Use your loaf








This bread is ridiculously easy to make and comes from the lovely people at my favourite bakery and chocolate shop: Cocomaya. It requires no more effort than simply mixing together copious amounts of uber healthy seeds, some wholemeal flour, buttermilk, honey and whacking in the oven. You can then have it simply toasted and buttered or jazzed up with some sumac cream cheese and smoked salmon…

For the loaf: Makes one 18cm seeded loaf
55g whole meal flour
55g white bread flour
5g baking powder
5g salt
35g oat flakes
20g sesame seeds
20g poppy seeds
20g sunflower seeds
20g linseeds
170g buttermilk
15g sunflower oil
50g golden syrup


Handful of extra seeds for the top
To finish:
75g smoked salmon
6 slices seeded loaf
Sumac cream cheese
For the sumac cream cheese:
200g cream cheese
3tbsp double cream
1tsp ground sumac powder
1/2tsp mint chopped
2tsp red onion finely diced
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4tsp salt

For the seeded loaf:

Pre heat the oven to 180 C, 160 C for a fan assisted oven, gas mark 4.  Spray and line the long sides and the bottom of an 18cm loaf tin with silicone baking paper.   In a large bowl combine the flours, baking powder, salt, oat flakes and all the seeds In a different owl mix together all the wet ingredients.  Make a well in the centre if the flour and pour in the wet ingredients, mixing quickly with a large fork to form a soft dough.   Pour the batter into the prepared tin and sprinkle with some seeds.   Bake for 60minutes in the pre-heated oven until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the loaf.   Remove from the oven and let cool for a while before unmoulding.  Leave to cool completely before slicing

For the sumac cream cheese

In a mixing bowl soften the cream cheese with the double cream to a more spreadable consistency.  Mix in the rest of the ingredients.  Check for seasoning, you might need some more salt and lemon juice

To Finish:

Lay the slices of seeded bread on your chopping board and spread a layer of sumac cheese on each slice.  Divide the smoked salmon between three slices and cover with the remaining slices of bread. Then eat heartily….
