Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the flour, seeds, yeast and salt into a large bowl. Mix the water, oil and honey in a jug, then pour into the dry mix, stirring all the time to make a soft dough. If it feels sticky, sprinkle in a little more flour.

  • STEP 2

    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins, until the dough no longer feels sticky, sprinkling with a little more flour as you need it.

  • STEP 3

    Oil a 1.2-litre loaf tin and put the dough in the tin, pressing it in evenly. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for 1 hr, until it springs back when you press it with your finger. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

  • STEP 4

    Make eight slashes across the top of the loaf, brush with water and sprinkle alternately with poppy and sesame seeds. Bake for 30-35 mins until the loaf is risen and brown. Tip it out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.

RECIPE TIPS
CUSTOMISE IT
You can choose whatever flour you like for this loaf – wholemeal, granary or white. Instead of the seeds, you could throw in some chopped nuts and raisins, or even some cubes of cheese and chopped fried onions.
