"Enjoy this light, nutty-flavoured loaf toasted in the morning, or as a foundation for your favorite sandwich. Toast seeds for a nuttier flavour."

• 3/4 cup water
• 4 teaspoons honey
• 4 teaspoons canola oil
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 1/3 cups bread flour
• 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
• 3 tablespoons flax seed
• 4 teaspoons sesame seeds
• 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
• 1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

This is an absolutely delicious bread recipe. My mom and I use this as a base for most breads - replacing seed with nuts, raisins, oatmeal, muesli, and replacing flour with ground buckwheat groats, etc.

It's delicious!

Here's a step-by-step to make it simple.

1) Warm the water to 110 degrees celsius,

2) Measure and stir in honey

3) Stir in yeast with a fork (remove thermometer first or you’ll have trouble shaping it)

4) Let it sit for 10 minutes or until frothy, as such

5) While waiting, measure your salt into the mixing bowl

6) Add in Oil

7) Add in wholemeal flour

8) Add in high protein flour

9) Add in nuts/seeds

10) Pour in yeast/water/honey mixture

11) Knead in stand mixer/by hand/bread mixer until the dough springs back quickly when pressed
(For stand mixer, mix with dough hook at minimum speed for 1 minute to combine, then at speed 1 untl done)

12) Grease a bowl and place dough to rise in oven with a mug of boiling hot water
(Remember to remove dough hook)
