Our Daily Bread (Bread Machine)
- Ready In:
1 loaf (1.25kg)
- 355 ml water
- 3 tablespoons light olive oil
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 200 g whole wheat flour
- 200 g rye flour
- 275 g white bread flour
- 1 teaspoon bread improver
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons powdered milk (we use skim milk powder)
- 1⁄2 cup linseed sunflower seeds and almond mix (Lsa mix - from health food stores or health food section of supermarket - optional)
- 2 teaspoons dried yeast
- 3⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
- Place all ingredients, except for the sunflower seeds, into the mixing pan in the order recommended for your brand of breadmaker.
- In our breadmaker we put wet ingredients first, then dry ingredients, then yeast.
- Place sunflower seeds into the fruit and nut dispenser of your breadmaker or, if you don't have a dispenser, keep them aside until later.
- Set breadmaker settings to WHOLEWEAT, MEDIUM (crust), and LARGE (size)- this recipe makes a 1250g loaf.
- If your breadmaker has a fruit and nut dispenser, set it to dispense the nuts eg NUTS YES.
- Press START.
- Check the consistency of the dough during the kneading stage and add a little more water or flour if the dough seems too dry or too wet.
- If you don't have a fruit and nut dispenser, add the sunflower seeds towards the end of the first knead.
- Check loaf again towards the end of the final rise and if necessary, use your hand to form it into a neater shape.
- When the BAKE cycle is finished, remove the loaf from the pan and cool on a rack.
- To give the loaf a nice shiny finish, spray with spray oil while it is still warm.

<p>Above: Slideshow of our garden at Avalon Slideshow of our recent holiday at Woodgate Beach, South-East Queensland, Australia. Hi! I'm Kookaburra, from Australia. First, a promise. I will only post recipes on this site which I've made myself and to which I would personally give a 5 star rating - what you give them is up to you ;-) I look forward to receiving your feedback. If you look at my reviews, they're all 5 stars. That doesn't mean I give 5 stars to every recipe I try. I'm just not interested in giving poor ratings to anyone else's recipe because I accept that different people have different tastes. So, I've decided that I'll only review those recipes which I really love and which I'd make again and recommend to friends. If a recipe meets that criteria - even if it needs a bit of 'tweaking' to match my tastes, I'll give it 5 stars. If not, I'll just delete it from my recipe book and no hard feelings. I'm not advocating this as the 'right' approach. I just decided I needed a consistent strategy for rating and this is mine. I'm passionate about cooking - and eating! What I look for in food is something that 'zings' in the mouth. I like lots of taste - I'm not a big fan of subtlety. I don't often cook recipes exactly as written. I like to experiment and adapt things to my own taste. A retired marketing executive and academic, I live with my elderly (but thoroughly modern) mother in a tiny mountain village at the edge of the rainforest. I'm female, happily single, in my mid-40s and boast the Rubenesque figure of a passionate cook! Avalon, our 'story-book' cottage, overlooks a small lake. As I sit at my computer or work in the kitchen, I'm serenaded by a cacophany of native birds - including a very fat family of kookaburras! We have quite a large property and are lucky to have vegetable gardens and a variety of fruit and nut trees. I look forward to sharing recipes on Recipezaar with family, friends and friends I've yet to meet. last minute flight</p>
