Seed Bread Recipe

Here’s the second of my two seed bread recipes this week. @jessica55 asked for one for a bread machine so here it is!

Seed Bread Recipe

This recipe is for the bread machine, 1 1/2 to 2 lb. (750 g – 1 kg) bread loaf pans.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups (300 ml) warm water
2 tbsp. (25 ml) liquid honey
2 tbsp. (25 ml) vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. (7 ml) salt
1 cup (250 ml) whole wheat flour
2 cups (500 ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (50 ml) flax seeds
2 tbsp. (25 ml) sesame seeds
1 tbsp. (15 ml) poppy seeds
2 tsp. (10 ml) quick-rise (instant) dry yeast

Directions:

In order, place water, honey, oil, salt, flours, seeds, and yeast into your baking pan. Remember not to let the liquids touch the yeast. Choose a whole-wheat setting on your bread machine. Remove baked loaf from the pan and cool on a rack.

If you would like a hearth-type bread:

Simply make the dough in the bread machine and then remove it to a floured surface. Punch down the dough and gently pull it into an 8 x 11 inch (20 x 28 cm) rectangle. Starting at the narrow end, roll up into a cylinder, pinch along the bottom to smooth and seal. Fit it into a greased 8 x 4 inch (1.5 L) loaf pan. Cover and let rise for 1 hour (or until doubled in size).

Brush the top of the loaf with water. With a sharp knife, cut a slash about 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep along the length of the top. Bake at 400º F (200º C) for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350º F (180º C) and bake for 30-35 minutes. The loaf will be brown and should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from pan and cool on a rack.

What’s better than one loaf of homemade bread? TWO loaves of homemade bread! :partying_face: :bread: I’d never turn away from an extra bread recipe, and it’s definitely the season for bread recipes! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

If only it wasn’t so darn hot to bake bread!

Cheers to that- and if it isn’t scorching hot, then it’s pouring summer rains :sweat_smile::cloud_with_rain: Luckily homemade bread makes just about every situation a bit more bearable :bread: :yum:

That is another reason I like my bread machine! I used to bake bread before we moved full time into the RV but in the Texas summers it gets WAY too hot (100+ F most of the time) to even cook inside let alone bake! For me it was generally only a fall/winter/spring thing which meant it really only happened November - March, if the weather cooperated.

So bread machines don’t make it very hot in a home? That’s an idea. I mostly cook out of my toaster over and microwave during the summer.

No, mine doesn’t add much heat at all. It produces about the same as my crock pot.

Ah, thanks! I may have to look into that if we get another stimulus check!

@Amethyst this got rave reviews tonight at my mini Lughnasadh celebration with friends! Right before it started to bake, I carved a heart in the top for the love I share with my friends and family.
