Take warm water in a jug, add in honey and mix well. Sprinkle yeast over it and let it stand for 5 mins till yeast activates.
Once yeast activates, add in treacle and olive oil and mix well.
Take flour, rye flour, whole wheat flour, salt, caraway seeds in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Mix it on low speed for 30 seconds.
Now add in the wet mixture and let it mix for at least 5 to 8 mins, Make sure you stop it in between and give a good scrape before mixing again.
Once dough is mixed well. Transfer the dough into a well oiled bowl. Cover with a cloth and set aside somewhere warm for 1 hour till it doubles in size.
Take a loaf pan, oil it well and sprinkle flour all over it. Set aside.
Once the dough is risen. Transfer it carefully to a floured work surface. Don't deflate the dough. Flatten it gently so the air pockets are still there.

TIPS & TRICKS FOR BAKING RYE BREAD
I used a stand mixer for making the bread. You could use hands to knead the dough really well. Knead it for at least 10 mins if working with hands.
If you have dough hook attachment in your electric hand mixer then you can use that.
Once the dough is risen, don't deflate it. Just transfer it gently to a work surface and roll it carefully. This way the air pockets stays in the bread and makes the bread soft and fluffier.
If you don't have treacle, then you can substitute with honey or brown sugar.
You can use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.
Cool the bread on wire rack completely before slicing into it.
Rye bread makes the best sandwiches and toasts.
