Limpa bread is sweetened rye bread with Swedish origins. This recipe uses a mix of herbs- fennel, caraway, and cumin- to create a complex flavor profile.

  1. Combine fennel seeds, cumin seeds, caraway seeds, cracked wheat, butter or margarine, molasses or barley malt, and orange zest in 1⅓ cup of boiling water. Soak for 1 hour. (This pre-soaks the cracked wheat and pre-releases the other flavors.)

  2. Add seed mixture along with baking soda, whole wheat or rye flour, high-gluten bread flour, dry yeast, gluten, and buttermilk powder into the pan of a bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
