Thanks to these unbelievable benefits, it's no surprise that Danish rye bread baking can be a very lucrative product in today's global economy. Take top baker, Jesper Figgé Thomsen, for example. He has peddled his award-winning Danish rye bread throughout Europe to spread its glory in Barcelona, Spain. There, he spends his days baking bread for his unworthy flatmates and topping slices with healthy additions.


His recipe is famous for using a secret ingredient that we, at the The Limelight News, are ecstatic to reveal to the world for the first time in history. Keep reading to find out what it is!

Among Thomsen's many expert tips and tricks, his number one statement of advice for baking technique is, "What you really want to do is: get in there."


Here is the award-winning recipe. Results may vary.


Add the following ingredients, no measurements, just do it, and mix it all up:

  • Sourdough starter

  • Fresh yeast

  • Lots of types of flour

  • Rye grains (soaked)

  • Rolled oats

  • Lots of types of seeds

  • Extra virgin olive oil

  • Celtic sea salt

Mix the dough, let it rise, bake it, turn the form upside-down for a little while, and enjoy!


Now that you know the top secret ingredient, it makes sense that in some photos, the bread has an almost green effect, due to the essence of the algae superfood.


This bread may take decades for common people, like you, to master. So be patient with yourself and do not expect that your very first loaf will be amazing... or your second.
