Six Seed Soda Bread

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Debbwl

One of the farmers markets sells this very heavy dense bread that is chocked full of seeds. Well it is kind of expensive at $4.00 a loaf, so started playing around with some soda bread recipes and came up with this which is close. This is a heavy dense bread that only slices well when cold but tastes better warm. We enjoy it slightly warm with either plain or with flavored butter.*The dough is very sticky see notes in directions*

I used a salad topper mix from Costco! It had the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and also dried cranberries. Added in flax seed. Just use what you have.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. In a small bowl combine all the seeds and set aside.
  3. Combine the flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the seeds.
  4. Stir the sour milk/buttermilk (recommend using smaller amount and gradually add more milk as needed) into the dry ingredients just to blend (dough will be sticky).
  5. Turn out dough on to a well floured board and knead about 5 times, just enough to pull it together into a loose ball. (over kneading will make the bread tough).
  6. Place the dough on a lightly floured baking sheet and mark it with a deep cross across the top, cutting two-thirds to the way through the loaf with a serrated knife.
  7. Brush with a little milk and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of seeds.
  8. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  9. Cool on rack.
