My aunt gave me this recipe more than 20 years ago. It's a great bread to serve when entertaining. I also use slices to make sandwiches. —Sammy Daken, Kelliher, Minnesota

Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounces) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt, celery seed, dill seed and onion. In a small saucepan, heat the sour cream, water and 3 tablespoons butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 70 minutes.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; shape into a round loaf. Place in a greased 2-qt. round baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.
Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Melt remaining butter; brush over bread. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf.
