The crunch of sunflower seeds and the rich sass of treacle make this loaf super yummy. If you like, substitute wholemeal flour for some of the bread flour.
Ok, very heavy though. Not my taste, won't make again! - 28 Oct 2014
We enjoyed this bread quite a bit. After reading the other reviews, I added more like 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, and in my machine, this was just right. It tends to chew up add-ins, and I had planned on adding another 1/4 cup or so during the last 5 minutes of kneading, but fouled up my timer and missed the whole thing! By adding the extra at the start, I didn't need the last-minute add. I added 1/2 tsp. salt, and found it to be just a little flat -- a problem that could be solved by sprinkling a little salt on the slice while eating it. Next batch will have a full tsp. salt. Loved this one -- thanks for submitting it! Update: I don't agree with those who thought this was not good the next day. I'm eating it for breakfast, and it's great! - 26 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
One of my favorites! Love the texture. For a variation, I sometimes add ground flax seeds. - 11 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
