Grandma’s Top-Secret Cook-Book Recipe: Baking Party Rye Bread

For a long time to come, September 2022 will likely stick in my mind. I plan to surprise my grandmother with her own top-secret recipe for party rye bread this weekend when she stays with us. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone, but I actually got this fantastically tasty recipe by stealing it from my grandmother’s cookbook.

You won’t believe how many delicious dishes your grandma can make with just a few basic ingredients. Check out this article for the traditional party bread recipe you can rely on for the lifelong love of this dish.

What Is Party Rye Bread?

Party rye bread is a coarse-textured, dark, rugged bread made from crushed (ground) whole rye kernels without wheat flour. However, mixing rye flour with wheat flour makes the bread more textured and colored.
Incredibly, research suggests that eating party rye bread as a snack may have positive effects on your health, such as a reduced body fat percentage, less inflammation, more stable blood sugar levels, and improved cardiovascular and digestive function.

How to Make Party Rye Bread? 

The recipe calls for pumpernickel flour, but rye flour is also available at most grocery stores, so substitute any kind you have on hand.


First, you need all these ingredients to make a piece of bread (2-3 person serving – 458 calories).

  1. In the range of 2.5-3 cups of all-purpose flour
  2. 1/3 of a cup of sugar
  3. Two and a half cups of regular rye flour
  4. Fennel seed, 2 tablespoons
  5. Add the contents of 2 packages of Fleischmann’s RapidRise Instant Yeast.
  6. One Tablespoon of Orange Peel grated
  7. Beer, around 1 cup’s worth
  8. A fourth of a cup of molasses, light
  9. 1/2 of a cup of water
  10. Molasses Glaze
  11. Water, 2 Tablespoons
  12. Use 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine.
  13. 2-tablespoons of molasses
  14. Freshly shredded orange peel, one tablespoon
  15. Two and a half tablespoons of salt


Step 1

Mix 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup rye flour, sugar, active dry yeast, salt, orange peel, and fennel seeds in a large bowl. Make a sauce by simmering the beer, water, molasses, and butter until it is warm (120° to 130°F). Stir the flour into the mixture.

Step 2

Scrape the bowl as needed while beating at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add and mix the flour to form a smooth mixture. Squeeze the mixture for eight to ten minutes on a floured surface. Make it smooth and elastic. For a more relaxing experience, cover and wait 10 minutes.

Step 3

Ensure that the dough is evenly divided by cutting it into quarters. An oval form, 10 inches in length and 6 inches in width, will do. Wrap them tightly like a jelly roll, starting from the long side and ending with a pinched seam.

Step 4

Spread on pans that have been greased with butter. Wrap the dough and let it rise in a warm place without drafts for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.

Step 5

Make three alternate diagonal cuts over the top of each piece using a sharp knife. To make molasses glaze, combine equal parts of molasses and water in a small bowl and swirl until smooth.

Step 6

Brush the loaves with a molasses glaze. Put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, then take it out and brush it again with the molasses glaze. Keep it in the oven for ten minutes. After baking, remove the loaves and glaze them with the molasses mixture.

Ready To Serve 

Place on cooling racks made of metal. The light bread you ordered is ready. You might complement your tea with some party rye bread of a smaller size.
