For this Molasses Mulit-seed Bread I turned (again!) to the recipes on the King Arthur Flour website. Their recipes are always and when I am trying something new I feel confident in sampling a different technique or combination of flavors under their guidance. This month both the strong flavor of molasses and the heavy dose of seeds were new to me and the recipe for Molasses Multi-seed Bread was spot-on. You can use any type of seeds that you’d like; here I used pumpkin seeds instead of the sunflower seeds in the recipe along with poppy seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds. This Molasses Multi-seed Bread is a rich, flavorful bread. It is hearty enough to stand up to sandwich-making yet simple enough to enjoy with a pat of softened butter.
The recipe was explained so well on the King Arthur Flour site that I will simply list their ingredients here and provide the link to the full recipe. Happy Baking!
