How to Make Sunflower Bread

  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius.
  • Take a pie cutting ring, make it wet and press it in the middle of the loaf. Make 7 to 8 long cuts towards the middle of the loaf from the outer edge using a sharp knife.
  • Whisk the egg yolk with 1 tsp of water and brush it on top of the loaf. Sprinkle the rest of the sunflower seeds in the middle of the bread.
  • Place a fire proof cup with cold water onto the floor of the oven. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes.
