How to make Tahini Bread
Whisk the eggs and powders.
Add the tahini and whisk.
Pour the batter into a loaf tin.
Bake until firm.
Allow the tahini bread to cool completely to room temperature after baking. This step is crucial to prevent condensation and moisture buildup inside the storage container. Wrap the cooled tahini bread tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This helps to seal in moisture and prevent the bread from drying out.
Place the wrapped bread in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 to 7 days. Remember that refrigeration can slightly alter the texture of the bread, making it denser.
Freezing Tahini Bread
For longer-term storage, tahini bread can be frozen. Wrap the cooled bread tightly in plastic wrap and place it in a freezer-safe bag or container. It can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 to 3 months. Thaw the bread at room temperature before consuming or gently reheat individual slices in a toaster or oven.
