I’m all about a seeded, grainy bread, and this Crunchy Seed Braid from King Arthur fit the bill better than I could have imagined. White whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and King Arthur’s Harvest Grains Blend give this bread lots of taste and texture.
This was another virtual baking session with my friend Michele, who also gets credit for suggesting this recipe. Thanks Michele! This one is a keeper.
- Instead of mixed seeds, I used all sesame seeds on top, because a) That’s what I had on hand and b) I love sesame seeds.
- I have a bag of King Arthur’s Harvest Grains Blend, but if you don’t want to buy it, take a look at the ingredients – I bet you could mix up your own.
- Instead of using an egg wash to get the seeds to stick, I followed this method from King Arthur (but I rolled the dough to the length stated in the Crunchy Seed Braid recipe). It worked great!
- This baked and browned more quickly than the recipe stated. Keep an eye on it, and be ready to top it with a foil tent to keep it from over-browning.
