About this recipe: This is a wholesome and highly nutritious bread. It's packed with fibre, vitamins, minerals and flavour! Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are studded throughout this loaf. Feel free to experiment with other additions, such as walnuts, sesame seeds or whatever you fancy.
. Used poppy seeds. Very dense and yummy. - 07 Dec 2010
Finally a wheat bread recipe that's not sweetened! This is as tasty as German breads, but mine was not as elastic. I did tweak it, using oats instead of cornmeal and flax seeds instead of sesame seeds, and I used all water rather than part milk (more in line with German recipes). Based on a previous review I doubled the salt, but that made it a bit too salty for my taste. Next time I would stick with 1 - 1 1/2 tsp. salt. It is still a very good old world-like bread. - 27 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I skipped the seeds, and I used coursely-ground cornmeal that I had let soak in the 3/4 c. milk. I added about 2 T. gluten to this as well. I let it rise twice, baked it in a 9x5 pan in a 350 oven, and it rose really well. It perhaps could use a bit more salt. - 08 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
