Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bake the deseeded buttercup for approx 30 mins or until soft. Once cooked and cooled, peel off the skin and roughly chop. In a large mixing bowl mash the buttercup. Stir in the eggs, honey, oil and spices.

Gently mix in the flour and seeds until just combined.

Line a loaf or rectangular slice tin with baking paper and pour in the mixture. Cover the top with extra seeds.

Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on the type of tin used. Bake for longer for a deeper loaf tin. Check by inserting a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean it is done.
