Preparation steps

Step 1/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 1

Rinse the thyme and rosemary, shake dry and pluck leaves or needles. Coarsely chop the rosemary and olives.

Step 2/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 2

Mix together the flour, salt and pepper with a wooden spoon in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 3

Warm the milk slightly in a small pot. Transfer 5 tablespoons of warm milk to a small bowl and set aside. Mix the sugar with the remaining milk, crumble in the yeast and stir to combine.

Step 4/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 4

Pour the yeast-milk mixture into the flour and add the olive oil. Knead with the dough hook of a hand mixer to form a smooth, pliable dough.

Step 5/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 5

Add the herbs and olives and knead to incorporate into the dough. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.

Step 6/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 6

Lightly dust the work surface with flour, turn out dough onto the surface and briefly knead with your hands (dusting hands lightly with flour as well). Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces, then roll with your hands to a long rope (about 30 cm) (approximately 12 inches) and place the ropes next to each other.

Step 7/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 7

Braid the ropes and then pinch the ends slightly to help hold the shape. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place the braided loaf on top, cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, separate the egg and whisk the yolk with the reserved 5 tablespoons milk (save the egg white for another use).

Step 8/8
Braided Sesame Bread preparation step 8

Brush the loaf with the yolk mixture. Bake on the second rack from the bottom in preheated oven at 200°C (fan oven 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximately 400°F/convection 350°F) until golden brown and loaf makes a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom, about 1 hour; after 45 minutes of baking, brush with more yolk mixture and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Let cool on a wire rack before serving.
