2 cups whole-wheat bread flour
1 cup regular cake flour
½ cup ground flax seed (I measured ½ cup of seeds and tossed it in an old coffee grinder, which I use to grind all my spices or seeds to a powder)
½ – 1 teaspoon salt ****
½ – 1 teaspoon sugar
8g packet quick-rise instant yeast
500ml lukewarm water
Combine all the dry ingredients.
Add the water and mix thoroughly.
Set aside to rise and double in volume.
Use a wooden spoon to pat it down.
Place dough in your bread pan and let it rise again.
‘Paint’ the top with water and sprinkle with coarse salt. If you decide to add coarse salt, you may wish to leave out the salt in the dough – you decide, or just use ½ teaspoon of salt in the dough. ****
If you do not use the coarse salt, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of flax seed (or use both), just because you can!
Bake for ±50-60 minutes at 350oF or until a tester comes out clean.
