Flax Sesame Yeast Bread

Recipe by Red Hook
READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Heat up a small bowl (I just run hot water over it). Put the honey, brown sugar, water into bowl and sprinkle yeast in and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix all dry ingredients well in large bowl and then mix in butter (I did this with my hands -- it was fun!).
  • Make a well in the center and pour yeast mixture into it, then stir well.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead lightly for 5-7 minutes, incorporating the extra flour bit by bit. Add as little possible flour to work with it, the dough will feel semi-sticky.
  • Knead into a ball and set in a large greased bowl and turn to grease the dough. Let rise 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough and shape into loaf (knead lightly). Put into lightly greased loaf pan and let rise 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° until internal temperature is 180°-190° (about 45 minutes). Temperature is very important when making yeast bread so make sure you use a thermometer whenever a temperature is listed, and a temperature gauge for your oven is ideal as well. My oven heats a whole 100° more than the dial says!
