A dense, moist rye bread lightened with whole-wheat flour, spiced with cumin and coriander. Cumin seeds are purported to contain enzymes that aid in digestion and are said to be effective in combating acid reflux. Coriander seeds are known to have anti-oxidant vitamin and rich in dietary fiber. So, the addition of spices adds not only flavour to the bread, but also nutritional potency.

Cumin and Coriander - sounds like a great addition to a warm and hearty bread. And toasted sesame seeds are my favorites. Wonderful photos, especially the large pie shaped wedge of fresh bread - goodness!

First, I love your quotes and this one really puts a big smile on my face. Now, the bread...I love rye bread; there's something so hearty and comforting about it and your photos are making my mouth water. I've never tried cumin or coriander, but love both those spices and with the chill in the air, I might just make this up. My only difference is that I have just regular sourdough starter and not a rye one for today's loaf, but you've inspired me to start a rye one for future loaves:-D

What a perfect and beautiful loaf. I love rye and whole grain bread and the sesame seeds on top must add lots of flavor and crunch as well.

Isn't this a nutritious power bread too? Your wholegrain breads have always been so nicely executed.

Helene Dsouza 28/9/12 14:42

yay I am all for healthy spices in breads! Cumin and caraway seeds (kümmel & Kreuzkümmel) are quite similar in the properties, just that cumin is more like clove and anis "tooth paste taste". Wish u a lovely weekend dear!

Ace bread! The kind that you can feel good about eating too! Cumin is one of my favorite spices, I sneak it in as many recipes as possible. This is a perfect bread for me :)

Barbara 28/9/12 19:28

Marvelous bunch of seeds in your bread, Angie. I love bread like this toasted...with honey. Fun to see cumin in the recipe; unusual for a bread.

(and yes, I did the apple slices myself. Thin, dipped in simple syrup and baked, low and slow.)

[Reply]
Elisabeth 28/9/12 21:48

Rye bread is my all-time favorite, and your creative and always gorgeous breads inspire me...especially this particular round gorgeous loaf with cumin, coriander and sesame seeds, and to start off with the 'sour dough' starter?...genius! A must try for sure (yeah, yeah, just wishful thinking)
