Open Sesame


You won’t need a magical phrase to open your mouth for this bread. Toasted sesame seeds in a soft semolina crumb make for an envious loaf. Luckily, this one will be long gone before anyone has a chance to steal it. The Baker’s Percentage for this bread is as follows:

Total Flour                           1,000 g                        100%

White Flour                            500 g                          50%

Durum Flour                          500 g                          50%

Toasted Sesame Seeds          125 g                        12.5%

Levain                                      200 g                          20%

Water                                       700 g                          70%

Salt                                             20 g                             2%

At least an hour before you mix the dough, toast the sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat until they turn light brown. Throw them in at the Mix and continue on through the Bake.

Another great sandwich bread with loads of flavor and a nice crunch. Especially good with goat cheese and roasted red peppers. Open says me!
