TWD: Baking With Julia – Sesame Semolina Bread

Sesame Semolina Bread from My Baking Heart

While this loaf requires quite a bit of rising time (6+ hours), it’s most certainly an easy one to put together. Just a bit of yeast, a few cups of flour, a little water, salt and olive oil and that’s it! I did take a little bit of liberty and add the sesame seeds to the top. Just mist the loaf with water and sprinkle them over before placing in the oven to bake. Once ready, it reminded me of the Sesame Semolina that Panera Bread uses on their Napa Almond Chicken Salad sandwich. Delicious!

And for yesterday’s breakfast? It was absolutely wonderful toasted… as a side to an egg-white omelette and freshly sliced peaches. Lucky for me, there’s 3/4 of the loaf left! ūüėČ

This was a yummy loaf, we loved it! The addition of sesame seeds is a great idea.

Most of us liked this, Jessica, although I admit to it being somewhat “plain and unassuming”. But I loved the color, pale but warm, huh? Like your sesame seeds. Unfortunately, for my hips, I love it as toast, sandwiches, and just because and have eaten 3/4 of the loaf so far. Yours looks beautiful.

I really wish I had tried some of this toasted – it looks like perfect toast bread.
