Sourdough Sunflower Bread


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 2 cups proofed sourdough starter
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seed
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white bread flour

Directions

  • Measure all ingredients into bread machine pan, in order that they are listed.
  • Set machine for dough cycle and start.
  • At end of dough cycle, remove dough to lightly floured surface and shape into loaf.
  • Place in greased loaf pan, cover and let rise until bread is 1 to 2 inches above edges of pan.
  • Be patient, sourdough without the addition of commercial yeast can take up to several hours to rise.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 to 50 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
  • Top can be brushed with butter for a soft crust, if desired.
  • NOTE: To proof your starter, feed it with equal parts of flour and lukewarm water, then let it sit overnight or up to 12 hours, covered.
  • This is what develops the characteristic sour flavor and the longer the proof, the sourer it will be.
  • If you start with 1 cup of starter and feed it 1 cup each of water and flour, you should have enough to make your bread and save the rest to start your next batch.
