Multiseed Rye Bread | © 2013 |

This delicious seedy bread recipe, adapted from Brot-Bernd Armbrust
, is an alternative to your usual white bread. It is a firm, dense bread, but with great taste and packed with flavours. It is particularly good served with homemade nut butter, great as a sanwich or with salads. If you enjoy nutritious real bread, you will love this.

  • 200 ml Water, boiling
  • 50 g Rye flakes or old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 50 g Flaxseed
  • 50 g Sunflower seed
  • 50 g Pumpkin seed
  • 20 g Fresh yeast
  • 300 ml Water, lukewarm
  • 350 g Bread flour
  • 250 g Dark rye flour
  • 20 g Salt
  • 75 g Rye sourdough starter, 100% hydration
  • 50 g Sesame seed for coating
  1. Place rye flakes and seeds in a bowl. Pour in 200 ml boiling water. Stir until well mixed and leave it aside, covered, for 2-3 hours.
  2. Dissolve the fresh yeast with 300ml lukewarm water in the mixing bowl. Add in soaked mixture, flours, salt and rye starter. Stir at slow speed for 5 minutes, then increase the speed and knead for a further 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a floured work surface. Cover with a towel and proof for about 30 minutes. Fold and stretch the dough every 10 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into two portions and form each into a boule or baton. Brush the loaves with water and coat with sesame seeds. Place them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover and proof for 30 minutes. Dust the bread with a little flour and slash the top.
  5. At the same time, fill a baking tray with some water and place it at the bottom of the oven. Preheat the oven to 240C/475F. Once the oven has reached the desired temperature, remove the water and place the bread in the middle of the hot oven and baked for 35-40 minutes. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

You bread looks delicious. We buy a seven seed bread that sounds similar. One of our favorite snacks is to toast a slice, spread it with crunchy peanut butter and hot pepper jelly.

Kitcheninspirations 18/4/13 19:00

I'm always so impressed by your beautiful loaves and this one is no exception, just gorgeous. The crumb looks incredible and the inside looks delightful.

I love rye bread! My childhood favorite! With multi seeds especially. I am yet to conquer the yeast breads though, so I am pinning this to my Bread pinboard!

Tania @ A Perfect Pantry 19/4/13 04:18

Michelle@ Simplifiy, Live, Love 6/5/13 14:03

This bread reminds me so much of my childhood in Germany! I miss German bakeries and their wonderful bread so much. It's beautiful. I might have to give this a try! Thank you for the recipe.

Oksana 13/5/13 04:44

Love your breads! I have been into bread making myself lately. Love all the whole-grain and healthy ones. :)

Choclette 14/5/13 08:23

Your rye loaf looks gorgeous. I already add pumpkin, sunflower and flaxseeds to my rye sourdough, but had not though of rye flakes or even oats, so, will try that next week. The flax seeds are a recent addition. I soak them overnight and it gives a lovely texture to the bread.

Priya 22/7/13 09:31

The bread is baked to perfection and lovely little packing! I bake bread sometimes and i wanna try this one for my husband who loves multi grain ones...
