Ingredients

  • 500 ml/16.9 fl.oz/ 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 42 g/1.5 oz fresh yeast or 4 ½ teaspoons dry yeast See note 1
  • 500 g/17.6 oz / 4 + 1/8 cups wholemeal spelt flour See note 2
  • 50 g/ 1.7 oz/ 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 50 g/ 1.7 oz/ 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 50 g/ 1.7 oz/ 1/3 cup flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  • Dissolve the fresh (or active dry) yeast in the lukewarm water. If using instant yeast, mix it with the flour.
  • Place your bowl on the digital scale. Weigh the rest of the ingredients directly into the bowl. Mix everything with a spoon. The dough will be pretty wet and runny, that is how it is supposed to be. You won't be able to knead it even if you wanted to.
  • Grease a loaf pan (circa 30 cm/ 12 inches long) with butter. Pour the dough inside, level it with the spoon.
  • Place the loaf pan in the COLD oven and set the temperature at 200 degrees Celsius/400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 1 hour.
  • Remove the bread from the pan, check if it's ready by tapping it with your knuckles on the underside, it should sound hollow. The underside of the bread should be a deep golden brown. If the underside is too lightly colored, place the bread in the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes, directly on the rack, upside down and without the tin.
  • Take it out of the oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Notes

  1. You can use instant yeast (to be mixed directly with the flour) or active dry yeast (to be dissolved in lukewarm water).
