Sesame Oat Sandwich Bread

Just about every Sunday afternoon I’ll make a loaf of bread for the week, and as much as I enjoy the basic whole wheat sandwich loaf I make frequently, it’s nice to have some variety.  The whole wheat flour in that loaf causes the final product to be a bit tougher at times, which has caused me to turn to trying recipes without any whole wheat flour.  I was recently introduced to this recipe and have made it three weeks in a row now.


I’ve had great results with this loaf each time I have tried it, and love the sesame taste (1/2 cup of sesame seeds!).  I would suggest going to an asian/international store to buy sesame seeds.  I was able to get about a pound of them for $5 versus paying a similar price at a regular grocery store for 1/3 lb.


The recipe has a lot of similarities to the whole wheat loaf I make, the major changes being sesame seeds, brown sugar, and a lack of whole wheat flour.


The recipe was originally from a book with recipes for bread machines, but I have been using the same bake time/temperature (350 degrees for about 40 minutes) as my whole wheat loaf.


It will keep at room temperature for about a week, although in our apartment it’s usually eaten by Friday!


Sesame Oat Sandwich Bread


  • 2 3/4 cups AP flour
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 6 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 9 ounces water


In a large bowl or stand mixer combine all ingredients.  Knead for 10 minutes by hand or 5-7 minutes on medium in an electric mixer.  The dough should be soft and slightly sticky, but clear the sides and bottom of the bowl.

Place in a lightly oiled bowl and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours.  On an unfloured work surface pat the risen dough out to an 8 x 6 inch rectangle, and roll up into a loaf shape.  Place in a greased loaf pan and let rise (covered) until the loaf crests the top of the pan, about another two hours.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes, rotating halfway through.
