1000 ml wholewheat flour
5 ml salt
10 g instant yeast
15 ml poppy seeds
15 ml linseed
15 ml sesame seeds
30 ml sunflower seeds
500 ml lukewarm water
30 ml oil
30 ml honey or golden syrup
extra seeds for sprinkling on top
Grease a few tins or cans of your choice with butter or non-stick spray (the dough is enough for one 25 cm loaf tin).
Mix the flour, salt, yeast and seeds together. Mix the water, oil and honey or syrup. Make a hollow in the centre of the
dry ingredients and add the liquid. Mix to form a soft dough and turn out into the prepared tins, filling them about halfway.
Sprinkle with extra seeds, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place. Preheat the oven to 200 ºC.
When the dough has doubled in volume, bake until golden – a testing skewer inserted in the centre of the loaves should come out clean.
(The baking time depends on the size of the tins – allow about 45 minutes for a 25 cm loaf tin). Serve with butter.
