Ingredients

  • 10
    g
    dry yeast (not instant yeast)
  • 5
    ml
    melted honey
  • 250
    ml
    lukewarm water
  • 750
    ml
    wholewheat flour
  • 5
    ml
    salt
  • 30
    ml
    olive oil
 

Method

 
Mix the dry yeast and honey with a little lukewarm water and leave until frothy. Meanwhile mix the water, flour, salt and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until the mixture no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. Cover and rest for about an hour in a warm place. Punch down and shape into a round loaf. Wipe a heavy-based pan with oil and place the bread inside the pot. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds, if desired. Cover and place on the stove plate. Bake for about 1 hour over low heat or until the loaf is done - it will sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Turn the bread in the pan so the top faces down. Heat for a further 5 minutes to allow the top to brown lightly. Serve with lentil paté, herbed cottage cheese, avocado, peanut butter or butter.
