A Monday meme. Handmade with love, kneaded with strength, baked from the heat of the Earth. A part of each day. Every week I will post a photo of one our doughy creations. From seven-grain loaves to tortillas to hot cross buns to chapati to french bread sticks. If you’re inspired to post a photo of your homemade bread and recipes just leave a comment and link below for everyone to awe and marvel at. You’re also welcome to use the sidebar button if you’d like to.
Pumpkin and Sunflower Seed Breakfast Loaf
1 cup warm milk
1 packet (1/4 ounce yeast)
1/4 cup raw honey
4 tsp vegetable oil
1 cup spelt flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (peptitas)
Heat milk and honey in a saucepan until warm (don't let it get to hot or it will kill the yeast)
Pour into a bowl and mix with yeast.
Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl (not the seeds)
Add wet to dry ingredients and the seeds
Mix with your hands until a wet dough begins to form.
the dough should be quite moist and sticky, if it is too dry add warm water a tablespoon at a time until you think you have the right consistency
Knead for 5 minutes (you don't have to work too hard here)
Let rise for 2 hours in a warm place (ideally in the sun)
After it has doubled in size, sprinkle the dough with a small amount of white flour and shape into a fat loaf
Spray bread pan and place loaf in pan
Cover and let rise someplace warm for an additional 40 minutes
20 minutes before baking set oven to 200˚ C
Place bread in oven and turn heat down to 190˚ C. Bake for 28-33 minutes until golden on top and fragrant.
