No-knead Seed Bread

Don’t be fooled by how easy it is to make this bread. It is one of the best breads you will ever make with the least effort and will probably become one of your fall-backs in times to come!

15ml dried yeast

250ml lukewarm water

400g wholemeal flour

10ml salt

125ml sunflower seeds

62ml sesame seeds

62ml linseeds

30ml oil

Lockdown tip: If you don’t have have the specified seeds you may replace it with other seeds or even nuts you do have at hand, as long as the total amount of seeds make up the equivalent of 250ml. You may even replace with pumpkin seeds which you have dried and toasted yourself!

Pour the lukewarm water into a suitable container and sprinkle the yeast on top. Give it a good stir and leave to stand until bubbles start appearing on the surface.

Mix the flour and salt in another mixing bowl.

Stir in the seeds.

Add the yeast mixture and oil to this bowl and mix through with a spatula.

Now check the consistency of your dough. You want it to slide off the spatula. If you have a dough that is too stiff, add a tiny amount of lukewarm water and mix again. Check whether the dough now slides off the spatula. Keep going until you have achieved the desired consistency.

Preheat your oven to 200℃.

Grease a medium sized bread tin and spoon the mixture into it. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and a tea towel and leave to stand at room temperature until almost doubled in size.

Bake the bread for one hour.

Take out of the oven, let it rest on a cooling rack for ten minutes and then take it out of the tin. Cool completely before slicing.
