40 Percent Caraway Rye

Two loaves of 40% caraway rye

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.
