• Use a basic recipe for a white loaf, using sesame oil in place of the olive oil or butter in the recipe.

    This is the one I use:

    500g bread flour
    7g sachet quick yeast
    1tsp salt
    3 Tab sp sesame oil
    approx 300ml warm water

    Mix well together, I use a Kenwood chef with a dough hook. You can mix by hand or use a dough setting on a breadmaker. Knead well if mixed by hand.
    Allow to rise, covered in oiled cling film for about an hour until doubled in size.

    Tiger Paste

    Mix 100g rice flour, ¼ tsp salt, 1tsp sugar, ½ tsp quick yeast, 1 Tab sp sesame oil and 150ml warm water.

    Knock back and shape the loaves and or rolls.
    When the loaves and rolls have been shaped spread the paste thickly over them and put them to rise again for half an hour then bake as normal at 220 C/200 fan/Gas 7.

    Not exactly the same as shop-bought but very tasty.

      Nice recipe. I made sure to only use enough water to give a thick paste (I always add the water as needed when making bread as each bag of flour differs in the amount it sucks in) and I did put a bit more oil in, coz I love the oil!

    • Amy says:

      Has anyone used gluten free flour in this recipe. Always looking for gluten free/egg free bread recipes that are easy and delish.. Any suggestions? This bread looks awesome!

      the normal ammount of oil is 1 tablespoon not 3,I halved the paste recipe and it was much too thin and there was still enough to do 2 lots,thanks though

      Hi. I have just made your tiger bread in rolls..not sure how long to leave them in for? 10mins wasn’t long enough…so keeping an eye on them and aiming for 18. Will keep u posted. Thanks for posting and sharing your recipe. Kerry :)

    • M.tho says:

      I love this recipe. I have to tell you that I did use the paste but I did use the dough recipe with a few substitutions…instead of bread flour I used self-rising and I omitted the salt (since self rising has salt already.

      And it was so fluffy and tasty… I never dreamed of using sesame oil to make bread but now I’m a fan!

    • Catherine says:

      I’ve not had that problem before but it can vary depending on the flour you use. Glad you like it and thanks for the feedback.

    • Andrew says:

      Actually, I take that back. Now that I’ve tried the bread, it’s really soft and does taste good. Odd that I needed so much more flour though.

      Thanks for the recipe.

    • Andrew says:

      Just tried this. The dough was INCREDIBLY STICKY so I had to add quite a lot more flour to make it feel like a normal dough. Same for the paste – using the measurements given in the recipe I was left with a watery paste so had to add more flour. The result is quite a tough loaf that has the texture of tiger bread on the outside but not the colour. Was the dough meant to be so wet and sticky?!

    • andrew says:

      I look forward to trying this. Need to buy some sesame oil and rice flour first, though.

    • Catherine says:

      You’re welcome. Glad you liked it

    • clare says:

      fab recipe, made it today and it tastes yummy! thanks for sharing.

    • Many thanks Catherine. That’s very interesting given what I have been reading about bread. I still have a lot to learn! I’ll let you know how this one goes… Thanks again – especially for the swift response!

    • Catherine says:

      You are quite right, lots of recipes do use sugar. I used to put sugar in when I first got a bread maker because it was in the recipe. Over the years I have realised it doesn’t make a lot of difference to the bread so you can add it or leave it out according to taste.

      I hope your tiger bread is successful! Let me know how you get on.

    • Hi Catherine,
      I am quite new to breadmaking (since Feb 2013) and I am trying out this recipe right now. Is it possible you have left out sugar in the dough recipe here? I have just added a level teaspoon and hope for the best. (I based this on what I have put in the bread maker before.) Thanks in advance.

    • Catherine says:

      You’re right it is quite a lot. I like to put it on quite thickly. Glad you want to make it again though.

    • Bob ather says:

      Why so much paste it is a massive amount for one loaf apart from that I will do it again,

    • jay says:

      I love making bread. I’ve made a baguette, plaited loaf and now I really would love to try out tiger bread as its one of my all time favourites! Delicious, I will try making tomorrow night.

    • john says:

      wow! we must be related! i must admit, i didn’t think the magimix recipe would work because there is so much fuss made about kneading and proving etc. didn’t think a ‘bung it all in and blitz it’ approach would work but i’ve been amazed by the result.

    • Catherine says:

      That’s great! I love making bread and usually use my Kenwood Chef. I made pizza tonight too!

    • john says:

      not yet. going to do a delivery order but tesco sell both so i didn’t know which to use. I’ve just started cooking again after a long illness which has left me with reduced mobility so I’m on the look out for easy recipes I can do in the magimix. Made excellent bread today – really easy in the magimix and no kneading! Had pizza for tea and made some rolls for tomorrow.

    • Catherine says:

      I usually use toasted as it seems to be easier to buy. Have you tried it yet?

    • john says:

      Do you use sesame oil or toasted sesame oil?

    • Catherine says:

      That size loaf would cook for 25-30 minutes. Give it a tap underneath to make sure it sounds ‘hollow’ so you know its done.

    • Fran says:

      how long did you cook them for in the oven? Especially the bigger loaf that i see in the picture. Wanting to make them tomorrow but i’m making the dough today and leaving it to “retard” overnight first.

      Thanks for your assistance in advance.

    • Catherine says:

      Glad you liked it.

    • Just wanted to let you know that I made this today and it was so delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe.
