Introduction

Amazing dense bread Amazing dense bread
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 cup warm water (by CTRYAN5733)
    5.25 cup Organic Spelt Flour (by RAMARTERRE)
    3.5 tsp Active Dry Yeast (by GRTMOMX3)
    2.5 tsp Salt
    2 tbsp Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar
    .5 cup, hulled Sunflower Seeds, without salt
    0.5 cup Pumpkin seeds
    8 tbsp Flax Seed, Cold Milled Golden Flax Seed by Flax USA

Tips

60 minutes for rising


Directions

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in about 1/2 cup of the water (no need to be exact, you will be adding the rest of the water shortly).
Let that rest for a few minutes while you grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Sift the flour and salt into the bowl. Add all remaining ingredients (rest of the water, vinegar, and seeds), and mix until a relatively smooth dough is formed. Mine was still a touch sticky, but still able to be handled and formed without completely sticking to my fingers.
Form the dough into a loaf shape that will fit end to end in your pan. I just sort of shape it, and then roll it a few times on the counter to make it look a little nicer and be the right length.
Lightly cover the loaf with saran wrap or a tea towel, and let it rise in a relatively warm, draft-free place, for about an hour to an hour and a half. It should double in size and fill out the pan nicely.
Preheat your oven to 480F (250C). Bake the loaf for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 390F (200C), and bake it for another 45 minutes.
Remove the loaf from the pan (it should pop right out), and knock on the bottom. If it genuinely sounds hollow, then it is done. If you think it needs a little more time, pop it back in the oven and bake it for longer as needed. My loaf was done after the initial hour, but you may need another 10-20 minutes, depending on moisture and such.
Preparation time: 15 minute(s) + 60 minutes for rising time
