|Sarah and Aitana make this rye loaf every week. It’s wonderfully simple but utterly delicious with both sweet and savoury meal. They like it best toasted, spread thickly with home-made jam and salted butter or with scrambled eggs. But it goes well with just about anything.
The high sourdough starter content means this loaf stays moist for ages - if you can resist eating it. The nuttiness of the hemp and linseeds combines beautifully with the earthiness of the camelina and rye but feel free to add whichever seeds you fancy. And once you get the hang of it, you can experiment by adding delights such as sprouted grains or dried fruit and nuts.
