Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Servings 2 loaves


Day 1

  • 230 g Anita's Unbleached White Flour
  • 1 g 1/4 tsp Instant yeast
  • 145 ml Water

Day 2

  • 250 g Anita’s Stoneground Whole Wheat Flour
  • 60 g Anita’s Rye Flour
  • 12 g Sea salt
  • 10 g Instant yeast
  • 230 ml Lukewarm water (approx. 30˚C)
  • 20 g Molasses
  • 60 g Sesame seeds
  • 60 g Pumpkin seeds
  • 60 g Golden flax seeds
  • 60 g Sunflower seeds


Day 1

  • Combine the white flour, yeast and water and knead it into a smooth dough (approx. 2 - 3 min), cover the dough in a container or mixing bowl and allow it to ferment at room temperature for 16 - 20 hours.

Day 2

  • Combine the first dough from the previous day with the whole wheat flour, rye flour, salt, molasses, yeast and water and knead all together until smooth and elastic and a good gluten network is established (approx. 8 - 10 min).
  • Add the seeds to the dough and knead them in until evenly dispersed.
  • Cover the dough and allow it to ferment and double in volume for approximately 60 minutes.
  • Split the dough in two pieces and shape them round into a ball, allow to rest again for 10 min. Shape the dough into their final shape (round, loaf pan or oblong).
  • Place the finished, shaped loaves in a warm area, cover to prevent from drying out and allow them to rise until they double volume once again.
  • Slash and bake the bread at 450˚F for approximately 30 - 40 min.

    This bread is delicious, nice and hearty but not overly dense. Worked perfectly and I’m fairly new to baking to bread. Will make again absolutly.


    First of all the bread taste great, love the nutty flavour from the seeds, I am impressed with your recipes , not just this one, with how accurate your water/flour ratio is.
