  • 500 g Wheat flour type 550
  • 1 packet Dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 250 ml Lukewarm water
  • 4 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Water for brushing
  • 20 g Peeled sesame seeds to sprinkle on top


  • First toast the sesame seeds in a pan without fat. Put in a bowl and let cool.
  • Put the flour in a mixing bowl and mix with the yeast. Then add sugar, salt, water, olive oil and work with the dough hook briefly on low, then on high for about 5 minutes to form a dough. Finally knead in the roasted sesame seeds. Now cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place until it has visibly enlarged, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 180-200 ° C O / U heat.
  • Grease a loaf pan about 30x11cm.
  • Dust the nicely risen dough with flour, take it out of the bowl and knead briefly on a floured work surface. Put the dough in the prepared loaf pan and let rise for another 30 minutes. It should open again nicely.
  • Then brush the surface of the dough with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes.
  • Then place the tin on a wire rack and let it cool down briefly. Then remove the bread from the mold and let it cool down completely.
