READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 3 loaves


  • 560
    g brown bread flour
  • 80
    g natural bran
  • 12 12
    ml salt
  • 125
    ml sunflower oil
  • 125
    ml honey (or half honey+half molasses)
  • 450
    ml seeds, mixture (linseed, pumpkin, sesame, sunflower)
  • 2
    (10 g) packets instant yeast
  • 1
    liter lukewarm water


  • Grease 3 medium loaf tins or several smaller tins well.
  • Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well to form a smooth, heavy batter.
  • *Note*No need to sift flour.
  • Spoon the batter into tins making them no more than half full, and sprinle some sesame seeds on top.
  • Place the tins in a protected, mildly warm spot and leave to rise until doubled.
  • Bake at 200 deg celcius for 20 mins, lower to 180 degrees celcius and bake for a further 20 mins until browned on the top.
  • Cool in tins for 5 mins then remove onto cooling racks.
  • TIPS: Once cooled, wrap in cling film, and freeze the loaves you do not require immediatly as home made yeast bread does not last long.
  • Adjust time accordingly for smaller tins as they might require less than 1/2 the time.
  • You can use a drop of choc brown colouring if you want really dark brown loaves.
  • You could also sprinkle some wheat into the tins before putting the batter in.
  • The seed mixture is 450ml of what you like.
  • Add the seeds and amounts according to your tastes (maybe try raisins next time)- it's all up to you.
  • Serve with butter/marg or a good spread.
