How to Make Country Bread with Raisins

  1. In a large bowl, add 1 cup of whole-wheat flour, 1 cup of rye flour, yeast, salt, and give it a mix.
  2. In a saucepan, heat water, ½ cup of oil, molasses and honey to 120-130 degrees F. Once it reaches the temperature, add it to the dry ingredients, and mix until everything has moistened.
  3. Now, you can add the remaining whole-wheat flour along with the rye flour. If need be, add all-purpose flour so it can be a medium stiff dough.
  4. Dump the flour on a lightly flour surface and sprinkle with raisins. Knead it until it becomes smooth, this will take 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. With the remaining oil, grease a large bowl and put the dough into it. Grease the dough on all sides and cover. Keep it in a warm room so it can double in size, this takes 1 ½ hours
  6. When it has risen, punch it a few times and place on a floured surface again. Divide the dough in 4 pieces and make a ball. Place the dough 4-inches apart on 2 baking sheets and spray with cooking spray. Let it rise again until it doubles.
  7. Bake it at 325 degrees F until it is golden brown.
