Wow, it took me two days but well worth it! It's probably my own starter but I had to give it lots of time to rise, plus we live on the northcoast so I had to set it by the wood stove to get it to rise. I used toasted, salted pumpkin seeds instead of raw sunflower seeds and it added the missing salt. My family ate it all week and left the store bought bread alone. The next weeks batch, I experimented adding an extra tablespoon of honey, an extra 1/2 tablespoon of molasses, 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, and a cup of chopped dried fruit; a mixture of raisins, dried cherries, cranberries and dates to total 2 cups of fruit and nuts. Rather then using loaf pans I put the dough in grapefruit sized balls for the final rise and ended up with 5 beautiful 'breakfast fruit and nut' round loaves that go into the toaster perfectly. Can't wait for the next combination to this great base recipe.
