Tahini Sweet Bread

Method

For the filling and coating

  • Combine the tahini and honey in a bowl until you create a thick mixture.
  • The more you stir the thicker the mixture will become. You want to make sure it is quite thick.

For the sweet bread

  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the water, yeast and 2 tablespoons of the flour.
  • Whisk by hand until completely combined and set it aside for 5-10 minutes until the yeast activates and starts to rise.
  • In a food processor, beat 60 g granulated sugar, mahlab, mastic and cardamom for 2 minutes, until the mastic completely breaks down.
  • Transfer to the mixer’s bowl and add the orange zest, the remaining 100 g of sugar, flour, eggs, milk and last the 50 g of butter.
  • Beat with the hook attachment for 2-3 minutes on low speed and then turn speed up to high to beat for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 50 g of butter and a pinch of salt. The salt is added at the end so that it doesn’t burn the yeast.
  • Beat for 2 minutes, until the dough starts to create elastic strands.
  • As soon as all of the butter is absorbed, remove the mixing bowl from the stand.
  • Transfer the dough to a bowl that has been brushed with oil, cover with plastic wrap and allow it to rise for 1 – 1 ½ hours, until it doubles in size.
  • When ready, cut the dough in half and then cut each piece into 4 smaller ones.
  • Spread each piece of dough out with your hands to create long strips that are 30 cm long.
  • Use a rolling pin to widen each strip to 4-5 cm so that it can be filled.
  • Use a teaspoon to spread the filling along the length of each strip. Each strip should be able to hold 2-3 teaspoonful’s of filling.
  • Roll each strip into a long log. Any filling leftover will be used for the coating.
  • Press on the edges to seal and roll again on your working surface.
  • Create a braid with the 4 rolled strips.
  • Connect each of the four ends. In order to create your braid, number each strip from 1 to 4 consecutively.
  • Place strip 4 over strip 2, strip 1 over strip 3 and strip 2 over strip 3.
  • Repeat the same process as many times as necessary to make a nice braid.
  • Make the second sweet bread in exactly the same way.
  • Allow them to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 150* C (300* F) Fan.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of water and brush over braids.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow the sweet breads to cool for 30 minutes.
  • Brush with the remaining tahini filling, sprinkle with black sesame seeds and serve.
