White Sesame Bread

Angel told me she loved sesame bread, appealed by the nutty fragrance.  It was last Friday.  We had not met for a year.  The reunion dinner was cosy and full of laughter.  She is always funny.  If you want to be serious, she can.  She is a teacher of psychology and can be very intellectual.  It is pleasant to spend time with her, true always.

OK, let’s try out sesame bread.  It’s quite easy, and of course, tasty.  The ingredients are similar to that of Kaiser broechen. I ate /shared it plain, with butter and in a way of bruschetta.  Yum!  Fresh tomato mingled with fragnant wheat, garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar!

100g old bread dough (from freezer)
360g French bread flour
40g whole wheat flour
260g water
1.6g instant dry yeast
8g salt
8g butter

Defrost the bread dough at room temperature.  Mix it with the different flours, water and yeast.

Knead the dough.  When it is well mixed, add salt.  Once blended, add the butter.

Continue to knead for 8 to 10 minutes.

Go for first fermentation. Let it rest for about 1 hour

Punch the dough down.  Cut it into 3 pieces, each weighs about 270g

Let it rest for 15 minutes

Shape the bread and go for the second fermantation, 45 minutes

Dash water or egg white on the dough surface.  Sprinkle white sesame (roasted)

Bake at 220C for about 25 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes.  Yeah, fresh bread in house! Superb!
