World Bread Day 2018: Multi-Grain Multi-Seed Sandwich Bread

Homemade sandwich bread, full of grains and seeds!

Baking yeast breads is something I really enjoy doing. It took me a while and a lot of practice to get there though. My first breads were like doorknobs :) Since then, things have gotten a lot better, and I bake all of our bread; whether it's sandwich bread, hamburger buns, or cinnamon rolls. No more store-bought bread or rolls for us anymore!

Zorra from the blog Kochtopf organizes World Bread Day ever year. I just had to submit this simple, yet delicious and nutritious bread to her annual event :)

This sandwich bread is really easy to make. The baked bread is light and airy. It's great as-is or toasted. I like to slice the bread after it has cooled completely and then freeze it. This way I can take out what I need. This dough can also be used to make dinner rolls or (hamburger) buns. I hope you give this recipe a try!

Light and fluffy bread!

Yummy buns!

Makes great cheese sandwiches!

Multi-Grain and Multi-Seed Sandwich Bread
(original recipe)
Yields: one 16" x 4" x 4" loaf, two 8" x 4" loaves, or one 8" x 4" loaf plus 8-10 dinner rolls

Wet ingredients:

  • 120 gr water
  • 150 gr plain yogurt
  • 100 gr 1% milk
  • 28 gr extra-virgin extra oil
  • 1 large egg
Dry ingredients:
  • 250 gr whole wheat flour
  • 150 gr bread flour
  • 50 gr rye flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 50 gr old-fashioned oats, finely ground in spice grinder
  • 25 gr dark flax seeds, finely ground in spice grinder
  • 6 gr sea salt
  • 5 gr instant yeast
  • 3 Tbsp pumpkin seeds (add towards the last 5-10 min of the kneading process)
  • Place all the wet ingredients in the bowl of your bread machine. Add all the dry ingredients.
  • Run the Dough Cycle on your bread machine (on mine, this takes 90 min).
  • On a lightly oiled work surface, roll out the risen dough into a large square.
  • Roll the dough (similar to making cinnamon rolls) and pinch the ends.
  • Place the rolled up dough in the buttered/floured baking pan(s), seam-side down.
  • Covered with oiled plastic wrap (or shower cap) until doubled in volume. This can take up to one hour, depending on the room temperature.
  • Roughly 30 min into the second rise, preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Spray the dough with water.
  • Bake the risen dough in the preheated oven for 20 min. Reduce the temperature to 375 F and bake for another 10 min.
  • Remove the baked bread from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Bon appetit!
