This really is great bread. I half this recipe and make it weekly and we all really enjoy it. It is simple to make as I omit a few steps - I let my Kitchen Aid mixer to do most the work. I dissolve the sugar in 1/2 cup warm water and let the yeast rise in it for 10 min. In the mixer I add the remaining ingredients (3 cups of flour initially)mix it all up with the blending hook, add the yeast, it's been 10 min. by now, change the hook to the dough hook, add the remaining 2.5 cups of flour and walk away for 10 min. while the mixer kneads the dough. This makes 2 nice loaves of bread. I let it rise in the oven with light on for 2 - 3 hours then turn the oven on to 350 and let it bake for 25. It always turns out great and with all the ommited steps, it seriously takes 20 min. (don't tell my husband, he thinks it's a major process : ) ) **also, I leave out the sunflower seeds only because it's not something we generally have on hand**
