Seeded Cob Loaf


  •   50 g whole wheat
  •   50 g quinoa
  •   50 g buckwheat
  •   30 g fresh yeast
  •   300 g water
  •   20 g raw honey
  •   30 g spelt flakes, plus a little extra
  •   250 g bakers flour
  •   1 tsp Pink salt flakes
  •   1 Handful pecans, shelled
  •   2 tbsp chia seeds
  •   2 tbsp linseeds
  •   2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  •   2 tbsp sesame seeds
  •   Water for brushing
  •   Pizza stone


  1. Place wheat, quinoa and buckwheat into Thermo bowl and mill 1 min/speed 10.

  2. Remove from bowl and set aside.

  3. Place yeast, water and honey into Thermo bowl and warm 2 min/37ºC/speed 1.

  4. Add milled grains, spelt flakes and bakers flour and salt to bowl and mix 6 sec/speed 6. Add pecans and knead 2 min/Interval.

  5. Tip dough out onto floured board over which you have sprinkled a handful of spelt flakes. Knead by hand, into a tight ball, incorporating all the spelt. Place onto a piece of baking paper and prove in warm draft free place (in winter, a closed car is perfect, just don’t forget it!!)

  6. Meanwhile, preheat the pizza stone in a bread baking setting in your oven if you have one, at 220ºC. When bread has risen, slash a large cross on the top of the dough, brush with water and then sprinkle with seeds, making sure they attach. Bake for 20 minutes until sounding hollow when tapped.
