TAHİNLİ & SUSAMLI EKMEK



































TAHINI & SESAME SEEDS BREAD

This bread is one of my made up recipes but it turned out pretty well. It started with the idea of making my bread more nutritious. It is also good if your little ones don't like drinking milk. Sesame seeds ( as well as tahini ) is a good source of calcium. I suggest you to eat this bread when it is fresh; it smells heavenly...

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1+1/2 cups of warm water
  • 5 tbsp of tahini
  • 1/2 cup of sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp of granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of yeast
In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients. Add tahini and warm water into this mixture and knead. The dough should be soft. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place for rising. Let the dough rises to double its size. Take the bowl and knead the dough again until it is bubble free. Place a parchment paper on a baking tray. Give the dough a round shape. Then take a sharp knife and give the dough the shapes you desire. Sprinkle some flour on top. Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Let rise the dough for half an hour. Bake it for 30 minutes or the color of bread turns brown. Take the bread out of the oven let it cool for 20 minutes and fold it with a clean kitchen towel to keep it soft.

    This bread looks amazing! I have never thought to put tahini IN bread, although I often have it ON bread. What a fantastic recipe! Thank you!

    Thank you for the recipe for a fragrant sesame bread. It is (was rather ...) delicious. The bread and raspberry jam is simply fantasy.
    Dziękuję...
