Ingredients

for the tahini spread

  • 1/2 cup tahini halva (like this Tahin Helvasi)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs

for the bread

  • 1 pullman loaf of brioche bread

for the simple syrup

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water

for the topping

  • 3/4 cup sesame seeds
  • confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F. Cut the brioche into slices, about 1 1/2 inches thick. A standard-sized loaf will produce about 8 of these big slices. Set aside.
  2. In a medium pot, combine water and sugar for your simple syrup. The syrup will be ready when the sugar crystals dissolve completely into the water. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a food processor, combine the halva, sugar, flour, salt, butter, and eggs until combined. Set aside.
  4. Using a cup measurer, pour 1/4 cup of simple syrup onto each slice of bread, coating the bread evenly. Next, spoon about 3 tablespoons of tahini spread onto each slice, again spreading evenly to coat. Last, sprinkle the entirety of the sesame seeds over each slice. Bake on a well-greased cookie sheet for 30 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for another ~30 minutes, as needed. The goal is to get both sides nicely toasty and golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire cooling rack, then sprinkle with the confectioner’s sugar and serve!
