Sunflower Bread

"This is a recipe that I got off of an email group that I used to belong to. I don't remember the group. This is a wonderful bread and I make it often. I once forgot the sunflower seeds ( yes I actually forgot the sunflower seeds in Sunflower bread....I have 7 children) and it was still good. This makes a great sandwich bread. I suppose you could leave in the bread maker but I always use the dough cycle on my bread and finish it in the oven. I prefer the shape of bread baked in the oven."

  1. Really good. Didn't have any powdered milk but it turned out great without it. Used the KA mixer to prepare dough: disssolved yeast in warm water and then stirred everything together in KA bowl. 4 minutes on speed 2 with dough hook. Took 25 minutes at 350 degrees in my oven. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I plan to make it many times!
  2. Made for PAC Spring-09: So glad I chose this recipe, this was a totally differant type of bread from what I've done before and the whole family enjoyed it hot from the oven with butter as suggested and it was great. I did have to make in my KA as I don't have a bread machine, and used a mix of seeds including sunflower - other than those small things made exactly as listed and very easy directions and went together fast so a bread that can be made on short notice. The taste was slightly sweet and a heavy texture that we all enjoyed for a change. Think this would also be great used for grilled cheese sandwiches and think that's just what I'll do with it. Thanks Cooking Mom for a great recipe.
