Makes 1 Loaf


  • 3 Cups Nutty Wheat Flour
  • 10g Instant Yeast
  • 10ml Brown Sugar
  • 15ml Honey
  • 20ml salt
  • 15ml oil
  • 50ml sunflower seeds
  • 50ml sesame seeds
  • 1¾ cups Tepid Water
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Place flour, yeast, sugar, honey, salt, oil, and seeds in a bowl.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the water. Mixture together and place in a warm place to double in size. Note: the mixture is quite wet and should resemble that of a fruit cake.
  4. Once doubled in size, spoon the mixture into a well greased loaf tin, filling it ¾ full. Brush lightly with egg wash and sprinkle with extra seeds. 
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until bread sounds hollow when tapped with a flat hand. 
  6. Remove from the tin and cool on a cooling rack.
