Heat first four ingredients until very warm (120 F-130 F).
(Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.) In large bowl, combine warm liquid and remaining ingredients except rye flour; beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
By hand, stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough.
On well floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
Place in greased bowl.
Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes.
Punch down dough; divide.
Shape into 2 round loaves; place on opposite corners of greased (not oiled) cookie sheet.
Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes until deep golden brown and loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped.
If desired, brush warm loaves with melted butter or margarine.
