Simple Rye-Wheat mix bread

Posted in : Bread on by : Detlef

Today I made a very simple but also yummy bread. This is a every day style bread in Germany and you can eat it with some savory or sweet toppings.


Simple Rye-Wheat mix bread
  • 150 g Rye flour
  • 150 g Water
  • 15 g Sour dough culture
For the dough:
  • 1 kg wheat plain flour
  • 1 kg rye flour (fine 1050 grade)
  • 1.2 kg water
  • 40 gr fresh yeast or 30 gr instant yeast
  • 30 gr salt
  • your pre dough
  1. For The Pre Dough mix all ingredients well and leave for 18 hours at room temperature. It should have doubled, be bubbly and soft then.
  2. For the final dough, put everything in a large mixer and mix for 13 minutes (start slow first and mix for 10 minutes on a high speed.)
  3. Now let the dough rest for 4 hours or longer. It should double in size in that time. Fold the dough once after 2-3 hours.
  4. Now divide the dough in 3 parts and put in some resting or fermenting forms. You can take any kind of form, just flour the form so the bread does not stick to it.
  5. After 90 minutes preheat your oven to the highest temperature.
  6. If you have a pizza stone or similar, put it in the oven before you switch it on.
  7. Now turn over the bread on a baking tray (use baking paper if you like, but careful at this temperature) or directly on your stone.
  8. Take some water and spray it in the hot oven, close the door and leave it for 5-10 minutes at the temperature.
  9. After 5-10 min reduce heat to 200 C and bake for another 40-45 minutes.
