Sesame seeds

Plain flour

Baking powder

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4. Then line a 23 x 13cm/9 x 5in loaf tin with greaseproof paper and then grease the paper.
  • Reserve 25g of the sesame seeds. Spread the rest on a baking sheet and bake in the oven until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Stir in the toasted sesame seeds and set aside.
  • Cream the butter or margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the lemon rind and milk. Pour the milk mixture over the dry ingredients and fold in with a large metal spoon until just blended.
  • Pour into the tin and sprinkle over the reserved sesame seeds. Bake until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  • Cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
