This is a fabulous recipe as no kneading required. It takes about 10 minutes to mix and an hour to cook. Please note – sunflower seeds turn green when cooked with bicarb – don’t be alarmed! If you use dried fruit soak it in water or milk for about an hour. It keeps the bread moist as the fruit isn’t absorbing the moisture in the bread
2 cups plain yoghurt
2 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
3 cups nutty wheat flour
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup mixed other seeds and/or nuts/dried fruit (flax seed, sesame, chopped almonds, cashews, etc)
1 Tbsp seeds for top of loaf
1 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Grease a standard loaf tin and place a piece of baking paper at the bottom (or the paper from butter)
Mix yoghurt, milk, bicarb and honey together in a bowl
Combine the remaining ingredients in another bowl.
Pour the yoghurt mix into the flour and combine well. The mixture will be stiff. If it is dry, add a little more milk
Put it into the loaf tin, smooth the top and sprinkle with the extra seeds.
Bake for an hour or until a knife comes out clean
