Simit (turkish Sesame Bread)

By: Hadia Khanafer from Hadia's Lebanese Cuisine
Simit (turkish Sesame Bread)
Simit turkish Sesame Bread

"Round chewy bread rings found evreywhere in Turkey, traditionally eaten as a snack or even part of the breakfast spread! My 1 week trip to Istanbul had me thinking about making and posting the simit recipe, and it was great to be able to pull it out of my oven! Simit is not the fastest bread to make simply because it is a yeast bread and the dough has to have some rise time, but believe me it is so worth it, and smelling the simit baking in your oven is really satifying! A plain simit with a glass of tea is a strong afternoon tradition in Turkey! "

NotesMost recipes call for an egg wash to provide the baked goods with a pleasing attractive golden color, but this is not the case with simit! The beautiful golden color of simit comes from the pekmez (grape molasses). The shaped simit is dipped in a diluted mixture of grape molasses and water to color it deep brown and to give a hint of sweetness and an earthy undertone, then the simit is rolled in sesame seeds on both sides before the legendary bread goes into the oven.
