2 ¼ cups whole rye (pumpernickel) ﬂour
1 cup honey
⅓ cup ground almonds
1 tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp cinnamon
Grated rind of 1 lemon
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix the rye ﬂour and honey together and let stand overnight.
- Add spices and other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Knead the dough for about 5 minutes then spread batter into a greased loaf pan (about 8 ½” x 4 ½”).
- Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool thoroughly on a cooling rack.
You will be tempted to enjoy this immediately, but the ﬂavor improves if you can restrain yourself and wait a day or two.
