- 300 g wholemeal spelled flour

To prepare the bread in sesame with instant leavening sesame, turn on the oven at 200 ° C.
lined a box or plum cake mold (20 × 10 cm) with a sheet of parchment paper (or grease it with extra virgin olive oil and "flour" the walls with sesame seeds). It is essential to do these two operations before starting to prepare the bread because, when the dough is ready, it will go into the oven as quickly as possible.
Sift flour, semolina and 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a large bowl. Add a couple of tablespoons of sesame seeds and a teaspoon of salt. If you want to enrich the dough with other ingredients (oat flakes, other seeds, bran …), add them at this point.
Jumbled up with a spoon so that the ingredients are well distributed and no lumps remain.
Jumbled up Greek yogurt and kefir water, both very cold.
United the flour liquids in one go and start stirring with a spoon, quickly, from the bottom up. Be quick because when the baking soda comes into contact with the liquids the leavening begins.
Pour the mixture in the mold, level it without compressing it, sprinkle it with a couple of teaspoons of sesame and make an incision along the central line of the bread: do not worry if it is not good, its purpose is to allow moisture to evaporate during the baking making the bread lighter.
bake immediately and cook at 200 ° C for 40-45 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn out and cook again on the grill of the oven (by laying the bread on its side) for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack.
To know: with its typical slightly acidic flavor, it is ideal to eat freshly made, still lukewarm. In a short time it will lose its fragrance; the next day, however, it will be good as a base for bruschetta and canapés.
