Whole Wheat Bread

After numerous failed attempts and wasting ingredients, finally I am able to successfully bake a bread… Yes, home made brown bread 🍞 🙂

I always avoid use of refined flour in my as well as my family’s diet. So I baked this bread with whole wheat flour only.

Read on for the recipe.

Ingredients:

  1. Whole wheat flour – 400 grams
  2. Instant dry active yeast – 1 tsp
  3. Lukewarm water – 1 tbsp
  4. Salt – 1 tsp
  5. Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  6. Water – 300 to 400 ml
  7. Unsalted Butter (melted) – 1tsp
  8. Milk – 1 tbsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Take wheat flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Place instant active dry yeast in the well and pour lukewarm water over it. Let it sit for one minute. 
  2. Once the yeast starts bubbling, add rest of the water little by little and knead to a soft dough. Knead the dough for nearly 10 minutes on a flat surface. Dust flour lightly if required. 
  3. Apply oil on the dough and give round shaped. Place in a well greased bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel.
  4. Let it sit for around 45 minutes. It will become almost double in size. 
  5. Then knead it again on flat lightly dusted surface for five more minutes. This will release the air from it. 
  6. Again give round shape after kneading and cover with the same damp cloth, on the flat surface.
  7. Rest it for 15 minutes.
  8. Then roll it lightly and give a rectangular shape as shown in the image. ( Fold both vertical edges and then roll it from the horizontal side) 
  9. Keep the dough log in bread tin and put the tin inside a plastic bag. Keep it aside for 30 minutes for the dough to proof and rise. 
  10. After 30 minutes the dough would have risen to cover the bread tin. Brush milk on top surface of the dough log.
  11. Now bake it in a pre-heated oven at 200°c for 35 minutes. 
  12. After 35 minutes, take the tin out and cool on a cooling rack. Brush melted butter on top surface of the bread.
  13. Slice the bread once it cools down. Enjoy.
