Method
 
  • White bread flour - 3.5 cups
  • Water - 400 ml
  • Yeast - 2 teaspoons
  • Salt - 1.5 teaspoons
  • Molasses or Black treacle - 1.5 tablespoons
  • Water - 150 ml
  • Sesame seeds - 1.5 cups
Pop water (400 ml) into a bread-machine. In a bowl, mix the flour & salt and then tip into the machine. Make a small well in the centre of the mix and pour in the yeast. Set the machine to a dough setting and hit start. When the cycle has finished, tip the sticky dough onto a floured surface and knead well for about 5 mins. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave in a warm place until the dough has roughly doubled in size.

Mix the molasses/treacle with 150 ml of water in a large bowl & dissolve. Pour the sesame seeds into another large bowl.

Knead the risen dough for a few minutes and then divide into 24 pieces. Roll each piece into a long sausage shape and plait 2 pieces together. Make the plait into a ring and then dip first into the molasses/treacle and next into the sesame seeds, before placing on a baking tray. Bake the Simit for 20 ~ 25 minutes (Gas 6).
