Lift the bread pan out of the machine and fit the blade. Put the dough ingredients in the pan, following the order specified in the manual.
Fit the pan into the machine and close the lid. Set to a 750 g (1½ lb) loaf size on the fast/rapid bake programme.
At the end of the programme lift the pan out of the machine and shake the bread out on to a wire rack. Brush the top of the loaf with the butter and sprinkle with a few extra sesame seeds. Brown under the grill, if liked.
