  1. Sift the flour and place it in a bowl, along with the baking soda and salt. Add the seeds, honey and sparkling water. Be careful, honey should be liquid, not candied. Knead a soft dough and then knead it for another 5 minutes. If necessary, add more flour. The dough should not stick to your hands.

    Shape it into a ball shape. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.

  2. Put it in a cast iron pan with a diameter of 25 cm (or a tray with a non-stick coating) on baking paper. Sprinkle with flour and with a kitchen knife make a cross, with a depth of at least 1 cm. Bake in a preheated oven at 220 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 180 degrees and bake for another 45 minutes.
