Whole Wheat Sunflower Seeds Bread

It's been a while not posted and cooked anything special! So thought of doing the COME BACK with everyone and mine favorite 'Baking'!

After referring to many website thought of making the Sunflower Seeds Bread and that too NO Sugar! Isn't it amazing to know that :) with an addition of no butter too :) :)

Let's take look at Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cup - Whole Wheat Flour ( I used King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 1 1/2 cup - All purpose Flour 
  • 2 tsp - Instant Active Yeast 
  • 2 tbsp - oil or 2 tbsp butter (Anything would do)
  • 2 tbsp - Honey 
  • 1/4 cup - Sun flower seeds 
  • 1 1/2 tsp - Salt 
  • 1 1/3 cup - warm water 

  • Take 1 cup of warm water, add yeast and honey to it. Keep it aside and let it get rise. 
  • Sieve the All purpose flour, wheat flour, salt and add oil to it. 

  • Add the proven yeast mixture into the sieved flour and start kneading slowly. Keep adding rest of the 1/3 cup warm water into the flour as required. At first it will be sticky, but then it will form like spring dough. If you want to grease your hand with oil, go ahead and do it. Knead for about 8-10 minutes. 
  • Transfer it to the greased bowl and cover it with food wrap. It is summer so dough will rise amazingly high :) :) Look at mine! looks perfect :) :) Let it rise for 1 1/2 hour. This is the first rise. 

  • Take the bowl out and punch the dough with your fist. Add half of the sunflower seeds and knead again. Add remaining sunflower seeds and knead for couple of minutes. 
  • Put the dough in the greased loaf pan and let it rise for 45 minutes again. This will be your 2nd Rise. 
  • Preheat the oven on 375F and bake for 30-35 minutes. 

Your house will be full of Bread Aroma :) :) :) :)

Take it out once done, put it on the cooling rack! Cut it with the bread knife. 

Happy Baking :) :)
