Sesame Tea Bread is a slightly sweet and nutty bread with a crunchy outside and moist inside. It lasts for several days on the counter. It’s great with a cup of tea as an afternoon snack or a light breakfast treat. The original recipe came from Clair from Bon Appetit, but I simplified a bit. Everyone loved this version including my 4 year old nephew who decided to only eat this bread for lunch.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray your standard sized loaf pan with cooking spray or grease with butter.
  3. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon of sugar into the loaf pan. Gently shake the pan around until they are covering the pan. Dump the remaining seeds and sugar into a bowl to reserve them for later.
  4. In a mixing bowl combine your eggs and remaining 1 cup of sugar. Beat until fluffy.
  5. Add in your tahini, yogurt, vegetable, and sesame oil. Beat for another minute or 2.  I used low-fat Greek yogurt.
  6. Add in the remainder of the ingredients except for the flour. Beat for an additional minute or two until everything is combined.
  7. Stir in your flour and remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds at this point. Make sure you scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is combined.
  8. Pour or scoop the batter into your loaf pan. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and sugar you reserved earlier.
  9. Place your loaf pan into the warm oven.  Allow the bread to cook for 55 minutes before you begin to check it, When a tooth pick comes out clean, you know it is done.
  10. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool all the way down.
  11. Use a spatula to loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  12. Turn it upside down and remove the loaf. Slice and enjoy.
