Recipe is referenced from nordicfoodliving.com/. Traditional Rye Bread - just like it was made in the old days and like it is made today. Perfect for a healthy breakfast or lunch. This is a recipe for probably the most famous type of bread in Denmark. Also known as Ruisleipa in Finland. The recipe is based on a sour dough which takes about 5 days to make. The sour dough can be kept 'alive' and then it is faster to make the a rye bread.


  • 3/4 cup cracked rye kernels
    3/4 cup cracked wheat
    3/4 cup flax seed/linseeds
    3/4 cup sunflower seeds
    1 tbsp malt syrup (or dark syrup)
    1 1/2 cups Traditional
    sour dough

    3 1/4 cups water
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups rye flour
    1 tbsp salt
    2 tbsp gravy browning (can be omitted)


  • In a large bowl; Add the cracked rye kernels, cracked wheat, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, water, malt syrup and the sour dough. Let it all soak for minimum 8 hours. This can with advantage be done in the evening, so that you can continue the morning after.
    After about 8 hours; add the rest of the ingredients and let the rye bread dough rise for about 1.5 hours.
    Divide the dough into two portions and pour it into two normal bread pans. Cover the bread pans with some plastic wrap (or a damp dishtowel). Let the dough rise for about 1-2 hours or until the bread pan is full of dough.
    Bake the rye breads at 180 C (360 F) for about 1 hour.
    When done; remove the breads for the bread pans and let them cool off. When the breads are cooled off; keep them in an air tight container or a plastic bag.
