Three-Seed Whole-Wheat Bread

  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Total Time 2 h 20 min
  • Makes: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 2½ tsp active dry yeast 12 mL
  • 2½ cups whole-wheat flour 625 mL
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting 250 mL
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp each sesame seeds and poppy seeds 30 mL
  • 1 tsp salt 5 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Grease 9 x 5 inch (23 x 12 cm) metal loaf pan.

  • Step 2

    In large bowl, combine 2 cups (500 mL) warm (not hot) water and yeast. Cover and let stand until foamy, about 10 min.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, in another bowl, mix whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, plus sunflower, sesame and poppy seeds, and salt. Stir flour mixture with yeast mixture until shaggy dough forms. Tip onto lightly floured surface. Knead about 10 min., or until dough is smooth and elastic, sprinkling with flour as needed to prevent sticking. Shape into an oval loaf. Place in prepared pan. Cover with damp tea towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hr.

  • Step 4

    Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Bake loaf on middle rack 45 to 50 min., or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 min., then unmold and cool bread on rack.

Tip

Substitute equal amounts of pumpkin seeds, golden flaxseeds and hemp seeds for sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and poppy seeds.
