Food Processor Buttermilk Rye Bread

This is a marvelous bread to slice thinly and serve with cheeses. The buttermilk gives a slight bite and the molasses adds a strong flavor.


Combine yeast, warm water, and sugar in a measuring cup. Let sit for 5 minutes. The yeast will begin to grow and will be full of small bubbles. This is called “proofing” the yeast.

In the work bowl of the food processor with the plastic blade, put the unbleached flour, rye flour, caraway seeds, and salt. Pulse 4 times to mix the ingredients.
Heat buttermilk, molasses and oil to 100°F.

With machine running, add proofed yeast mixture through the fee tube then the warmed buttermilk mixture as fast as the flour will absorb it. Stop the machine; remove the top and check the dough. If dough is too dry, pulse in water one tablespoon at a time; if it is too wet, pulse in flour one tablespoon at a time. The dough should form a soft ball that sits on top of the blade when the machine is running. The formation of the ball marks the beginning of the kneading process.

Turn the machine on and let the ball “knead” 60 seconds. DO NOT LET IT KNEAD ANY LONGER! If using the metal blade, only “knead” 45 seconds.
Put the dough in an oiled bowl, turning to grease the entire ball; cover with a towel and let rise for one hour.
Turn the dough out, divide in half. Roll each half into strands about 1" shorter than the pan. Place dough on well-grease baguette pans or baking sheets, cover and let rise 40 minutes.

About 10 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 425°F.
Just before baking, brush each baguette lightly with glaze (beaten egg and 1 tablespoon cold water) and slit diagonally about 1/4" deep.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the baguettes reaches 190°. Immediately remove from pans and cool on a rack to prevent crust from becoming soggy.

Makes 2 baguettes (13 slices each).
