Turkish Bread

I have been very much back into my bread machine lately and the family have been enjoying freshly made bread and foccacias and Jam Fan Tans (taste like a donut only not fried!). So today I made Turkish Bread. I made the dough in the machine and then shaped and finished off in the oven. It was a recipe I found and then converted to use in the machine. I am too lazy these days to knead myself when the machine can do it for me! Anyway here it is. It makes three 35cm x 15cm Turkish loaves.


Place in the bread maker in this order;

350ml Water
1/3 cup olive oil
4 cups Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Yeast (dry)

Set your machine off making your dough. Mine takes 1.25 hours in the machine on dough setting.

Then divide it into three balls and roll each out into a rectangle 35cm x 15cm. Make indents in the bread using your knuckles. Wash with an egg wash (1 egg and 2 tsp water beaten together) and sprinkle with sesame seeds or nigella seeds. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 20 minutes.

Bake each on a lightly greased tray at 220 degrees Celsius or 10 - 12 minutes

Needs more salt if you are of the older generation. Could also sprinkle coarse salt on just before baking.
