Rustic multi-seeded loaf

Quick and easy, delicious multi grain loaf.  Perfect even for beginners in bread making.  Recipe comes from  If you have never made bread before, read 'How to make a perfect loaf?' in my baking tips HERE.


  • 500g wholemeal (or mixed grain) bread flour
  • 2tbsp linen seeds
  • 1tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1tbsp poppy seeds
  • 7g dried yeast
  • 1tsp salt
  • 300ml warm water
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1tbsp clear honey
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.  In a jug combine all of the wet ingredients and pour into the dry mixture. Mix to form a soft dough, then knead on a floured surface until smooth and stretchy.  

Place the dough in a large bowl and leave to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Knead the dough quickly and shape into a loaf (or place in a 1.2 litre loaf tin), cover with a cloth and leave for about 20 minutes.  

Pre-heat the oven to 190C and place a small tray with boiling water on the bottom of the oven to create steam.  

With a sharp knife make few slashes across the top and brush with water, you can also sprinkle some seeds on top if you like.

Bake for about 30-35 minutes,  the loaf it ready then tapped on the bottom makes hollow sound.  Take out the oven and leave to cool before cutting.
