Sesame Bread Rings

These sesame bread rings are a cross between fresh rolls and bagels: serve them for breakfast, with lunch, or as a snack with butter or cheese. The dough is simple and quick-rising, excellent for a first foray into yeasted breads.

> 2/3 cup lukewarm water
> 2 tbsp olive oil
> 1 tbsp honey
> 1 envelope active dry yeast
> 1 cup whole wheat flour
> 1 cup all-purpose flour (or more)
> 1/4 tsp salt
> 2 tbsp sesame seeds


Combine water, oil, honey and yeast in a mixing bowl and stir to dissolve the yeast. Add whole wheat flour and salt and beat. Stir in all-purpose flour, kneading in additional flour if necessary to form a stiff dough. Knead dough until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until double, about 45 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 pieces. Form each piece into a 14-inch rope, then press ends together to form a ring. Brush rings with warm water and dip in sesame seeds. Place rings on baking sheets lined with parchment paper and let rise about 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F and place a pan of water on bottom shelf of oven. Bake bread rings for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.
