PIDE (TURKISH FESTIVE BREAD TOPPED WITH SESAME AND FENNEL SEEDS)

1 oz compressed yeast, or 2 packages active dry yeast
1 tsp + 3 Tbsp sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
4 Tbsp butter or margarine
3/4 cup milk
4 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp salt

1 egg, beaten
3 1/2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 1/2 tsp fennel seeds

Place the yeast, 1 tsp sugar and < cup of the warm water in a small
bowl. If compressed yeast, cream together; if dry, stir to dissolve.
Set aside in a warm place for 15 - 20 minutes or until the mixture
begins to froth.

Place the butter, milk and remaining water in a small saucepan and
heat slowly until the butter has melted. Remove from the heat.

Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl and stir in the remaining
sugar. Make a well in the center and add the yeast and butter
mixtures. Gradually work in the flour until a soft dough is formed.
Transfer to a floured work surface and knead for about 10 minutes
or until smooth and elastic. (Alternatively, knead the dough using
the dough hook in a heavy duty (counter top) electric mixer.)

Grease a large circular dish about 12 inches in diameter. place
the dough in the center of the dish and press down until it forms
a round loaf about 10 inches in diameter. Cover with a dish towel
and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Preheat
the oven to 375 F.

Brush the surface of the bread with the beaten egg and sprinkle
the sesame and fennel seeds evenly over it. Using the point of a
sharp knife make a pattern over the top. bake for about 40 minutes
or until golden brown and cooked through. transfer to a wire rack
and leave to cool.

Makes 1 large loaf.
