Notes about this recipe

    Although Nigella describes this bread as dense and dark, it's actually rather light for rye bread (it's mixed with white bread flour), and it isn't sourdough like traditional Finnish ryes. I used medium rye flour and instant yeast. This bread was easy and fairly quick to make. Although it's not sourdough, it had a bit of tang from the rye. It made delicious avocado toast.
