Sunflowerseed curd cheese bread


I planed to bake Bäcker Süpkes Pumpkinseedbread last weekend, but when I take out the pumpkinseed tin there was nearly no pumpkinseeds left. I think I know the person how eat the seeds (it is not so hard to guess in a two person household :-D). Because it was sunday, I had no change to get new pumpkin seeds.

Luckily I had enough sunflower seeds, so I bake a sunflower seed bread instead. I increased both the amount of sunflowerseeds and of sesame and left out the nutmeg (well, I forget it, to be honest) and use only wheat and no spelt.

At the end it is now a Sunflowerseed-curd cheese-bread inspired by Bäcker Süpke instead of his Pumpkinseed bread.

    Deine Version war sicher auch sehr lecker.
    Ich habe am WE das Originalrezept nachgebacken und war/bin davon sehr angetan, kann es also sehr empfehlen. Das Brot mit mehr Sonnenblumenkernen zu backen ist auch eine gute Idee.

    Keeping pumpkin seeds around is always a challenge in my house too. Improvisation is good! I think the cheese would give this loaf a very nice texture.

    Na also, wieder ein Brot bei dem ich ein Restchen verbrauchen kann. Dieses mal also den Quarkrest. Das Brot gibts dann am Dienstag beim “Frauenfrühstück”. Danke für den Sauerteig. Er ist gefüttert und fühlt sich sehr wohl bei mir. 🙂
