I haven't seen tiger bread in my area, but I remember seeing it back in Iowa where I grew up.  What do you serve Tiger bread with?  Is it a sandwich bread?

It's coming back to me, I think I saw this in the bakeries at the Amana Colonies in Iowa.  Is it an egg bread?  You might find a recipe by doing a search for Amana Colonies and bread recipes.  The Amana colonies is a tourist area, sort of like Iowa's version of the Amish.  The area celebrates history, but I don't think it's a religious community like the Amish.  There are plays, historical homes and businesses and it's a great place to visit (in the summer!).

Yes Christine its a sandwich bread. When the Supermarkets bake it over here (england)  it nearly flys out of the door.

Found it!  And guess what it's called? 

Real Tiger bread (or Dutch Crunch)

You use any bread recipe for white loaf bread, but instead of butter or veg. oil use sesame oil.

After it rises, you coat the top with a thick layer of tiger paste:

3/4 cup rice flour,
1/4 t salt,
1 t sugar,
1/2 t quick yeast,
1 T sesame oil and
2/3 cup water

And pop it in the oven to rise again for 1/2 hour, then turn the oven on normal bake.

This is exactly how the recipe reads!

Here's a website with info about the Amana colonies:

in case you're interested... I was mistaken, it was a religious community.

Oops, I didn't realize you were in the UK, here's the conversion to metric:

Real Tiger bread (or Dutch Crunch)

You use any bread recipe for white loaf bread, but instead of butter or veg. oil use sesame oil.

After it rises, you coat the top with a thick layer of tiger paste:

100g rice flour,
1/4 t salt,
1 t sugar,
1/2 t quick yeast,
1 T sesame oil and 
150ml cup water

And pop it in the oven to rise again for 1/2 hour, then turn the oven on normal bake.

Christine,

Now look what youve started i went to the site ive heard of Amish and Mennonite and Hutterites but not Amana, see no day spent on this website is a waste i always learn something new, however i was intrigued i saw pictures of the food which looked wonderful so now i have ordered an Amana cookbook, look what happens when i ask an innocent question.

Once again Christine thank you so much.

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances, this is what I found online.

               Tiger Bread Recipe

Have you always bought Tiger Bread at the supermarket? I have devised my own tiger bread recipe to make it myself at home give it a try and let us know what you make of it.

Ingredients

1 (7g) sachet dried active baking yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
525ml warm water (40 – 45 degrees C), divided
2 teaspoons salt
750g plain flour
 
Tiger paste Topping
3 tablespoons cornflour
150ml milk

Preparation

1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 60ml water and let this stand for around 10 minutes. 
  
2. Add salt and remaining water to yeast mixture. Stir in to 400g of the flour knead until smooth. you may then need to add remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, takes around 10 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. 
  
3. Combine the cornflour and milk and mix until smooth with no lumps. 
  
4. Punch dough down; shape into two loaves. Place in two oiled 1kg loaf tins. Cover liberally with the tiger paste topping mixture. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. 
  
5. Bake at 180 C / Gas mark 4 for 35 to 40 minutes. You’ll see the ‘tiger markings’ appear on the crust as it bakes. Once bread is done, remove from tins and cool on wire racks.

Millbury, MA
