Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Time allowed for bread to rise 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 50 minutes


  • 190 g brown rice flour
  • 50 g millet flakes or quinoa flakes or buckwheat flakes
  • 110 g buckwheat flour or tapioca flour
  • 25 g psyllium husks
  • 50 g mixed seeds pumpkin, sunflower, sesame
  • 1 level tsp baking power
  • 1 rounded tsp Himalayian salt
  • 7 g small packet freeze dried yeast
  • 4 large eggs organic or free range if possible
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp molasses or honey
  • 275 ml tepid water
  • 2 tbsp natural yoghurt or soya yoghurt


  • Place all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl apart from the yeast, quickly mix together with your hands. Mix together the yeast, water, oil, molasses and yoghurt.
  • Whisk eggs together, add to yeast mixture then add slowly to the flours, holding a little back. Beat well for 2-3 minutes. The right mixture is quite wet and will resemble a very thick batter.
  • Spoon into lined loaf tin and cover with damp parchment, then by a damp cloth and lightly cling. Sit in a warm area of kitchen or hot-press or radiator for 40 minutes – 1 hour. The bread should rise somewhat. Place in oven at 170C. Bake approx 50 minutes or until cooked.

Maggie's Tips

To vary this bread:
  • Omit seeds and replace with pistachio nuts or walnuts or chopped pecans.
  • Omit molasses and seeds, replace with 3 tbsp tomato puree and 2 tsp toasted fennel seeds.
  • Omit molasses and seeds, replace with 50g dried fruits. Use any of the following combinations: (figs, sultanas, currents, diced dates, cranberries, sour cherries).
  • Use honey instead of molasses. Replace seeds with 2 tbsp chopped rosemary + 60g dried cranberries (lovely combination at Christmas)
  • Omit molasses and seeds. Replace seeds with 1 tbsp rosemary, a few baby spinach leaves, ½ roasted red pepper roughly chopped
  • Omit molasses and seeds, replace with 2 slices cooked rashers, finely diced, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme and 50g good quality cheddar cheese.
