Quick Swedish Rye Bread

I was leafing through the latest issue of Canadian House and Home and was delighted to read that Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford will be releasing a new book in the fall called, Home Made: Sweet and Savory Baking from Around the World! Their other books, Seductions of Rice, Flatbreads and Flavours and Hot Sour Salty Sweet, are among my favourite cookbooks.

I tried out their recipe for Quick Swedish Rye Bread. It's incredibly easy to make and has a fine, cakelike texture. The bread is moist and holds up well to slicing thinly. I decreased the cumin to 1/3 of the recipe and might substitute caraway seeds next time.
