  • 1 tbsp sugar

    Bread with seeds
  • From the amount of water listed in the ingredients, pour 150 ml into a separate glass. Crumble the pressed yeast into it and add half a teaspoon of sugar to feed them. To accelerate the fermentation process, the glass can be placed in a container with moderately hot water.

    Yeast, warm water
  • After about 20 minutes, a rich foam should appear on the surface of the water with the yeast — it’s time to start kneading the dough.
    Abundant foam
  • In a large pot, pour all the flour, pour the risen yeast from the glass, add the remaining water, as well as salt, sugar, oil, and seeds. Sunflower seeds and sesame can be slightly roasted beforehand. In this case, the seeds were already ready and did not need roasting.

    Flour, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds
  • Mix all the ingredients.
    Mixed ingredients
  • Knead the dough well so that it is elastic, does not stick to the hands and to the table, and looks uniform. This takes from 5 to 10 minutes.
    Douf for bread cooking
  • Place the dough ball in the pot. Cover the container with film or a lid and put it in a warm place. An electric oven heated to 50-60 degrees is well suited for proofing the dough.
    Dough for proofing
  • Within an hour, the dough will increase in volume.
    Dough after proofing
  • The risen dough needs to be punched down.
    Crumpled dough
  • After punching down, divide the dough into two parts — one for each bread pan. Let the dough stand in a warm place for another 20 minutes to rise again.
    Dough divided into two halves
  • Roll out one part of the dough into a large flatbread, fold it in three and roll it out again. Repeat this process three times. Thanks to such rolling, the dough will rise evenly, without forming voids.
    Dough cakes
  • Roll the resulting layer into a roll.
    Rolling the dough into a roll
  • At the same time, tuck in the edges.
    Roll from the dough
  • Place the dough blank in the mold. If the mold is new and of good quality, there is no need to line it with parchment or foil. However, for an old mold with scratches, it is better to put a sheet of foil or baking paper on the bottom.
    Blanks for the bread in the mold
  • Send the molds to a warm place for the future bread to proof.
    The dough that came up
  • Brush the surface of the risen dough with a mixture of water and vegetable oil in a 3:1 ratio and sprinkle with the remaining seeds.
    Greasing loaves
  • To prevent the seeds from falling off too much, they can be added 5-10 minutes before readiness, after first brushing the surface of the bread with an egg and milk mixture.
    Greasing loaves
  • Bake the products for about half an hour in an oven preheated to 190℃.
    Baked bread
  • Cool the finished bread on a rack, wooden board, or towel. If left in the mold, the bottom will become soggy.
    A cold loaf of bread
  • Slices of fresh, golden bread with seeds and sesame are suitable for both first and second courses, as well as a base for sandwiches.
