Turkish bread

I am posting this recipe to record a simple Turkish bread recipe that I found online. I tried making this today but has mistakenly put more water than I should. Still, the bread turned out pretty good except that I couldn't make indents as the dough was pretty sticky. Better luck next time!

Turkish Bread

Mix all the ingredients and place in the bread maker:

350ml Water
1/3 cup olive oil
4 cups Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Yeast (soak in warm water for 15 minutes before mixing)

Set your machine off making your dough. Mine takes 1.25 hours in the machine on dough setting.

Then divide it into three balls and roll each out into a rectangle 35cm x 15cm. Make indents in the bread using your knuckles. Wash with an egg wash (1 egg and 2 tsp water beaten together) and sprinkle with sesame seeds or nigella seeds. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 20 minutes.

Bake each on a lightly greased tray at 220 degrees Celsius or 10 - 12 minutes
