Fluffy Black Sesame Bread

Fluffy Black Sesame BreadI've often used sesame in bread recipes and this one is no different. Instead of using whole sesame seeds as I always do, this time I've slightly crushed the black sesame seeds so that they blend nicely with the bread dough. One can easily keep this bread for up to 2 to 3 days. If you don't like black sesame seeds, use the normal ones in moderate quantity since they have a sharp flavor. Do not forget to include wheat bran in the regular flour to get the right texture. Simple buttery toasts made with this bread are awesome. If you want to omit sesame seeds altogether, replace them with coarsely ground fennel seeds. Do try this one and see how your family members will relish this recipe.
