Star bread


It has been a long time since I made this bread. It's a shame since it's quick to make and absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy with tons of seeds in it. You could easily say that you are eating seeds with a little bit of  bread. I used sunflower, pumpkin, hemp and sesame seed in no particular proportion, just grab whichever seeds you have available.

This Dr Oetker star shape tube is inexpensive, but I am not sure about it's availability, besides I think that shaping the dough into a small roll or using a muffin tray for this recipe could not go wrong.

Star bread

Preheat the oven to 190 C/ 375 F/ gas mark 5

150 gr flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
75 g cottage or similar soft cheese
50 ml milk
50 ml oil
100 g sunflower and pumpkin seeds ( or any other of your liking)

Combine the flour with baking powder, add the rest of the ingredients, except for the seeds and mix until you get a smooth dough. Do not knead the dough until the end or it will become sticky. Knead the seeds in on a lightly floured surface and shape into a 22 cm long roll. If you have the star shaped tube, grease it and sprinkle with poppy seeds, then push the roll in. If not, sprinkle and bake using the regular baking tray.
Bake for 35 minutes, then allow to cool on a wire rack.
