    If you are looking for high fibre bread this is the perfect choice with sesame seeds, flax seeds, poppy seeds and sunflower seeds in a wholemeal bread base.

    Serves: 20 

    • 7g dried active baking yeast
    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) lukewarm water
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) buttermilk
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 3 tablespoons honey
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    • 2 tablespoons linseeds
    • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
    • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
    • 250g wholemeal plain flour
    • 4 cups (625g) bread flour

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:2hours  ›  Ready in:3hours 

    1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. Combine buttermilk, butter, honey and the yeast mixture in a large bowl. Add the salt, all of the seeds and the wholemeal flour. Stir to combine. Add the bread flour, 60g or so at a time, mixing well with a wooden spoon after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes.
    3. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with the oil. Cover with a clean damp cloth and put in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    4. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease two 23x12cm loaf tins.
    5. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into the prepared tins. Cover with a clean damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
    6. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the tops are brown and the bottom of a loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

    Took shortcuts. Great bread. We loved all the seeds! I halved the recipe and made it in my bread machine on the dough setting. When I took it out, I continued from step 4.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. This bread is so good, and the toast is exquisite. I divided the recipe in half and made it start to finish in my bread maker. Perfect! I did, however, use a full tablespoon of yeast according to my machine's recommendations. The sunflower seeds were all chopped up, which was what I wanted, but you could add these later if you wanted them whole. I will make this regularly. Thank you for submitting it.  -  08 Oct 2008
