Wholemeal bread with seeds

Please scroll down for Croatian

Ingredients


1 tbsp dried yeast

1 tsp sugar

450ml milk, lukewarm

350g wholemeal flour

350g strong plain white flour

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp milled linseed with goji berries, sunflower & pumpkin seeds

4 tbsp butter or margarine (I used Flora Cuisine), melted


Method


1. Put the yeast and 1/2 tsp of sugar in a cup with the 100 ml of warm milk and leave to stand for 10 mins in a warm place until frothy.


2. Mix the flours, salt, seeds and remaining sugar and milk into the yeast liquid. Add the butter to make a firm dough that leaves the side of the bowl clean. Turn out onto a floured work surface and knead until a soft dough is formed. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and leave until double in size.


3. Grease 2 baking sheets. Turn out the dough onto a floured work surface and knead well, then cut in half.


4. Form each piece of dough into a loaf shape and arrange on the prepared baking sheets. Dust a little with flour. Cover again and leave to rise for another 30-40mins. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.


5. Bake for about 30 mins or until is golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. I like to serve this bread warm with Clover Seedburst butter, sprinkled with some milled seeds.


Tips


You can substitute milled seeds with whole seeds.



Integralni hleb sa semenkama


Goji berries sam prvi put koristila u hlebu, verovatno zbog svoje boje hleb dobije tako divnu rskavo blago crvenkastu koricu. Semenke mozete staviti i cele ako tako vise volite, ja sam koristila mljevene i uspela zavarati one koji ih kazu nejedu.


Sastojci

(m.k =mala kasika)


450 ml toplog mleka

4 kasike tecnog maslaca

350 g integralnog brasna

350 g belog brasna

1 m.k vrhom puna soli

1 m.k ravna secera

3 kasike mljevenih semenki (suncokreta, lana, bundeve, goji bobica ili po zelji)

1 kasika suve germe


Priprema


1. Od potrebne kolicine mleka odvojiti 50 ml, staviti u solju sa kasicicom secera i dodati germu. Promesati i ostaviti na toplom nekoliko minuta da germa nadodje.


2. Obe vrste brasna prosijati u vecu posudu za mesenje, dodati so, maslac, semenke, nadoslu germu i s toplim mlekom zamesite glatko tjesto. Prekriti cistom kuhinjskom krpom ili prozirnom folijom i ostavite da se tjesto udvostruci.


3. U medjuvremenu pripremiti dva pleha  oblozena papriom za pecenje. Kad je tjesto nadoslo pretresti ga na pobrasnjenu radnu povrsinu. Samo blago premesiti, podeliti na dva jednaka dela, oblikovati vekne i ostaviti prekriveno kuhnjskom krpom da odmori jos oko pola sata.

4. Zagrijati rernu na 180C. Vekne zaseci nekoliko puta rebrastim nozem, posuti sa malo brasna i peci otprilike 40-45 minuta ili dok hleb lepo ne porumeni.


5. Koristila sam maslac koji sadrzi ukusnu mesavinu 7 semenki i celovitih zitarica i posula mljevenim semenkama lana, suncokreta, bundeve i goji bobica, fantasticno!!!
