Turkish Summit Bread

Have you guys been to Turkey before? I haven't! After google for a while, I decided to make this Turkish bread. This is Turkish Summit Bread which is usually serve as breakfast in Turkey. Some also calling it as Turkish Bagel. They only used very little ingredients on this bread and yet tasted so delicious. Believe me, it is really really tasty. I hope one day I can visit to Turkey and enjoy the food there for real. :o)

And here's the recipe.
Ingredients :
3-1/2 cups   bread flour
1-1/2 tspn   salt
400ml   water
2 tspn   yeast

Ingredients for coating :
3 tbsp  hot water
1-1/2 tbsp  molasses / black treacle
(combine hot water & molasses together and mix well)
*1/2 cup  sesame seeds

Method :
(1) combine yeast with 100ml water and set aside for 5 mins.
(2) in a big bowl, combine flour, salt and remaining water, then add in yeast mixture and stir to form a sticky dough.
(3) leave dough aside for an hour or till double in size, keep dough cover with a damped tower.
(4) once it's ready, fold dough for a number of times.
(5) then place dough to a floured working table, divide dough into 24 portions.

(6) slightly pull dough into string shape for about 5" long and coat each dough with flour.
(7) now, plait dough by twisting 2 strings dough together and join both end together to make a circle.

(8) brush dough with molasses mixture then coat with sesame seeds.
(9) without further proving, bake at preheated oven 220'C for about 20 mins or till brown.

I was so amazed by the look of the bread and after taking my first bite.....I even loving it more. The crust is totally irresistible. It's really crispy......it was sweet at first, then..... it was the tasty roasted sesame....and then the chewy fragrant texture of the bread. Errrrr......Isn't that sounds fabulous to you too! I ate two. Really can't help it! haha.... I'm sure you will too. Enjoy.
