This is the 'panetone' style that my mum uses (that's what we called it - less cake-y and more bread-y). All in, and tin-baked. She sometimes has 6 tins in one oven; they didn't last long, and different to a Victoria-style sponge. Claire, thanks for the memories.

Hi, thanks for this recipe. I love sesame seeds. I find the video too long for a simple recipe. Aside from Mr. Andy, the presentors do the vids with TMI. Is the vid about the recipe or an exhibition of your knowledge?

In my opinion, what she just made was not good, but it’s Claire, so it’s still in my liked videos folder

Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I think it is certainly delicious, but I am Arab and my grandmother says that the excessive of black sesame is harmful, if the recipe is good only should not increase the black sesame.

The biggest baking tip I have taken away is after baking something in a pan is to put it all on a wire rack and man it all comes out beautifully every time!! Thank you BA kitchen!

Moist isn't a disgusting word... If you want to take a disgusting word out of your vocabulary, stop saying protein instead of meat

This recipe is delicious! I tested this recipe for my channel and it turned out well. This would be perfect as a muffin -- but probably hard to get the swirl in the cup.

This recipe is amazing. It has the taste of Halvah Thanks Claire! I used 1/2 cup of cocoa instead of the black sesame seeds. A new favorite.

Well, who has a coffee/spice grinder...
Geoffrey Alan
Geoffrey Alan Year ago
Daniel H. I just tested this on my channel. I don’t have a spice grinder, so I did it in the blender. It worked OK, but I had some seed fragments - still got a distinct swirl though.

Pam spray it’s really toxic and not good for health not sure why too lazy use melted butter
I made this and it was amazing. It’s on day three of sitting on the counter and somehow it keeps getting more delicious and soft. Claire is a food witch.
