One of the August breads for Mellow Bakers. The shine is from a light wash of cooked cornflour (cornstarch) on the loaves while they are still hot. I never know what makes these breads so orangey in colour, is it the caraway seeds? I wonder who would know the answer… This bread is a sort of compromise between a light rye and a serious rye. It’s not my favourite, but it is still a good bread.
Other Mellow Bakers who have made this bread so far are:
Steve at Burntloafer
Ulrike at Ostwestwind
Lutz with a very lovely scoring pattern here
There’s a version of this recipe here if it’s a recipe you are looking for.
