Lemon & Lime Black Sesame Seed Mini Loaves
Customer recipe by Laura Lupton
Added 60 months ago

I got a cute little lemon and poppy seed cake at work and thought “I wonder what this would be like with lemon AND lime“ and then took it one step further and wondered what it would be like with my latest favourite ingredient, black sesame seeds.

Preheat your oven to 180C (fan oven). Whisk the sugar and eggs together until the mixture is thick and a very light yellow colour.

In a separate bowl or jug mix the oil, milk, zest and lemon/lime juice together. Don‘t worry - the citrus will curdle the milk but it all works out ok when you mix it with the rest of the ingredients!

Slowly add the oil/milk/citrus mixture to the sugar and egg while whisking. Once fully combined, start to mix in the flour and baking powder.

I wanted to have a bit more of the sesame flavour so put the sesame seeds in a dry pan on a medium to high temperature for a few minutes until the oils and flavours started to come out.

Mix the sesame seeds into the batter then spoon into mini loaf tins or cases.

Bake for 30 minutes uncovered then lightly cover with foil for another 15 minutes. Allow to cool before getting stuck in!
