I'm going to make this.. Still have some bread left from the Gluten-free/Sugar-free cookbook..Made with flaxseed meal/almond flour..But, it needed to bake for 70 minutes.


This is going to be my next bread..

Does it have a moist texture or is it a little dry like real bread..?

It's kind of moist, Carolyn. Some kinds of real German rye bread are dense and moist like that. Those were my favorite kinds. There was this wonderful sourdough rye bread that my Grandma always bought that wasn't dark like this but it did have the same moist consistency. The brand was called Burkhardt and it was sold in the Detroit area where we used to live. I think it may have been baked in Canada.

Barb: I'm confused on the cutting..duh..Do you just cut it like regular bread OR
do you cut each half lengthwise into 5 pieces...??/

I thought it might be confusing. When you cut it in half if you
look it would be a small slice. Turn the bread upwards and you
will see that you can cut it into more regular slices.
I got 5 each side but Linda Sue got many more than I did.

I wasn't sure about the slicing method either so I just did it the traditional way. What I thought that you were saying, Barbo, was to cut the loaf in half vertically through the middle (the short way, not the long way) and then slice the bread vertically the opposite way from the normal way. However, when I went to try that, I found that the slices would come out exactly the same size as they'd be slicing it the traditional way so I didn't do it.

Are you saying to slice the bread horizontally rather than vertically? That's the only way that I can think of that would result in larger slices.

In any case, it didn't matter to me what size the slices were since I could just eat as many as I needed to equal the same amount of bread. If I were to use this bread for a sandwich, two thin regular slices would be plenty for me and would make a cute little sandwich.

Gosh, I had this for my 3 meals today..LOL..

Linda Sue: I did cut it half the short way, then sliced off some slices the long way so they were the size of real bread.. It worked out great and there was more room for my chicken or egg salad..

Maybe I used a smaller loaf pan. Mine would have come out exactly the same size as cutting them the usual way.

Mine is closer to 8x4" so the slices are 4 inches across either way.

I wish I could take pictures

and post them so that you could see what I mean by cutting
the bread in half. Stand it on end. You then can see a regular
slice. Cut each half into 5-6 slices. My lovely friend is going
to teach me how to use the camera and post pictures.
I feel I'm not too old to learn a new trick. After all we are
eating onion/rye bread....and that's a new thing for me.

Bought some more nitrate and nitrite free pastrami today
at Trader Joe's. Now I need to make a fresh loaf.
I thought to try Peggy's suggestion and use a bit of black
cold coffee in the batter. Will let you know what that does
for the bread.

Makes me feel happy that you all are enjoying this new
recipe.

It sounds like you're slicing the loaf horizontally instead of vertically, Barbo. I will try some different ways of slicing my next loaf but I can't make another one until I make a run to Trader Joe's for more almond meal. I suppose that I could make a loaf using blanched almond flour and see how it turns out. It should taste the same, right?

Slicing - I believe what Barbo is saying: turn the loaf out and cut it across the short way from top to bottom, simply cutting the loaf in half; now turn both halves up onto the CUT portions, so they're tall now - then cut from top to bottom starting with the crusty part and working towards what was once the bottom of the pan. You'll get about 4" square pieces that way. How many you get will be somewhat a product of how tall your loaf rose up in the pan.

I'm gonna make this so when it's ready to cut, I'll take some pics!

I think the slicing method is the same as in the Almond Butter Bread thread showing the slicing method in posts #1 complete sandwich; #3 whole loaf and #5 half loaf and slices

Boy Barbo - this bread is SO GOOD!

The only tweak I made was to add a teaspoon of instant coffee powder to the batter. I used rice bran oil because I like it. Otherwise it's pretty much as you wrote it!

Here are the slicing pics, as promised. I DID make a VERY thin slice off each end just so it was easier to cut once stood up - I used my electric knife to slice it.

The whole loaf:



Loaf cut in half in the middle:



Now stand the 2 halves up on the edge you just cut (and you can see here where I cut that really thin slice off the ends, just to square them up):



And slice down, starting with the top crust piece and working back to what was formerly the bottom:



I got 10 slices this way.

Naw it needs the unblanced flour.

Oh MAN! DH and I just had sandwiches - homesmoked pastrami, Jarlsberg cheese, plenty of mustard, and lightly-toasted onion-rye bread -

DH said "This is VFG!" and I'll let you all figure that out!

Interesting. This is the first time I remember hearing of a baking recipe needing (or even preferring) unblanched almond flour.
