DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let sit until frothy ~10 minutes.
  • Add oil, molasses, and whole wheat flour and mix until full incorporated.
  • Slowly add all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and salt. I usually use about 1.75 cups of the AP flour.
  • Add in seeds.
  • Knead in a mixer about 10 minutes, or longer if you’re kneading by hand.
  • Place into a greased bowl and let rise until double, about 1.5 hours.
  • Deflate the dough and let rise again until double, about 50 minutes.
  • Deflate dough and flatten with a rolling pin into a long rectangle, about 8 inches wide.
  • Slowly roll the dough into an 8″ wide log, squeezing out all the excess air as you go.
  • Pinch seams together and place seam side down into a 8x4" loaf pan.
  • Let rise about 30 minutes in loaf pan and preheat oven to 350.
  • Bake about 35-40 minutes.
