Nut And Seed Bread

I think I am starting to sound like a stuck record. It is still winter in the Western Cape. It is not nearly warm enough in my kitchen to prove bread, and even if I could sit the dough outside, it is raining. We have had snow before in October but for some reason this year’s winter seems to have lasted longer than previous years. I am going to start calling myself the queen of the bread maker. This is another trusty recipe you can make in the machine. The bread maker has been quite a blessing. I absolutely love fresh bread on the weekends and given the damp conditions here, I would have missed out since April. This loaf contains chopped almonds and whole sunflower seeds to make it a nut and seed bread. But, if you want, you can swap out the nuts for any you prefer. Just remember to chop them up before adding them. As I made this bread on Saturday evening I did not toast the sunflower seeds beforehand, but it would be worth doing if you have time. If I use pumpkin seeds then I definitely toast them first.

Do you use a bread maker?
