Sunflower seed bread


The smell alone of this bread baking is enough to make it worthwhile! Heavenly!


  • 2/3 C warm milk or water (I used milk)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 C sunflower seeds, + more for sprinkling on top

Combine honey, milk, sugar, salt, yeast, oil, and egg in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Add in flour and sunflower seeds and mix just until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Pour dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let rise about 2 hours, or until doubled in size.

Shape risen dough into an oval (batard shape) and place in a lightly greased 8x4" loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-40 minutes. While bread is rising, preheat oven to 375 F. 

Once bread has risen, brush top with a little vegetable oil and sprinkle top with sunflower seeds.

Bake the loaf for 35-45 minutes, then allow it to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing or serving.
