  1. DAY 1 SCALDING: Put the flour in a mixing bowl. Pour the boiling water over the flour and stir until you have a smooth porridge-like mixture. Cover with cling-film and leave at room temperature for 24 hours.
  2. DAY 2: Soak the raisins in plenty of cold water for 30 minutes and drain in a sieve. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Toast the sunflower and pumpkin seeds until golden brown. Cool.
  3. KNEADING: Put the scalded flour mixture in the mixing bowl. Weigh flour, butter, honey and the yeast/milk mixture. °° Knead the dough for 13 minutes on the lowest speed. Add salt and knead on a slightly higher speed for another 7 minutes. Test for elasticity.
  4. Work in the raisins, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and walnuts.
    Place the dough in a lightly oiled lidded plastic container an leave for 60 minutes, knock back the dough once during rising.
    Turn out on a floured work surface and divide it in two. Shape two long rolls and cut each up into six pieces. Butter two 2-l baking tins, shape the dough pieces into oblong rolls and place them side by side in the tins. Glaze lightly with water and sprinkle with oatmeal.
  5. Cover with a tea-towel and put the tins in the unheated oven. Leave to rise until doubled in size. Remove the bread from the oven.
  6. Preheat the oven to 250°C. Return the bread to the oven and spray them generously with water.
  7. Lower the heat to 180°C after 5 minutes.
  8. Bake for approx. 40 minutes. Use a thermometer to check if the bread is ready (98°C).
  9. Take out the loaves, remove the tins and put the bread back in the oven for another 5 minutes for an even crust all round.

Suitable for freezing and good for toasting.

    Es ist schon lustig, genau dieses Buch liegt momentan ganz oben auf meinem ToDo-Bücherstapel. Nachdem dieses Brot so appetitlich aussieht, werde ich das Buch heute noch in Augenschein nehmen.
