Made in bread maker for laziness. I followed the instructions. Put it on to bake and lifted out a dense, sunken doughy loaf. Anyone here made rye bread successfully have and tips to offer? Could alternatively use the kitchen aid.

In my experience you really need to mix wheat in to the dough if you are going to get any rise. This is because Rye gluten does not form in quite the same way as wheat gluten, and does not, therefore, hold the structure of the crumb in the same way.

I have made a rye/spelt loaf really successfully in my bread maker, just the one in the panasonic book that comes with it.

It is always very dense though, that is the grain. Have you got a second dough hook for rye flour - I got one with mine.

I have a KA too and prefer the rye/spelt from the bread maker to the same grain mix in the oven (odd!).

I expected dense but this turned to dough when the crumb was pressed. Lavendersun I was using a Panasonic too. Do you mean the hook in the attached pic? It's the one I used.

Yes, that is the one OP. I just use the Rye and Spelt recipe under section 13 in my book and cook it on menu 13. It has yoghurt in it.
