Swedish Limpa Bread -Rye Bread לחם לימפה- שיפון שוודי

His Name is Limpa , and He is Swedish ..
Yes, this is a traditional ( slightly sweet) Swedish rye bread.
Two brown and long loafs, soft inside and outside, good for any kind of spreading, and realy very very good.
The original recipe sais to add more sugar (1/2 cup), we have no oranges yet , so I didn't add the peel .In some Limpa Bread recipes you'll find additional of gluten flour - the rye flour is poor of gluten, but not in this recipe. The dough rises very nicely , for 1 1/2 hours - the first rise + another 1 1/4 hours after shaping.Very easy to make , and a surprising flavor !
