How to make Swedish Limpu Bread:
  • Take a saucepan and boil water in it along with sugar, oil, salt, orange rind, caraway seeds, and fennel seeds, for about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool down a bit.
  • Take a bowl and mix 3 cups all-purpose flour and yeast in it properly.
  • Add in the rest of the flour (2½ cups) and blend well.
  • Now, stir this into the cooled mixture and blend it using a hand blender.
  • Add eggs to this mixture and blend for 1 more minute.
  • Transfer it to a bowl and add rye flour to make a stiff dough.
  • Take out the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes, so that it turns smooth.
  • Shape it into a ball and then place it in lightly greased bowl. Cover it with damp cloth and let it rise for about 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, divide it into half and make 2 balls. Let it rest for 10 more minutes and then shape it into 2 loaves.
  • Place it in un-greased loaf pans and brush it with vegetable oil.
  • Keep it for another 1 hour and then bake it at 400 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.
