A dark Pumpernickel style loaf with heavy structure and a low rise. Great with tasty cheese (herring anyone?). A traditional Northern European style Rye. Rye and Rye Meal (gluten added) and wheat flour for volume.
For best results: bake in a tin in your oven.
If baked in a breadmaker - chances are that you'll end up with a 'scraggy' top. To avoid this, remove the dough after the final knead, ball it up and put back in the tin without the pedal.
Note: This is a HEAVY dough, so you'll need a good quality breadmaker, or some strong hands to knead the dough!

Steam Tip: To create steam, have an (old) skillet or fry pan pre-heated in the oven. Once the dough is placed in the oven, pour 1/3 cup hot water on the hot skillet. Bake for 10 minutes in the steam. You may need to repeat this process of adding water to maintain the steam. Vent the oven by opening the door for 5 seconds to allow the steam to escape. Then reduce temperature to 200ºC and bake for a further 25-35 minutes.
