Rye Bread

This is a very easy and healthy bread that I bake once a week. It is a mix of half rye, half wheat flour made with yeast. I play around with different kinds of flours or replace part of the flour with oats. Instead of sugar honey or molasses works well. I also replaced the sunflower seeds by walnuts or added a variety of seeds, like sesame, sunflower and poppy seeds.


  • 500g rye flour
  • 250g whole wheat flour
  • 250g white flour
  • 100g sunflower seeds
  • 4 tsp. quick rise yeast
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 800ml warm water.


Mix all dry ingredients, add water and knead until soft. Let the dough rise for about an hour. Form a loaf and put it into a greased loaf pan. Cut a slash in the middle and bake at 425°F for 40 minutes.
