Soft American-Style White Bread with SEEDS

I made soft American-Style white bread in abin5 page 204 with a different twist on the recipe.

For 1 big loaf I reduced the recipe in 1/2 and then changed the flour to fresh ground white wheat and half recipe would have been 3 1/2 cups flour but I used only 2 3/4 cups. Then fresh ground seeds(not completely to powder). About a tablespoon of each = Dill, poppy, sunflower nuts, flax seed, fennel, caraway seed, sesame, and not ground but pieces of walnuts.

Let rise for 2 hours.
2hours
risen

Used fresh dough and put in greased bread pan and let rise 40 minutes.
resting

Brushed to top of the loaf with melted butter and poked the top with toothpick instead of slashing the top.

Baked in the oven 350 degrees for 45 minutes and tested the bread for 200 degrees before taking out of the oven.
ready

I let the bread cool before slicing and entering my mouth!!! LOL This bread was sooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooooood!!!

Here is the crumb and close up of seeds!
