Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside.

  • In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, brown sugar, whole wheat flour, the 1/2 cup sunflower kernels, the flaxseed meal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl beat egg with a fork; stir in buttermilk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).

  • Spoon batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle with additional sunflower kernels. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

To make 1 1/4 cups sour milk, place 4 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 1/4 cups total liquid; stir. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.
