Making bread at home was all the rage during the 1970s when plain bread was considered out of style. After years of bleaching flour, milling companies began marketing some unbleached products. Sunflower seeds, wheat germ, and other seeds or nuts were stirred into dough for flavor and nutrition. This yeast bread recipe has citrus flavor and sunflower seeds for fresh taste and texture.
