Light Rye Bread - Loaves #3

My first bread with the crippled mixer. I was so happy when I made this. My first pullman loaf!

The bread is not light, but kind of heavy, like how rye bread should be. But the texture is tender and spongy, with a bouncy mouth feel. I don't know how to describe it the best, but it's quite unique. This recipe is inspired from KitchenAid's cookbook, but I twisted it as I didn't have quite a few of the ingredients.

I actually baked this two days before I gave birth to Reuben. Haha, so you can guess how long  ago this bread was. On that beautiful early morning, I reheated the bread by steaming,spread some butter and kaya, and packed it for the hospital. It was for my hubby, just in case he felt hungry. But, we didn't eat it.

After Reuben was born, my mother and brother came to visit me at the hospital. My brother was very hungry and asked me if I have food, LOL. I asked him, if he wants my morning bread. He liked it a lot, and the texture was well loved by my mom  too. Even though I steamed it in the morning, it stayed soft until the night. Mom asked me to bake her a loaf when I get better.

Actually this bread stays soft quite long, and when it starts to harden, it really does, but it takes a long while. The day I baked this bread, I sliced it and prepared 2 slices for  my husband to try. It was left on the table for a few hours, and  the bread didn't dry up or form a crust. I was surprised. The bread stayed soft for around  36 hours. But after that even though it has hardened, it will turn soft again when you steam it. And the steamed softness stays soft for many hours ... like how it was in the hospital.

100gm brown sugar
8gm salt
30gm butter
435gm water
3tsp instant yeast
240gm rye flour

4. Divide dough into 3 pieces. Lightly flour them, roll them flat and roll it up again.
5. Place dough into buttered pan and let it proof for 1 hour until 80% full in tin. Cover with lid.
6. Bake in preheated oven at 160(fan)/180C for 40-45 minutes. (Mine is always done by 30)

And this was the loaf for my mom, baked in the 3rd week of my confinement :)


  1. Looks good, which reminds me that I have not use my pullman tin for the longest time!

  2. Hah! Hah! Your brother is very cute. Sis can can be counted on to have food even after delivering baby :) I like your bread. Nanti 2014 must cuba buat roti.

  3. Hi Wendy,

    I'm new to baking. All your baked goods inspire me to bake more. Can you tell me where to source the bread tin? I can't seem to see any here in KL.

    Thank you,


  4. Jenny,
    Supermarkets won't have them. You can easily get them from shops that sell baking ingredients.
    If you're from Puchong, go to Bake with Yen, Taman Megah also have a branch. If not any other shops near you.

  5. Hi Wendy, may I know how big is your Pullman tin?

  6. Hi Wendy, may I know how big is your Pullman tin?

    I's 4.5 inch X11 inches, around that
