Flower Bread (Cicek Ekmek)

2 cups lukewarm water
4-5 cups bread flour
1 cube fresh yeast (17 gr)
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp yogurt
1 tbsp water
Nigella seeds or sesame seeds

Place the lukewarm water, sugar and the yeast into a bowl. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and the yeast. Add the salt, olive oil and flour; knead for 10 minutes, till dough becomes elastic. The more you knead the better your bread will be. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap or a clean cloth (see the picture) and let it rest for 2 hours in a warm place, till it rises up to double its volume (see the picture).
Place dough on the counter and punch to release air. Cut the dough into two pieces, then each piece into 8. Make 8 balls using your palms. Grease a round Pyrex or baking dish (20-30 cm) and place one ball in the middle and the other 7 around it leaving some room. And do the same with the other half of the dough, so you will bake 2 flower breads. Cover it with a clean cloth and leave it for ½-1 hours to rise in a warm place (If you have time let it rest for 2 hours).
Mix 1 tbsp yogurt and 1 tbsp water in a small bowl, then brush the surface of the bread with this glaze. Finally, sprinkle nigella seeds or sesame seeds on top.
Preheat the oven to 425F (220C). Place the bread on the middle rack. Bake for 25-30 minutes, till it becomes golden brown. After taking it out of the oven cover with a clean cloth or towel to keep the bread soft.
Flower bread is good to go with butter, honey-butter dip or spicy olive oil dip when warm.

P.S: Do not use metal container when kneading or resting the dough. Metal spoils the texture of dough.
P.S2 : If you want the top to be lighter brown, then beat 1 egg yolk and 1 tbsp milk for glaze, instead of yogurt and water.

4-5 su bardagi ekmek unu
1 kup yas maya (17 gr)
3 yemek kasigi zeytinyagi
2 yemek kasigi seker
1 yemek kasigi tuz

Hamuru tezgahin uzerine alin ve havasini indirmek icin uzerinden bastirin. Hamuru ikiye bolun ve her birini 8 esit parcaya ayirip, avucunuzla 16 tane yuvarlak top yapin. 20-30 cm capinda yuvarlak bir tepsi ya da borcami yaglayin, ortasina bir top koyun ve diger 7 tanesini ortadakinin etrafina araliklarla dizin.
