This is a nice, wholesome flavored loaf for those who prefer a bit more texture in their breads.
1 packet active dry yeast
1 T Molasses
1/2 c warm water
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c shortening
1 1/2 cups buttermilk, at room temperature

1/4 c sorghum flour
1/4 c mixed seeds (you choose: caraway seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseed)
1/4 c Sunflower Seeds

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease two 8×4 inch loaf pans. In a small bowl, combine yeast, molasses and warm water.
Let sit for about 5 minutes, or until foamy.
In the bowl of your mixer, combine baking soda, salt, shortening, and buttermilk. Add yeast mixture.
Add flours and beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
Add seeds and sunflower seeds and stir until combined.
Spoon into greased loaf pans. Add optional seeds to top if desired and let rise in a warm, moist place about 30 minutes.
Bake for 35-55 minutes, or until loaves are very golden brown.
Turn onto a rack to cool completely. Loaf should sound hollow when you tap the crust.
