    OK, not birdseed really. Just reminds me of it. We love this for it's nutty flavor. It is a very substancial bread and makes a great piece of toast. I use 1 more T of millet and sunflowerseeds each and use rolled 6 grain instead of oats for us.

    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast in warm water and 1/2 T sugar.
    2. 2
      Add salt, honey, margarine, and buttermilk.
    3. 3
      Then add all seeds, corn meal, and rolled oats. Then whole wheat flour and oat flour.
    4. 4
      While its mixing slowly add the bread flour. You may need more or less of the bread flour, just enough till nice and elastic. Knead well by hand or with mixer.
    5. 5
      Place in a sprayed bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise till doubled. This is a heavy bread and may take awhile, placing in a warm place will aid this.

      Punch down and divide in 1/2.
    7. 7
      Shape into loaves and place in greased pans, cover, and allow to rise till doubled again.

      Great bread and like someone else said so much cheaper than the stuff you get in the store. I did make the dough in my Bread Machine, loading as per the machine instructions. Also followed another reviewers thoughts and added vital wheat gluten. I didn't have millet and couldn't find it so just left that out. The end result was a high rising, soft, yummy bread that will be great for toast and sandwiches. It made two nice sized loafs and the cook time was right on.

      Wonderful! Wild Oats grocery used to sell birdseed bread and I wanted a nice recipe to make my own since it was $3.50 a loaf. I love a nice multi-grain nutty dense bread. It's not super heavy and has a great flavor. I love it toasted. I did double the seeds to 2 T of each. It slices well. I did change the bread flour to 1 3/4 c. and then added 1 3/4 c. of King Arthur unbleached All-Purpose flour because I didn't have enough bread flour. It turned out great. Thank you very much for sharing! I've made two batches in the last two weeks! Yum!

      I've been looking for a seeded bread that doesn't have that "heavy" feel and taste to it, and this one fills the bill. I had to alter the proportions of seeds, using what I had in the house, but that was the only change I made. Used my KA mixer to knead. Beautiful bread! Will make time and time again. Thanks homegirl
