Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Sunflower Bread

4 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp yeast (rapid-rise)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (extra for sprinkling)
1 1/4 cups water (warm)

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Sunflower Bread

  1. Grease and flour a 1 lb loaf pan.

  2. Mix together the flour, yeast, salt and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and gradually stir in the warm water. Mix vigorously with a wooden spoon to form a soft, sticky dough. The dough should be quite wet and sticky, so don't be tempted to add any extra flour.

  3. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and leave the dough to rise in a warm place for 45-60 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

  4. Preheat the oven to 400. Turn out the dough on to a floured work surface and knead for 10 minutes - the dough will be sticky.

  5. Form the dough into a rectangle and place in the loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with sunflower seeds. Cover with a damp towel and leave to rise again for 15 minutes.

  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden - the loaf should sound hollow when tapped underneath. Leave for 5 minutes, then turn out of the pan and leave to cool on a wire rack.
