Pumpkin seed Loaf

28 Oct


250 gram of spelt flour

100 grams of course wheat flour

150 grams of Rye flour

4 dl of warm water

50 grams of dry yeast

2 tbsp of olive/walnut oil

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

This is about as Halloweeny I am going to be getting this year in terms of cooking except for the fact that I will be getting dressed up and have a few drinks! I have recently been starting to bake my own bread, one of the reasons being that the bread in Spain is not great and also its very hard to find bread that doesn’t contain lots of wheat. It is incredibly satisfying eating your own creation and the baking process is secretly therapeutic…..


Start by mixing the dry yeast in the warm water in a big bowl until fully dissolved, then add the flour, pumpkin seeds (leave some for the topping) and the oil and start mixing all together. need the dough for at least 7 minutes until it all comes together and if necessary use extra flour if the dough is too sticky.

Leave in a warm place, cover with a kitchen towel and leave to rest for 30 minutes.

Get a bread form ready and move the dough, make sure its even in the form. Sprinkle your pumpkin seeds on top, and leave to rest covered with a kitchen towel somewhere warm for about 45 min. While the bread in rising put the oven on 200 C so its nice and warm for the bread.

Let the bread bake in the middle of the oven for 40-5 minutes, and Voila you have a home-baked bread!

Love from me xx
