1 1/4 cup wholewheat flour
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour (can be replaced with bread flour or if available use 1/2 tbsp vital wheat gluten or bread improver)
3/4 cup hummus (either store bought or homemade; recipe coming up soon)
1/4 cup white sesame seeds roasted
1 tbsp garlic oil (mix garlic powder in olive oil)
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper (optional)
120 ml warm milk
1 1/2 tsp instant dry yeast
Olive oil for greasing
In a bowl, take the warm milk and add sugar. Mix. Dissolve the yeast completely and let it stand for 10 minutes until frothy.
Towards the end of the second proof, pre-heat the oven at 175 degree celsius. Remember to keep a tray of warm water inside the oven at this time while pre heating. Now take the loaf tin out. It should have risen beautifully now and if using the perfect sized loaf tin, it will also start coming off the rim taking the shape of a beautiful loaf. My tin was a little bigger and so could not witness that sight. Lightly grease the top with a little olive oil for a crunchy crust and bake in the pre heated oven with the tray of warm water still inside at 180 degree celsius for 30 minutes or until the top is slightly golden (not browned) and sounds hollow when tapped.
