Seed Bread with Sun-Dried Tomato

I know it’s a little soon for another bread recipe , but John was in the mood to make some Seed Bread with Sun-Dried Tomato, so we got out the bread machine, and went to town.  This recipe is very versatile , sometimes we add raisins, or maybe some black olives.  We also doubled the original recipe so we can freeze  a few little loaves.

After a week of rainy weather , the sun has finally decided to come out here again, so time to pack up a few sandwiches and head out for a nice little hike.  Looks like a good mental health day to me . Life is short my friends, take time to walk somewhere, and you will actually see things in Real Time , Enjoy!

It’s all about the dough…………  fun to play with and you can eat it too !

~Seed Bread with Sun-Dried Tomato~


  • 2½ cups (625 mL) warm water
  • 4 tbsp(30mL) olive oil
  • 2 tsp(10mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp(30mL) sugar
  • 4 cups(512 g ) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup(250mL) rye flour

  • 2 tsp(10mL) salt
  • 4 tsp(20mL) yeast
  • 1 cup(250 mL) seed mixture ( flax, raw sunflower, raw pumpkin, etc) of your choice
  • ½ cup (125 mL) sun-dried tomatoes , dried , not in oil, chopped into pieces


Put all ingredients into bread machine , in order , saving the seeds , and sun -dried tomatoes to add during the final mixing cycle.  If you forget you can manually knead the seeds in after .  Put bread machine on dough cycle, then take out of machine put into a well greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth.  Place into a proofing oven ( preheat oven to 200° then turn it off ) let dough rise about 30-45 minutes.  Take out of proofing oven, and place dough on lightly floured surface, and cut into 4 equal portions, shape into balls and roll into ablong shapes, make a few little slices in top with a sharp knife, and place them onto a greased baking sheet 3 inches or more apart and back at 375° oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown .  Remove bread and place on cooling racks.

Makes 4 nice little loaves and  is superb for sandwiches.

This is a general recipe for the seed bread John makes,  you can make with or without the sun-dried tomatoes, or they can be substitued for raisins, or black olives .
