Easy to prepare homemade bread with sunflower seeds and turmeric spice – no more excuses to not have fresh homemade bread on a Sunday morning ;)


  • 1.5 oz. (42g) fresh yeast
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups (370ml) lukewarm water
  • 7 oz. (200g) all-purpose flour
  • 10.5 oz. (300g) rye flour
  • 2 tsp. bread spice with turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil


  1. Crumble the fresh yeast and add together with the sugar to the lukewarm water – mix until dissolved completely. Let foam up for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile grease and dust a loaf pan (10×5 inches /25x13cm) with flour and set aside.
  2. Mix the all-purpose flour with the rye flour, bread spice, salt, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Add the yeast water and oil and mix for about 10 minutes until you get a nice smooth dough – if the dough is too sticky, add some more flour. Place the dough in the prepared loaf pan, cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for about 40 minutes in a warm place.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). Add a heatproof bowl with water to the oven to create some steam while baking the bread. Cut the risen bread loaf with a sharp knife in several places, place in the middle of the oven and bake for 5 Minutes. Reduce the heat to 350°F (180°C) and bake for 50-55 minutes more. The bread should develop a nice crust and sound hollow when you know on it with a finger. Take the bread out of the oven and let cool down on a wire rack. Serve cooled or slightly warm.


  • Enjoy baking!
