A wonderful bread for the bread machine that is so fantastic toasted. If you love sesame seeds, you'll love this! Use dried buttermilk instead of dried milk, if you can find it.

Complete disaster!! Bread collapsed on removing from bread pan, tasted horrible. Will not make again!-21 Oct 2014

by Mr. Marco Salmon

This is such a delicious bread recipe. Just a few minor substitutions on my part.. I couldn't find dry buttermilk powder at the store so I replaced it with plain milk powder. Also, I substituted wheat germ in place of the wheat bran as wheat bran is actually less nutritous than wheat germ. Toasting the sesame seeds is definetely a must for this recipe. (And I only use brown sesame seeds instead of white.) Good bread recipe!-02 Aug 2001

Greek Sesame Bread rings recipe (Koulouri Thessalonikis)

Incredibly crunchy on the outside with an amazingly soft and slightly chewy centre.. These delicious Greek bread rings covered with toasted sesame seeds are definitely the most popular street food one can find in Greece. And with good reason!

If you’ve ever found yourself walking the streets of Athens or Thessalonikis then you can’t have missed on all the street vendors selling these popular sesame bread rings. These famous Greek Koulouria are sold almost everywhere! On every street corner and every bakery, being probably the most popular breakfast for Greeks, along with a hot cup of Greek coffee (ellinikos Kafes) or a Frappe coffee.

Traditional Greek sesame-crusted bread rings can be served with either sweet or savoury accompaniments. I just love enjoying them with feta cheese or Graviera and Kalamata olives as a filling snack or cutting them in half crosswise, spreading with butter, honey or jam for breakfast. Simply delicious!

  • plain flour 500g
  • caster sugar 1 rounded tbsp
  • salt 1 tsp
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • milk 220ml-240ml
  • vegetable oil 4 tbsp
  • sesame seeds 8 tbsp, mixed black and white
  • butter 2 tbsp for serving


Sift the dry ingredients together. Mix the milk and oil. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid.

Slowly mix together the dough by working from the centre and incorporating the flour from the edges of the well so that you have a smooth, soft dough.

Knead well for 8-10 minutes, adding a little flour if the dough is too sticky. Put in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place to rest for 30 minutes.

so easy. Everytime I make it I get rave reviews!! Easy hint, use spatula to scrape out of breadmaker onto a heavily floured board. Then use a metal scraper to scrape/scoop/lift the floured dough into a rectangle and then plop onto a silpat/greased cookie sheet. This is a rustic bread so it will be chewy with large holes. You really can&apost use your hands, they&aposll goo up and you won&apost be able to handle it. Develop the lift and fold over technique with the scraper and it&aposll be a breeze. Read More

Milk Bread Honey Buns

These honey buns are extra special because the tangzhong makes them super light, fluffy and tender. Tangzhong is a Japanese technique that simply involves cooking a mixture of flour, water and milk to create a paste that is later added to the bread dough.

Make the Tangzhong: Add flour, water and milk to pan. Heat on medium heat, whisking constantly, until you achieve a thick, smooth paste.

Add the milk, egg, honey and salt to the Tangzhong. (Tip: whisk the egg with the milk before adding to the Tangzhong.) Blend together the flour and yeast. Add mixture to the mixer bowl and mix on medium-low speed until dough comes together.

Add softened (not melted!) butter, a small piece at at time, until fully incorporated. Turn mixer to medium speed and knead for 10 -15 minutes (mix times may vary) until dough comes together around the dough hook and is soft, shiny, and slightly tacky.

Transfer dough to an oiled bowl. Cover and let rise until almost doubled in size. After rising, place covered dough in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. This will allow for easier shaping.

Punch down dough, and turn out onto lightly greased counter. Divide dough into 16 equal pieces (about 60 grams each). Shape each piece into a tight round ball and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled and an indent remains after lightly touching dough with finger.

The Bread Bible's Honey Whole-Wheat Bread Recipe

A longtime cook and baker, Donna Currie has written equipment reviews and bread recipes for Serious Eats. She's also the author of the cookbook Make Ahead Bread.

The bread machine recipes in this book offer ingredient amounts for two different sized loaves—either 1 1/2 pounds or 1 pound. I opted to make the larger loaf (and those are the measurements listed in the recipe here).

It's nice to have the options, which makes it more flexible for people with different machines that make loaves of different sizes.

Since this book doesn't give weights for the flour, it's a bit of a leap of faith to add the ingredients, slam the lid shut, and hope that the hydration is correct. Bread machine recipes are easy, but not foolproof. I was pleased that this worked on the first try.

What Worked: This was a fluffy and flavorful loaf that rose nicely and worked well in the bread machine.

What Didn't: Even with the crust setting on Light, the crust got a little browner than I'd prefer on the bottom and sides. Not a deal-breaker, and a different bread machine might have a different result.

Suggested Tweaks: Next time I'd cut back a little bit on the honey and perhaps add some sunflower seeds for some texture.

Black sesame ice-cream

With its deep asphalt grey colour, so uncharacteristic of ice-cream, this is an intriguing dish, with an irresistible flavour that combines hints of halva and honey.

For the black sesame paste
70g black sesame seeds
150g honey

For the ice-cream
2 400ml tins full-fat coconut milk
2 tbsp arrowroot powder
100g coconut sugar
A pinch of salt

1 First make the paste. Toast the black sesame seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat, shaking the pan often until you can smell the toasted seeds. Whizz in a coffee grinder or pestle and mortar and mix in the honey.

2 Mix together 60ml coconut milk and the arrowroot powder in a bowl.

3 In a medium-size pan, combine the rest of the milk, sugar and salt and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, stir in the arrowroot mixture and simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring. Remove from the heat.

4 Mix in 4 tbsp of the black sesame seed paste. Cool at room temperature and refrigerate overnight.

5 Put the mixture in an ice-cream maker for 25 minutes or as long as the instructions suggest. If you don't have a machine, cool your mixture completely and freeze in a sturdy container.

6 After about 45 minutes, when the ice-cream has begun to solidify around the edges, stir to break down any frozen segments and return to the freezer. Check and stir every 30 minutes or so until the ice-cream is evenly frozen throughout. This will take 2-3 hours.

“Lagom” is a Swedish word meaning “just the right amount” (not too little, not too much), and this dense yet tender seeded apple and oat bread from the cookbook of the same name is a perfect example of the concept. It’s just sweet enough, thanks to the apples and honey, with an extra boost of fall flavor from fresh thyme and ground hazelnuts. It’s just healthy enough to make you feel good about eating it—there’s whole wheat flour and Greek yogurt in there too—but delicious enough to taste like a treat.

And while it’s great sliced and toasted for breakfast or a snack with a little butter or cream cheese (and maybe an extra drizzle of honey), it’s also balanced enough between sweet and savory that it would be fantastic alongside a bowl of butternut squash soup for lunch or dinner.

Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

It's definitely nice to bring variety in cooking and try recipes that are not in the traditional area, like this Chinese baked honey sesame chicken recipe that I've seen over Pinterest and since then I've been craving to try it too.

I thought it will be a difficult recipe, that will take me a lot of time. I was actually surprised of how quickly and easy it is to prepare this delicious baked honey sesame chicken. You can make this recipe with either chicken or turkey breast, will be as good.

All you have to do is to let the chicken bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, meanwhile prepare everything you need for the sauce and prepare it. The sauce is done in a matter of minutes, pour it over the chicken and it's done. The flavor is amazing. The toasted sesame seeds with the sweet and sour sauce complements very well the chicken. Serve honey sesame chicken over rice and the lunch or dinner is done in less than an hour.

Give it a try, you will love it.
