Aniseed Sesame Loaf & Nut Loaf

Aniseed Sesame Loaf & Nut Loaf
There is nothing like fresh, home baked bread, and here are two examples of favorite white breads. In the middle you see the Aniseed Sesame Loaf, the other bread is the nut loaf, in different shapes. As I only use organic flour, I've never seen a white bread as white as store bought white bread 🙂 I like to keep it simple, these are fool proof recipes, and somehow they turn out different every time anyway, depending on the flour, warmth in the house, humidity. As I think kneeding dough can easily be done by my bread machine, I happily delegate that job, but as I don't like PTFE's and PFOA's (that are released from non-stick layers when hot), I transfer the dough to silicon baking moulds, let them rise and then bake the loaves in the oven. The whole process takes about 1¾ hours.

Total time: 
You need
  • 3 cups of organic white spelt flour (makes a medium sized loaf)
  • 1.5 tbsp aniseed
  • 1.5 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 3 tsp dry yeast
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ - ½ tsp (apple cider) vinegar (optional, but helps with texture)
Or for a more nutty loaf:
  • 3 cups of organic white spelt flour
  • half a cup of walnuts
  • half a cup of pine nuts
  • 3 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ - ½ tsp (apple cider) vinegar (optional)
To do
  1. add the liquids to the bucket
  2. top with all the dry ingredients
  3. run a dough program of about 20-25 minutes
  4. transfer dough to baking mould
  5. let rise in a warm spot (or as warm as possible), tea towel over the top in case of draught, for about 45 minutes
  6. in the meantime, preheat oven to 200C (390F)
  7. then bake for about 35 minutes (tap the bread with a long knife, when it sounds hollow, it's done - but I haven't overbaked a loaf yet).
  8. take out of mould, let cool down for 10 minutes before you slice it
