Here’s a traditional Russian rye bread that’s sweetened lightly with dried cranberries. This is mixed in the bread machine, then baked in the oven.
You can add nigella (black caraway) seeds to this bread to make it even tastier.

Makes 16 servings
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups rye flour
2 tablespoons honey (dark)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons fast rising yeast
1 1/4 cups warm water

1/2 tablespoon nigella (black caraway) seeds (optional)
1. Place all ingredients (except the seeds and cranberries) in the bread machine pan (in the order suggested by the manufacturer).

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
