Health bread with seeds and honey

No article on bread would be complete without a wholesome health-bread recipe.

Makes: 2 medium loaves

Preparation time: 45 minutes, plus rising time

Baking time: 40 minutes

Oven temperature: 200°C

  • 4 x 250 ml (480 g) cake flour or 4 x 250 ml (560 g) white bread flour
  • 4 x 250 ml (560 g) Nutty Wheat wholewheat flour
  • 500 ml (80 g) digestive bran
  • 400 ml mixed seeds (such as sunflower , sesame, poppy and linseed)
  • 15 ml salt
  • 20 g instant dry yeast
  • 1 litre lukewarm water
  • 125 ml oil
  • 125 ml honey

1 Grease two loaf tins or spray nonstick food spray on them. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until they have combined. The batter will be quite heavy.

2 Divide the dough in two and place it in the loaf tins. Level the dough on top and leave in a warm place until the bread has risen to fill the tins.

3 Preheat the oven. Bake the bread for about 20 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Bake for another 20 minutes until the bread is golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Leave the bread in the tins to cool for a while and then turn out the bread onto a wire rack to allow it to cool completely
