Mix together the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, yeast, corn and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, oil and 250 ml warm water.

Pour in the mixture and leave to rise for 1 hour in a warm place. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated 180 ºC oven for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Makes 1 loaf.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
