Soft Sandwich Loaf with Pumpkin Seed Oil

Labels: { , } | © 2019 |

The sandwich loaf bakes up tall, soft and bouncy, yet sturdy enough to slice nicely. It's perfect for tuna or egg sandwiches and jelly/peanut butter smeared toast for the breakfast. You can use the same dough to make cinnamon rolls, dinner buns or savoury bread.

  • 280 g Bread flour
  • 70 g Red wheat berries, milled into flour
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 5 g Instant dried yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 170 ml Buttermilk, lukewarm
  • 60 ml Pumpkin seed oil
  • 1 med. Egg, room-temperature
  • Egg wash
  • Sunflower or pumpkin seeds for the topping
  1. In the mixing bowl of your stand mixer, combine all of the ingredients and stir on slow speed until the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Increase the speed or knead until it begins to become smooth and elastic.
  2. Turn out the dough and shape into a ball. Grease the mixing bowl and return the dough ball to the mixing bowl. Cover the bowl, and allow the dough to rise until about doubled in bulk, about 1 to 2 hours, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.
  3. Gently deflate the dough and transfer it to a lightly oiled work surface. Shape the dough into 20 cm roll. Place it into a greased or lined 26x14cm loaf pan, cover the pan loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 60-90 minutes until the center is about 2.5 cm above the sides of the pan.
  4. Towards the end of the rise, preheat your oven to 190C/375F. Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle the seeds over. Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes, until it's light golden brown. Remove the bread from the oven, and cool it on a rack before slicing. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

You really should have become a professional baker. You could have made a very nice living at it. This bread is gorgeous and I'm sure it tastes as wonderful as it looks.

What a beautiful loaf of bread! Does the pumpkin seed oil contribute to its flavor?

The kind of bread I like to bake myself. I will keep it in mind, it would make a nice change to my usual recipes.

MunatyCooking 9/4/19 08:16

Hey Angie! This loaf of bread looks awesome but if I use olive oil or other cooking oil instead of pumpkin seed oil, will that ruin the flavor?

Angie's Recipes 9/4/19 09:33

@MunatyCooking Well, you might not ruin the flavour, but definitely will be different, also the colour will be lighter.

Emma @ Bake Then Eat 14/4/19 06:29

What a lovely loaf, I really need to improve my bread making skills and this looks like a great place to start.
