size.
Bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for about 35 minutes – until top is nicely browned.
Immediately remove from pan and cool before slicing.
