Iraqi Samoun with Nutella®
Add the dry yeast to the warm water. Add the salt, mix it well and keep for 5 minutes. Next, mix the sugar with flour and add it to the warm water. Mix everything together well until you have a soft dough.
Cover the dough with cling film for 20 minutes to allow the dough to rest.
Cut the dough in to portions of around 70 grams each. Add a bit of flour to your hand and roll all the portions in to an oval shape.
Place the ovals on a tray and pinch the ovals gently in the middle to create a kind of fish shape. When you have shaped all the dough, brush with milk and add the sesame on top. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
Heat the oven to 250 degrees and bake the bread for 6 minutes.
Remove from oven and leave to cool down. Once cool, open each piece and add 45g/ 3 teaspoons of Nutella® inside along with raisins. Slice in to 3 portions and, if you like, add vanilla ice cream on top.
