1. Sift flours, raising agents and salt together. Stir in the nuts and sunflower seeds.
2. Mix the milk, yoghurt, honey and sunflower oil together. ( Usually I do this in a measuring jug.)
Stir into the dry ingredients and mix to form a soft dough.
3. Spoon the batter into the prepared tin and smooth to level the top.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 1 hour until goldenand risen. the bread is ready when its edges shrink from the sides of the tin
Replace the nuts and sunflower seeds with 3tblsps each of sesame and poppy seeds.
Replace nuts and seeds with 2tsps dried herbs and top the loaf with 3tblsps grated Cheddar or other strong cheese.
Just use half and half oatmeal and plain flour and leave out nuts and seeds.
