    1. In a large bowl mix the plain white flour and salt. In a separate bowl or glass jug warm 1/4 pint of milk and water, add the sugar and yeast. Stir and leave for 10 minutes.
    2. Once milk/yeast mixture is frothy, add the sesame and cooking oil. Stir in to flour and mix.
    3. Knead dough for 6 or 7 minutes, its hard work but its worth it.
    4. Cover dough in a bowl with clingfilm. Leave for about 50 minute, until the dough has doubled in size.
    5. Knead again for about a minute and shape into loaf or buns and place on a baking tray or stone. Mix the milk and rice flour together with a drop of sesame seed oil and coat the loaf.
    6. After 30 minutes, pop in the oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for about 35 minutes. When its browning on top remove of the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
    7. Enjoy!

    Tip

    Mix and knead by hand, it's so much better than a mixer. Get the kids to help.

    didn't look anything like tiger bread. nor did it taste like tiger bread. Followed the recipe exactly, hoping for the result as described. Far too sweet. it reminded me more like a cake than bread. - 27 Oct 2013

    Far too sweet - I halved the amount of sugar (still too much IMO) and used just 2 tsp of yeast along with strong bread flour. Made the dough in the bread maker, shaped on a baking tray and left to rise for another 40 minutes. Rose very well, very light bread with a good taste (apart from the sweetness). Crust didn't work particularly well, but I may have made that too wet - will try again! - 12 Jan 2014

    i have made this bread and it had the resemblance of shop bought tiger bread with the cracked look on top, use a pastry brush and corn flour in the recipe to make it easier to spread the paste on. It was sweet in taste and delicious with stew. - 30 Dec 2013
