  • 200 ml Water, boiling
  • 50 g Rye flakes or old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 50 g Flaxseed
  • 50 g Sunflower seed
  • 50 g Pumpkin seed

  • 20 g Fresh yeast
  • 300 ml Water, lukewarm
  • 350 g Bread flour
  • 250 g Dark rye flour
  • 20 g Salt
  • 75 g Rye sourdough starter, 100% hydration
  • 50 g Sesame seed for coating
  1. Place rye flakes and seeds in a bowl. Pour in 200 ml boiling water. Stir until well mixed and leave it aside, covered, for 2-3 hours.
  2. Dissolve the fresh yeast with 300ml lukewarm water in the mixing bowl. Add in soaked mixture, flours, salt and rye starter. Stir at slow speed for 5 minutes, then increase the speed and knead for a further 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a floured work surface. Cover with a towel and proof for about 30 minutes. Fold and stretch the dough every 10 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into two portions and form each into a boule or baton. Brush the loaves with water and coat with sesame seeds. Place them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover and proof for 30 minutes. Dust the bread with a little flour and slash the top.
  5. At the same time, fill a baking tray with some water and place it at the bottom of the oven. Preheat the oven to 240C/475F. Once the oven has reached the desired temperature, remove the water and place the bread in the middle of the hot oven and baked for 35-40 minutes. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |
