    WendyinGermany's Note:

    An easy recipe from Canadian Living. I used pumpkin seeds as I do not care for sunflower seeds. It was suggested to cook this bread in a covection oven for a crispier crust and it was delicious. Unfortunately the crust softened overnight. Preparation time does not include the 3 1/2 hours needed for the bread to rise.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 18



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In bowl, dissolve 1 tsp of the sugar in 1/2 cup of the warm water; sprinkle in yeast. Whisk in 1/4 cup of the whole wheat flour; set in warm place until bubbly, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      In large bowl, combine molasses, butter, salt and remaining sugar and warm water. Stir in sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, yeast mixture and 1/2 of the rolled oats. With wooden spoon, stir in remaining whole wheat flour and enough of the all-purpose flour to make stiff dough.
    3. 3
      Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, kneading in as much of the remaining white flour as necessary - about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Place in a large greased bowl, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap, let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk - about 2 hours.
    5. 5
      Punch dough down, turn out onto lightly floured surface. With rolling pin, flatten into 11" x 8" rectangle; firmly roll up into log and pinch seam to seal. Place, seam side down, in a greased 9" x 5" loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk - about 1 1/2 hours.
    6. 6
      With tip of sharp knife, make 1/2" deep slash lengthwise down centre of loaf. Brush top with water, sprinkle with remaining oats. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) convection oven until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on bottom - about 40 minutes. Let cool on rack.
    7. 7
      For a conventional oven - bake on centre rack at 400°F (200°C) for 30 minutes.

      This is a new family staple! Fabulous bread! Although I should note that I did make one substantial change- I used Robin Hood's Multigrain Flour that can be substituted cup for cup for white. I didn't have whole wheat. I actually even used the multigrain in place of the white as well. The only bit of white flour I used was the last cup for kneading. The only other minor change I made was I used an eggwhite wash instead of plain water for the top of the loaf because I found it held the oats on better and gave the finished loaf a nicer color. I happened to be making other bread at the time and so it was just as quick to use. I baked mine in my Pampered Chef stoneware loaf pans and the crust was amazing. I've made about 4 double batches in the last week!! YUM. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!
