Simple seeded loaf with rye

I use a 250ml cup to measure my ingredients:


3 cups of flour - proportions can be varied, but try 2½ cups strong white bread flour and ½ cup rye flour;

240ml (a fraction under a cup) of warm water;

2 tbsp olive oil;

½ tsp salt;

3 tsp sugar;

tip of a teaspoon of vitamin C powder;

7g fast action yeast;

¼ cup of mixed seeds (this one had white poppy, sunflower and blue poppy, but golden linseed, sesame, caraway and pumpkin all work well too.


Simply use the basic cycle of any decent breadmaker and in roughly 3 hours you have a hearty, healthy loaf.
