Tiger Bread

This is an old favourite of mine and many people have tried the recipe when I put it on another blog. So here it is for you to try.


500g bread flour
7g sachet quick yeast
1tsp. salt
3 Tabsp. 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 bread machine. Knead until smooth and elastic if mixed by hand.

Allow to rise, covered in oiled cling film for about an hour until doubled in size.

Meanwhile make the Tiger Paste

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

Knock back the dough (just knead for a minute to get the air out) 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. This makes quite a lot of paste so be generous with it. As the bread rises the paste will crack to give the characteristic Tiger Bread crust.

Bake as normal at 220°C/200°fan/Gas 7.
