Winni Recipes | Light-As-Air Seed Bread



· 2 cups (240g) King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour

· 1 cup (163g) King Arthur Semolina Flour

· 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (255g) lukewarm water

· 1 tablespoon garlic oil or olive oil

· 1 1/4 teaspoons (8g) salt

· 2 tablespoons (14g) King Arthur Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk

· 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast


1 tablespoon King Arthur Artisan Bread Topping or King Arthur The Works Bread Topping, or your favorite seed mixture


1. Weigh your flour; or measure it by gently spooning it into a cup, then sweeping off any excess. Combine all the bread ingredients, mixing and kneading to make a smooth, slightly sticky dough.

2. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap or your favorite reusable wrap, and set it aside to rise for 1 hour; it should just about double in bulk.

3. Lightly grease the bottom part of a long covered stoneware baker, about 14 1/2" x 5". (For other pan options see "tips," below.) Sprinkle it with cornmeal or semolina.

4. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased work surface and form it into a smooth 13" log.

5. Place the log in the pan, brush the top with water, and sprinkle with Artisan Bread Topping, The Works Bread Topping, or your favorite seeds.

6. Cover the pan with its lid, and let the dough rise for 45 to 60 minutes. Check it occasionally to see where it's at; when ready to bake, it should have started to fill the pan side to side and crowned about 1" over the rim.

7. Just before putting the loaf into the oven, slash the top several times, if desired. Hold your knife at a 45° angle to the dough's surface, and slice quickly and decisively, about 1/2" deep.
