Whole Wheat Seed Bread


With my husband suffering badly from acid reflux I am on the hunt for good bread that will be gentle with him! This is a fantastic recipe that was developed by a lady who had a son with terrible  cancer. Even with his drastic ops he was still able to have this bread.  A winner I’d say!! 🙂

1/2 cup warm water

 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

3 tablespoons active dry yeast

3 1/2 cups warm water

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup molasses

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 eggs, beaten

9 cups sifted whole wheat flour

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1 cup quick cooking oats

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

3/4 cup cracked wheat

1 tablespoon sea salt

–       Stir together the 1/2 cup water and applesauce in a small bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the mixture, let stand until creamy, about 5 minutes.

–        Pour the yeast mixture into a large bowl with 3 1/2 cups of warm water, honey, molasses, vegetable oil, lemon juice, and eggs; stir together to combine well.

–       In a separate bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, flax seed, sunflower seeds, cracked wheat, and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the yeast mixture until a smooth dough forms. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

–       Lightly grease and four 20 x 12cm  loaf pans. Punch down dough, shape into loaves, and place in the pans. Allow to rise in pans until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

–       Preheat oven 180 C.

–       Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until the loaves sound hollow when removed from the pan and tapped on the bottom.



Makes 4 loaves. You can change the quantities for less.
