  • 3 1/3 cups spelt flour
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water


  • Mix all the ingredients (first dry then add in the wet ones) and knead by hand until a soft dough forms or put all the ingredients in a bread baking machine or kitchen machine and let the machine knead the dough for you. Let it sit covered until it doubles in size (about 1-2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 500°F/250°C.
  • Cut the dough in two equal pieces and form the loaves.
  • Carve the surface of the dough lightly with a knife. I made a long vertical cut and many horizontal ones.
  • Let it rise again for about 20 minutes.
  • Then put the bread in the oven and take it out when it looks done. (I've had mine in the oven for 25 minutes!) You can knock on the bottom of the bread and when it sounds hollow it's done!


How long the bread needs to be in the oven depends on the form you're making. Loaves need about 20-30 minutes, rolls 15-20 minutes.
