Chewy Sesame Bread with Tapioca Flour

Chewy Sesame Bread with Tapioca Flour

This bread is quite chewy thanks to the addition of tapioca flour and can be made very easily in a pound cake tin.


Strong (bread) flour
220 g
Tapioca flour
30 g
Dry yeast
1 1/3 teaspoons
Lukewarm water
160 ml
Coarse salt
2/3 teaspoon
10 g
Margarine (or butter)
20 g
Toasted black sesame seeds
1 1/2-2 tablespoons


1. Add all of the ingredients to a bread maker and proof.
2. While the dough is being mixed, look out for a signal and add in the toasted black sesame seeds. When the bread has proofed once in the bread maker, take it out, punch out the dough and form it into your desired shapes.
3. Place the dough in the tin and proof for a second time. If the dough has risen enough to poke out of the tin slightly, then it's ready to bake.
4. Moisten the surface of the dough with sprays of water and bake for 25-30 minutes at 220°C.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had lots of tapioca flour left over so I decided to try adding it to this bread. You can use rice flour instead of tapioca flour if you don't have any.
