Georges bread, sprinkled with caraway and black sesame seeds.
2.5 cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons instant dry yeast
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
6-7 cups flour for bread
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon water for glaze
Seeds ( black sesame, caraway)
Heat the milk, pour into a mixer bowl. Add butter, sugar and salt; leave to cool to lukewarm.
Whisk together 6 cups of flour and yeast, gradually add to the milk mixture. Keep mixing until dough comes away from the sides of bowl. Use remaining cup of flour if needed to form ball, elastic and soft.
Place it into a lightly greased bowl, turning once to coat all sides.
Cover and let it rise.
Punch dough down, transfer onto lightly floured board, divide in 7 parts and form balls.
Put one in center of round baking pan and arrange the rest around to form a flower. Leave to rise again for at least 1/2 hour.
Preheat oven to 400F. Glaze the breads with egg wash, sprinkle with seeds.
