Swedish Limpa

Been busy tonight baking bread. I decided to make Swedish Limpa. It is one of my favorites. I thought you might like to make some, too. It will be one of many recipes we’ll be trying in my Easter Baking cooking class at Wildwood in Mentor on Tuesday night.

Swedish Limpa

 6 ½ c. flour

2 c. rye flour

¼ c. brown sugar

2 t. salt

2-t. caraway seeds

2 t. grated orange peel

2 pkt. Active dry yeast

2 T. margarine, softened

2 2/3 c. hot water (125-130 degrees)


Set aside 1-cup flour. Mix remaining flours and other dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add margarine and water to flour mixture and stir to blend. Mix in enough additional flour to make a soft dough. Knead on a floured surface until smooth about 8-10 minutes. Place dough in oiled bowl turning to oil top. Cover and let rest in a draft free area until doubled, about 30 –40 minutes. Punch down. Divide dough in half and form into 2 balls. Place on greased baking sheet and cover until doubled in bulk, about 30 –40 minutes. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped lightly. Makes 2 loaves.

Note: you can also divide the dough in 2 9×5-inch greased loaf pans.
