- 1/2 yeast + ¼ cup of water
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
The process of making this bread is a bit longer than expected, but it’s pretty easy.
At first, soak the wheat in water for 3 days, until it begins to germinate. Change the water occasionally, to prevent spoilage of the grains.
After three days, strain the wheat, and mix it in a blender until becomes similar to dough. Then presoak the barley flakes in warm water, and add them to the mixture.
Pour the sunflower, flax and sesame seeds directly into a dry frying pan, and gently fry them, don’t let them burn. Then add them to the mixture.
In a ¼ cup of water, stir in half of the fresh yeast with a spoon of sugar. When the yeast grows a little, add it to the mixture and knead bread hands. There is no need to add water. Lastly, add a teaspoon of salt and let it stand for at least 30 minutes.
Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 220 Celsius (428 Fahrenheit) degrees. Add a couple of ice cubes in the oven to create steam, thus will raise the bread a little more. Bake the bread for 45 to 50 minutes.
