  • For Dough:
  • 350 g - wholemeal flour
  • 150 g - white bread flour
  • 7 g - dried Yeast
  • 300 ml - warm water
  • 170 g - Sunflower seeds
  • 6 tbsp - Sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp - salt
  • 1 tsp - ground caraway
  • 1 tsp - ground coriander
  • 1 - Egg yolk (for glazing)
  • How to Make Sunflower Bread:

    1. Dry roast the sunflower seeds and keep it aside.
    2. Mix the flour, yeast, oil, salt and spices to form a smooth dough. Knead in the sunflower seeds, saving 2 tbsp later for the topping. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place.
    3. Take the dough, punch the air back, divide it into two balls. Make it flat like a circle, cover the dough and allow it to rise for another 20 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
