  • ½ Cup sunflower seeds
  • 45ml Vegetable oil

Instructions
  1. Honey and oat bread is absolutely outstanding, with a magnificent texture, superb oven spring and a flavor from heaven. It is really simple to make as long as you stick to the steps and timings.
  2. To start, dissolve 80ml of honey in 520ml of warm water.
  3. Add 10g of instant yeast and stir this in briefly.
  4. Cover the mixture and allow this to activate for 20 minutes.
  5. While the yeastmixture stands, measure 850g of all-purpose flour and pour this into your stand mixer bowl.
  6. Add 3 quarters of a cup of rolled oats and a half cup of sunflower seeds to the flour.
  7. In addition, you need 2 and a half teaspoons salt.
  8. Once the yeast has activated it will be very frothy. Add 45ml of cooking oil to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  9. Pour this into the mixer bowl.
  10. Fit the dough hook and close the mixer.
  11. Knead the dough for 12 minutes on medium slow speed.
  12. Once kneading has completed remove the bowl from mixer, cover with cling-wrap and allow the dough to rise for 60 minutes in a warm place.
  13. After rising, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it briefly to knock it down.
  14. Weigh the dough and divide it into 2 equal portions.
  15. Working with one piece at a time, flatten the dough into a large oval shape.
  16. Fold the top edge down two thirds of the way. Fold the bottom edge up over this.
  17. Repeat this with the second loaf.
  18. Wipe the insides of 2 medium size loaf tins with oiled kitchen paper.
  19. Transfer the loaves to the tins and press them into the tins firmly.
  20. Cover the bread loosely with cling-wrap and allow this to rise for a further 30 minutes in a warm place.
  21. Halfway through this time, preheat your oven to 180c or 350f.
  22. Brush the loaves with beaten egg and sprinkle the loaves liberally with more rolled oats.
  23. Bake the loaves for 40 to 45 minutes until golden and they sound hollow when tapped.
  24. Remove the loaves from the oven and allow them to cool in the tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
  25. And there we have it... the perfect bread, with a lovely crispy crust, great texture, superb aroma and amazing taste.
