Yeast breads with sesame

In August Amber bakery a culinary trip to Lebanon. Actually, to Beirut, where traditional bag-shaped flat bread is baked.

Ka'ak can be bought on the streets of the city from street vendors who ride around Beirut on bicycles on which they hang bread to facilitate its transport. Due to its shape, ka’ak is also called bread in a purse. Throughout the Middle East, this type of bread is also available in the form of a bagel or an oval bagel.

In the recipe, the ingredients for four large loaves, I carefully prepared two portions. It was the right decision, we ate half for dinner and the rest for breakfast.

Ka'ak Lebanese street bread
recipe from the blog - Mycooking Journey

Ingredients

250 g of type 650 wheat bread flour
50 whole grain wheat flour - in my case, wholegrain spelled
10 g of fresh yeast or 3.5 g of dried yeast, 25 g of sugar and 5 g of salt

Execution

Add sugar and yeast to slightly warmed milk and mix. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.

Pour flour, salt, oil and yeast mixture into the bowl of the blender. Using the hook, knead the dough. The dough should be quite soft, but not sticky. We can add some warm water if needed. Knead the dough for about 7 to 8 minutes, then cover the bowl and let it rest until it doubles in size.

After the first proving, take out the dough and gently knead it for a minute. Form a ball out of it and put it back in the bowl for the second rising. The second increase takes about 30-45 minutes.

We put the dough on a floured board. Divide the dough into four parts and form them into balls, cover with a cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Two baking sheets are lined with baking paper.
Each ball of dough is gently rolled out, forming a teardrop-shaped cake. The rolled out cake should be about 15 cm long.

Using a glass or cookie cutter, cut a circle in the narrower part of the rolled out dough. Stretch the dough slightly to lengthen the shape and place it on the prepared baking trays, 2 pieces per baking tray.
Cover the baking trays with cloths and leave for 30 minutes, until the formed loaves slightly rise.
Preheat the oven to about 200 ° C. At the bottom of the oven we put a heat-resistant bowl with water. Spread the risen bread with egg and milk and sprinkle generously with sesame seeds.

When the oven heats up, bake the bread pan one at a time for about 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Cool it on a wire rack or... a stick ;-)
