Sesame Seed Bread (Bread Machine)

Recipe by CulinaryQueen
READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
YIELD: 1 Loaf




  • Place the first four ingredients into your bread machine pan in the order they are listed above.
  • Mix the flour with the seeds and pour into the pan, followed by the yeast.
  • Set the programme to 'DOUGH'.
  • When the cycle has finished, (my machine takes 90 minutes) transfer the dough to a floured surface, knead about 5 times then shape as you like (round, oval, loaf, etc.) Place the dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet and cover it with a piece of oiled cling film/plastic wrap. Leave it to prove until it has almost doubled in size (about an hour).
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400°F
  • Using the point of a sharp knife, cut 4-5 slashes in the loaf no more than 1/4 inch deep, making a simple design of your choice. (ex: / / / / or XXXX, etc.).
  • Brush the dough gently with the milk then sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until it has turned golden brown. Transfer the loaf to a wire rack and leave it to cool a little before slicing.
