  • Once the yeast is well dissolved, add the whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour to the yeast mix and make a smooth dough. (add a bit of luke warm water if needed)
  • You can add Italian herbs or your favourite herbs and a pinch of salt to the dough
  • Grease the baking dish with olive oil (a rectangular shape or any shape you like the bread to look like) and place the smooth dough onto the greased dish
  • Cover the dish with a cooking towel or a cling wrap and set aside for 1-1.5 hours, this will help the dough to rise
  • After  1.5 hours you would have noticed that the dough has risen, sprinkle the sesame seeds on top
  • Pre-heat the oven few minutes before placing the baking dish at 400°F. Bake the dough for around 30 minutes or until it turns golden brown
  • Remove and let it cool for few minutes, you can now slice your loaf
