Whole Wheat Bread

Whole Wheat Bread

I am not a great fan of Whole Wheat Bread. Couple of time when I tried to make this I have got it usually very Dense.
So I was looking for the right recipe and that's when I came across the Recipe from Here. The website has some beautiful yet simple to make recipes.

The recipe is simple and the bread was not Dense and it tasted Heavenly. I am also sending this recipe for the Vegan Thursday Event hosted by Priya. 


Whole Wheat Flour - 3 Cups
Luke Warm Water - 1.5 Cups
Dry Yeast - 1.5 Teaspoon (1 Teaspoon Instant yeast, 1.5 teaspoon Active Dry or 3 teaspoon Fresh Yeast)
Sugar- 1 tablespoon
Salt - 1 Teaspoon
Oil - 1 Tablespoon (I used Olive Oil)


In a mixing bowl, place the luke warm water and add the sugar and stir it well. To this add the Dry yeast and cover with a plate and leave it aside till it is frothy.

In another mixing bowl, place the Wheat Flour and Salt and add Butter or Oil and mix it well. To this add the Yeast water and knead for 8-10 minutes or till you get a smooth pliable dough.

Now place this dough in a oiled bowl and cover it with a damp cloth and allow it to rise. This may take 1 Hour.

Once the Dough has doubled, bring the dough to the top of the kitchen counter and punch it down and knead for couple of minutes.

Then shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased Loaf tin. Cover it lightly with a damp clotha nd allow it to rise for 30-45 minutes.

After 30-45 minutes, Bake it in a Pre heated Oven for 30 minutes at 180C and Broil for 5 minutes.
