Sunflower & Flax Seed Bread

After taking steamed buns for the past few days, I think it's about time to have some nice loaf of bread! I bought some flax seeds two months ago and the packing is still perfectly sealed. I just found out flax seeds is actually rich in Omega-3 fatty acid which is good for our health. Flax seeds look a little bigger than sesame seeds and its come in brown & yellow. Click here for more info. And here, what I did!

Ingredients :
1-1/3 cups water
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp honey
1 tspn salt
1-1/2 cups bread flour
1-1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 tspn yeast

Method :

- add all ingredients together to form a soft dough.
- leave to rest for an hour.
- then punch out the air from the dough and knead till smooth.
- roll flat the dough and roll it up like swiss roll.

- place it to a 9x5" baking tray and proof for 30-40 mins.
- finally, bake at 190' for 40 mins or untill golden brown.

You can toast it or make sandwiches or just have it plain... Well, I'm having it with my Nutella and also toast it with some butter. What about you???


  1. i love the second picture...the way the dough has risen and the seeds on it. looks pretty.awesome

  2. Yes, nutella is always good! You are such a good baker. I am so jealous, I wish I could do half as well. I love how you always throw something healthy in there for us. You show us some gorgeous, scrumptious sweets...then boom something good for you! haha! I love that!

  3. wow.. i wish i could go out for supper now.. just looking at this home made bun made me salivate.. ooopss..

  4. Incidentally I too baked a loaf of wholemeal bread which I took to my mom today:D Your bread looks very fluffy and healthy with all the seeds in it. I usually eat my bread with butter and jam and sometimes with ham packed to office for lunch:)

  5. Just butter, please. Melted all over that lovely bread!

  6. Bravo! C'est un pain très réussi.

  13. This loaf looks great. I love the way that you can see the swirl of the seeds in the slice, created by the rolling of the dough.

  14. Check my recipe for chocolate spread .. it's healthier than Nutella!

  15. Your loaf of bread looks great, can just eat it on its own!

  16. That's a beautiful bread! I would have a tomato sandwich with Swiss cheese and mayo. Heaven.

  17. Oh you temptress - maybe with cheese and tomato. Or just some hipped butter... or dipped in olive oil.... just so delicious.
