So full of poppy and sunflower seed flavor, I usually have to double this recipe because it goes so fast in my family. Bread bakers will appreciate it's perfect shape and soft texture. —Rachel Heidenreich, Marshall, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower kernels
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 egg

Directions

In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, yeast, salt and 1 cup all-purpose flour; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat water, butter and honey to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients. Stir in flax, sunflower kernels, poppy seeds and enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes. Punch down dough; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans, seam side down. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, beat egg; brush over loaves. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
