  • 500g whole grain rye flour
  • 250g whole grain wheat flour
  • 20g fresh yeast (or 7g dry yeast)
  • 600ml lukewarm water
  • 10g salt
  • 1 tbsp syrup or molasses (optional, for added sweetness)
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds (optional, for extra flavor)


1- In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. Let it sit for a few minutes until frothy.

2- Add the salt and syrup/molasses to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.

3- Gradually add the whole grain rye flour and whole grain wheat flour to the mixture, stirring continuously until a sticky dough forms.

4- If using caraway seeds, add them to the dough and knead until they are evenly distributed.

5- Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, or until it has doubled in size.

6- Preheat your oven to 220°C (425°F). Place a baking stone or baking sheet in the oven to preheat.

7- Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release any air bubbles, then shape it into one or two round loaves.

8- Place the loaves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Let them rise for another 30-60 minutes.

9- Before baking, you can sprinkle some additional caraway seeds on top of the loaves for decoration, if desired.

10- Bake the loaves in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until they are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

11- Remove the loaves from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack before slicing.

Once cooled, your Finnish Ruisleipä is ready to be enjoyed with butter and cheese or cold cuts, just like they do in Finland. This hearty bread is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack any time of the day.
