Onion-Rye Bread

Southern Living MARCH 1999

  • Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups bread flour, divided
  • 3/4 cup rye flour, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) envelope active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon water

Preparation

Sauté onion in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until golden. Set aside.

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon oil, milk, and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan; heat to 120° to 130°.

Stir together 3/4 cup bread flour, 1/4 cup rye flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Stir in milk mixture with a wooden spoon. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup rye flour, onion, and caraway seeds. Gradually stir in enough remaining bread flour to make a stiff dough.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth (about 8 minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.

Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Punch dough down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface; let stand 5 minutes. Shape into a loaf, and place in a greased 9- x 5-inch loafpan.

Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Stir together egg and 1 teaspoon water; brush over loaf.

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan immediately, and cool on a wire rack.
