Super seed bread

I have fallen for a seedy bread made by one of the large bakery chains. As always it was only a matter of time before I  decided to see if I could replicate the loaf, and I am pretty proud of this, my first attempt at recreating it.

There are seven different seeds in this loaf and that makes for a whole lot of fibre and nutrition. That was all I had on hand when I  finally decided I had time to test my idea. Next time I plan to add flax seed (linseed) and millet.

Super seed bread


Mix together:

1/4 cup poppyseeds

1/4 cup sesame seed

Put aside until ready to bake the bread.


For the bread dough:

6 cups bread flour (plain, strong white flour)

3/4 cup buckwheat flour

3/4 cup rye flour

1 cup roasted buckwheat

1 tablespoon dry yeast

1 tablespoon salt

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons oil

1/2 cup quinoa

1/4 cup poppyseeds

3/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1 tablespoon caraway seeds

1 teaspoon cumin seeds


Mix all the bread dough ingredients together in a large bowl. Add lukewarm water, mixing all the time until a soft dough forms. Knead well, adding a small amount of extra flour as needed.

Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic (a clean plastic showercap is ideal) and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (about an hour).

Punch down and shape into loaves or individual rolls. Put a small amount of oil on plate and roll the loaves in it, covering all sides, then roll in the poppyseed-sesame seed mixture. Place in a loaf tin or other baking container, then cover and let rise again for about 30 minutes.

Bake in a preheated 200C oven for 45 minutes for a loaf, around 25 minutes for individual rolls. Cool on a rack. Loaves are done when they sound hollow when tapped on the base. Makes two loaves this size.

Exactly. It's a great way to use up some tag-ends of flours and grains, although I do try to use at least half wheat flour so that the loaf doesn't turn out too crumbly.

Hi. Popped in from Lorraine's blog as she's just shared your recipe. So nice to see a variety of flours used in this seed loaf. It looks great.
