    Well, as you can see from the picture I have added this was a disaster!!!!!!! Not quite sure what went wrong?? Won't be making again, as Middle just completely fell out of loaf!  -  30 Sep 2014


    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 US | 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 US | Canada)
