Let me thank all participants for the 3rd round of bread baking day . The theme was bread only leavened with sourdough, preferably from rye. It might be that my condition only leavened with sourdough wasn’t clear enough, so we have two kinds of participants: Those who trusted in the leavening power of their sourdoughs and met the conditions, and those, who didn’t and added yeast true to the motto: Participation is everything! And they are right.
I sorted the entries in the order of their arrival and leavening.
|KochSchlampe at Kochen für Schlampen baked a Roggensauer mit scharfer Kruste. She made the sourdough herself from scratch.
Location: Berlin, Germany
|KarLa from Chaosküche made her first Pure Rye Sourdough Bread from self-made sourdough. She enjoys the great feeling to know exactly what is in her bread: nothing but rye meal, water, salt and sugar.
Location: Heidelberg, Germany
|Sue from Coffee & Cornbread had no rye flour on hand but she only leavened her Dilly O‘ Sourdough Rolls with her new sourdough starter.
Location: Virginia, USA
|Susan from Wild Yeast overcame her fear of rye and presents us a delicious looking Rye and Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread
Location: California, USA
|Zainab over at Arabic Bites baked her first bread with starter and rye. The sourdough dates anise bread came out great!
Location: JUBAIL INDL CITY , Saudi Arabia
|Karen blogs at bread/pain03.06.18** and participated with a sourdough rye bread with raisins and walnuts03.06.18**. Unfortunately she doesn’t tell us which Hamelman recipe she used.
Location: Ontario, Canada
|Gaby from CrockyBlog is the only one in her family who loved the Carrot Sunflower Seed Bread. Her career as a sourdough baker ends just in the beginning.
Location: Rhede, Germany
|Andre from Eat More Bread03.06.18** keeps the recipe for the Sour 100% Rye Bread03.06.18*+ secret. But I think it’s the one from Page 31.
|Zorra, the great mind behind bbd and word bread day, struggled with her hyperactive starter she made from scratch. She was not 100 % satisfied with the Rustic bread with hyperactive grape-rye-sourdough, but she’ll give the recipe a second try.
Location: Andalucia, Spain
|Manuela at Baking History – A Taste for the Past baked a Rye Bread I, similar to traditional “Jewish Rye”, with a moist crumb and thin crust. Ideal for sandwiches.
Location: United States
|The first submission from Petra aka Cascabel at Chili und Ciabatta is a 100% Rye Sourdough Bread. She used a recipe from Mr. Fahrenkamp, the bread could be enjoyed with cheese, but also with a sweet topping like honey or her grape maracuja jam.
Location: Geiersthal, Germany
|Samania over at Couverts et Decouvertes was attracted by the ingredients rye flour and leaven. She turned it to German black bread (http://couvertsamania.canalblog.com/archives/2007/08/31/5932028.html now defunc7) which is suitable for hearty and sweet spreads.
|Tatter writes the The Bread Chronicle. She bakes the dark and sweet Borodinsky Bread she felled long years ago.The name refers to a Russian general’s wife, who baked loaves of bread for the soldiers to inspire them before the Battle of Borodino (1812).
Location: United Kingdom
|Elizabeth at OUR kitchen adapted her recipe for caraway rye and used her newly captured wild starter instead of yeast. She has never been a big fan of really sour sourdough or rye breads but the Wild Caraway Seed Bread is perfect for her taste.
Location: Toronto, Canada
|The second submission from Petra – the bread queen – is a Saftiges Sauerteigbrot mit Roggenschrotanteil. She used two sourdoughs with different hydrations and baked her own Lower Bavarian Farmer’s Bread.
Location: Geiersthal, Germany
|Katja from Kaffeebohne proved herself that she is a real sourdough baker without adding yeast to the dough. She submitted Roggensauerteigbrot mit Kernen
Location: Nauheim, Germany
|At least my own entry. I baked a Seeded Rye Bread. The starter was already used after 6 hours of refreshment. This maximises the yeast activity and reduces the acidity of the dough. A mildly soured bread with lots of seeds to bite.
Location: Northern Germany
|Carolyn from 18thC Cuisine baked a Pain de Seigle Sisteron
|Elena from Experiments was not experienced in handling wet rye doughs, but she managed to end with a Sourdough Rye with Flaxseeds (http://e-xperiments.com/files/sourdoughryeflax01.php now defunct)
|Eva from sweet sins returned to the Land of the Breads and won’t spend time with bread baking. She wanted to contribute something, so she shares the recipe for Rye Bread with Sunflower Seeds and Wheat Bread with Sesame Seeds with us. These recipes are helpful for weak or underdeveloped sourdough cultures.
|Babs at Quergedacht and Astrid from Paulchens foodBLog?! 22.02.2021 ** baked together a Bread with rye sourdough & whole grain spelt 22.02.2021 **. After 20 hours their sourdough didn’t look very active and they helped the bread to rise with yeast.
Location: Vienna, Austria
|Arfi from Homemades 21.09.2018** participates with aRussian Rye Bread 21.09.2018**. She enjoyed it with a hearty minestrone.
Location: Tuakau, New Zealand
|Barbara at Barbaras Spielwiese was scared about Zorra’s exploding starter. She used tamed (dried) sourdough for her first Rye Bread with Sourdough and gained some experience in bread baking.
|Although Ilka and Ulli from RezkonvSuite aren’t fond of dark rye breads and Ilka had to activate her sourdough from the freezer she insisted to participate with the Alsace Loaf with Rye. Ilka finds the result very tasty, I can approve that!

Just great! I don’t know which one I should bake first. Thank you – Ulirke- for the roundup and thanks to all participants!
Wow, what an impressive collection of bread recipes. When I was a little girl, my grandma Denny always made the best sourdough bread. And she had REAL butter at her house (my family always had margarine, ick.)
Wow, that was fast getting the roundup posted. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what all the others baked.
Thyme for Cooking
Makes me want to start baking bread again! Maybe after the garden stops and I’m done canning/bottling/pickling…
They all look wonderful!~
a wonderful collection of beautiful breads! As a rye bread enthusiast I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s contribution! Thanks again to Ulrike and Zorra!!
Bin begeistert, da ich mich jetzt auch mal an das Brotbacken machen werde, mit neuer Küchenmaschine….Werde sicherlich auf Deinen Expertenrat zurückkommen, wenn ich darf…….
Natürlich darfst du!
Great round-up! I wanted to participate, but my sourdough wasn’t ready in time…
shame i couldn’t participate, especially since you started me on the baking… but my soursughs had to stay behind when i left for austria. picking them up from the „babysitter“ tomorrow, then i’ll be trying some of these great recipes!
100% Sour Rye Bread
Hiya, Sorry I couldn’t post the recipe because I read the front page of Dan Lepard’s Handmade Loaf book and it said the pages are not to be reproduced without his publisher’s consent. But you are right. Page 3 it is on Dan Lepard’s Handmade Loaf. He’s a genius.
Secondly, I just wanna say ‚Wow!‘ to all these rye breads for bbd #3. it’s going to take me a week to check them all out! Great job guys and gals.
