    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    From the Food and Cooking of Spain, Africa and the Middle East, posted for ZWT3. Especially good for serving with tagines or stews with lots of liquid that needs sopping up. I'm sure it would work well made with all white flour instead of the white/whole wheat blend. Prep time includes rising time.

      Just pulled these 2 lovely loaves out of the oven about 20 minutes ago. I cut DH and myself each a wedge, and they are really wonderful. They went together quickly and easily. I served it with "Tomato Spinach Slow Cooker Soup - 0 Points". Will definately make this bread again. Thank you for sharing. I made this for the Healthy Choices ABC tag.

      We ran out of bread and I was too lazy to go to the grocery just to get one hence I made this. I followed your recipe as is and since the color of the sesame seeds weren't specified, I used the black ones :D and as the recipe stated, keep adding flour until it becomes elastic so I might have added another 1/2 cup. At first I was afraid that I was gonna fail at this one since the outer part seems to be crusty thus making me think the insides might be hard too. But lo and behold, when I sliced it, the insides were so soft with the texture of a pita bread. It's just so delicious! DH and I ate this as is while still fresh from the oven and then some of it, I used as a base for Asparagus and Corn Bake. Thanks! Made for Recipe Swap #15.

      For the mixed milk I used just the ask for amount of skim milk without adding water. Aside from that I followed the directions and got 2 lovely bread loaves that rose beautifully. It tastes wonderful and I'm now craving a tagine with a lot of good juice. I sorry that I didn't get a pic patti, my photo area has been overtaken with an air compressor and things that belong in the garage today (men!). Anyway, The recipe works like a charm, is not difficult to make and tastes wonderful. What more could you ask for?
