Homemade Tiger Bread

Possibly the most popular of the bread world, tiger bread is perfect for any occasion.



500g White bread flour
7g Fast action yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon Caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
300ml Water
Vegetable oil


90g Rice flour
3.5g Fast action yeast
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Golden caster sugar
1/2 tablespoon Toasted sesame oil
90ml Warm water


The Bread

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast.

Form a well in the middle of the mixture and slowly pour in the water.

Mix together until a dough consistency forms. Flour a clean work surface and knead the bread for 10 minutes.

Oil a mixing bowl, place the dough inside the bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave in a warm area until the dough has doubled in size.

Tip the dough on to a clean work surface and knead.

Dust a baking tray with flour and shape the dough in to an oval shape. Place on to the dusted baking tray and cover with oiled clingfilm and leave to double in size once more.

Preheat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens. Mix the rice flour, fast action yeast, salt, golden caster sugar, toasted sesame oil and warm water adding more water or flour if needed.

Remove the clingfilm from the bread and spread the paste on top of the loaf and place in the oven for 40 minutes or until cooked.
