Well-Seeded Bread

I’ve been making this bread a lot lately. It has flax, sesame and sunflower seeds in it and it is light and wonderful. Last week I made this bread into loaves, but this week I decided to use the same dough to make rolls. Delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

Well-Seeded Bread

2 cups warm water
4 teaspoons yeast
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons wheat germ
2 tablespoons flax seed
2 tablespoons sesame seed
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1-2 cups bread flour

Mix together water and yeast. In a large bowl mix together white whole wheat flour (if you don’t have white whole wheat, all-purpose flour would be fine), salt, seeds and germ. Add in yeast mixture, canola oil, honey and sugar. Mix well. Add in the whole wheat flour and enough bread flour to make a soft dough. Knead. Place in a floured bowl and let rise for 45 minutes. Punch it down and divide the dough in half. For rolls, roll each portion into a circle and using a pizza cutter, cut into 8 wedges. For loaves, roll out each portion of dough into a circle and roll up the circles into loaves. Place rolls/loaves on baking sheets (I cover my baking sheets with parchment paper). Let rise for 30-45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. Bake loaves for 35 minutes, rolls for 18-20. Cool and eat!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
