Seedy bread for beginners

A seedy bread that people who don't like seedy bread might like.

10g cumin
10g linseed
10g poppy
5g sesame
all dry fried     

400g strong white flour
50g wholemeal rye flour
4g salt
5g sesame oil

300g water
4g dried yeast

It was a mild humid day: this mix rose well between 1130 and 1530. Into the oven at 1700: 15 mins at 200C then 25 at 180C. Turned out nice: a light crumb, a bit of crunch in the crust, and a slightly subtle flavour (though cumin dominates).
