Gimme That Marble Rye


I am trying to branch out in bread making skills. Rather than the usual supplies of All purpose flour, I have invested in some Rye Flours and Pumpernickel. One of my most favorite breads to order in a deli is a marble rye.The pretty swirls and texture make for excellent sandwiches.Marble Rye is an American style bread popular in the Jewish delicatessens. This bread varies from the European rye's which tend to be denser and undergo a completely different baking process. I used King Artur's website for the recipe. Rather than the deli rye flavor the recipe called for, I used their Heidelberg Rye Sour . The dough is pretty simple and is actually one dough. The darker part of the bread is the the addition of caramel color kneaded into the 2nd half of the dough and swirled together.My swirls didn't come out perfect but the it was just as good.A good 3 hour of prep and you have a loaf ready to go. In reading about rye, did you know Pumpernickel which is just a coarser rye flour means 'devils fart' if you break it down in German. Pumpen meaning flatulence and Nickle meaning devil or demon .Just thought I would share that with you all.

Here is the link to the recipe from the King Artur's site.This is also a submission for this months BYOB.

Another thing I always associate with marble rye is this classic scene from Seinfeld. Sorry for the Spanish subtitles , but this was the only clip I could find. Enjoy.

Fantastic Courtney! you did a great job! I need to get involved in BYOB. Maybe in the next couple of months.

This looks beautiful! I tried to make marble rye once, but I didn't have caramel coloring and tried to use cocoa instead. It didn't really look right, but still tasted good.

I have a whole appreciation of bread, making bread and those who make it...gimme that marble bread, NOW!

Hi Glamah16,

I must be the one who's standing around the chairs when the music stops. Everyone I know likes rye and 'devils fart'; except The U.

The next time I come to my former home, I will have to stop in your store, introduce myself and try the marble rye.

Once again, you've got my mouth watering.

BTW...The Seinfeld was an nice touch keeping with the theme.

Funny name "devil's fart" but the bread looks perfect and I would certainly love a sandwich with this bread.

MrOrph said...

Okay Courtney, I'll have a Reuben please.

Nicely done. I don't know that I don't just head over to the bakery though. I'm kinda lazy.

Maryann said...

Marble rye ALWAYS makes me crave Reubens. Always. Nice loaf.

The Duo Dishes said...

Devils fart. We learn something everyday. :) No matter what it means, it looks good.

Christina said...

Nothing beats Seinfeld!

That's a gorgeous loaf of bread, the outside and inside.

This is awesome Courtney! Way to branch out - your bread looks incredible!

Maggie said...

I love the oval shaped loaf pan and the scoring on the top. LOL at the pumpernickel translation!

Núria said...

I love it Courtney! He, he the name is funny :D. Do you know that here in Barcelona we have nun's farts? They are little little round cookies!

toni said...

I had a serious love affair with bread baking last year. Your recipe makes me want to get back together again with this amazing process.

And thanks for the translation of pumpernickel!!! And thanks, too, for the Seinfeld scene - love it!

I'm not ashamed to admit I'm intimidated by bread making - more because I'll eat it all. This looks pretty amazing Court - but all the farting and pumpen - I mean... I just don't know anymore :)

Deborah said...

I don't have rye very often - just one reason I should try this out!

Cynthia said...

Yeah, thanks for sharing that :)

Laurie said...

I too really need to try other flours and grains. My uncle this past week was tutoring me in the fine skill of grinding fresh berries and other whole grians. He said he picked up this beautiful antique mill. Not wanting to purchase berries and grains in bulk I might share in his investment. Great article!

Lori Lynn said...

Your bread looks fabulous Courtney! Love the "imperfect" swirls.

Chicago delis have great rye bread, I cannot find anything close to it here is SoCal. I miss that Jewish rye..

Haha. I never knew what pumpernickel meant. My nephews will get a big kick out of this because they liked to sing that song by Barney.

I have a bread, and it's called pumpernickel,
Yum, Yum, Pumpernickel, Pumpernickel bread,
Barney has a bread, and it's called Pumpernickel,
Yum, Yum, Pumpernickel, Pumpernickel bread,

Half Baked said...

Great looking bread. I'd probably try to steal it from you! LOL Who knew that's what pumpernickel meant!

Jo said...

That loaf is amazing....! Lovely!

Lisa said...

LOL! As I was reading your entry, I was just waiting for some Seinfeldian reference, and I was rewarded well! LOVE that episode and marble rye will forever be associated with it among Seinfeld junkies :0

That said, being an avid bread baker (I need to blog about it soon!), I'm awed by how gorgeous it came out. Perfect crumb and jusr begiing for some hot pastrami and mustard! Beautiful job!

Megan said...

I love marbled rye and you cant find it just any where here. Good job on branching out!

Shirley said...

Your bread looks wonderful..a beautiful loaf. That Seinfeld episode was hilarious. No matter how many times I watch it, I still crack up.

Laura said...

I love Seinfeld...how appropriate to your recipe! Looks tasty

Jude said...

Using rye and pumpernickel is definitely a big step up from regular flours. Love how high it turned out!

The Caked Crusader said...

What an attractive loaf - love the shape you've made it into! Love the marbling too.
I am in awe of your mastery of yeast!

kellypea said...

"Devil's fart?" OMG. My guys will love that one. And this bread really turned out beautifully! I'd probably fail at the swirly thing but would love to give this one a try. YUM!

Brilynn said...

I always think of the Seinfeld episode too when I see this!

Max mickle said...

My father is a huge fan of any type bread and I always try to bake one for him whenever we see my parents. He has yet to be fully blown away by any of the recipes i've tried. Simplicity is key, and yours looks perfect! Can't wait to try it.thank you for sharing your post.
