|As well as devising cake and biscuit recipes, Carol Kearns - who does the rather nice illustrations for our packaging - has developed this fabulous seeded loaf recipe using Hodmedod’s British grown and milled Fava Bean Flour with optional Camelina and Chia seeds.|
I’ve taken to adding some toasted Fava Bean Flour to all my bread recipes as it works brilliantly as a flour improver. This bread is really delicious and I love the fact that the seeds and the bean flour all add to its nutritional value.
A chunk of this seeded loaf goes really well with a bowl of soup in the winter, while in the summer months it’s perfect with salads. I like to make it for a party buffet or to take on a picnic as it looks so attractive with its topping of toasted seeds.
Using fast action dried yeast this recipe is super easy to make and only requires one proving. I often double the quantity to make one loaf for now and one loaf for the freezer where it keeps for up to a month.

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
