  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T corn meal

  • Glaze

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 T water


Step 1

Combine warm water and dry yeast, allow to sit for 15 minutes so that yeast may 'bloom'.

Step 2

Add yogurt, wheat germ, rye flour, all-purpose flour and salt into the yeast mixture.

Step 3

Using a mixer (equipped with a dough hook) mix all ingredients until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Step 4

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.

Step 5

Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes, then knead again, this time kneading in the fennel seeds.

Step 6

Place dough in a well-oiled bowl, and allow to double in size.

Step 7

Cut dough into halves, form into loaves and cut an 'x' in the top of loaves.

Step 8

Bake on baking sheets that have been dusted with cornmeal at 350°for 45 minutes.

Step 9

Half way through the baking process, apply glaze to the surface of the loaves.

Step 10

Once loaves are golden-brown, remove from the oven and cool.
