HEALTHY WHOLEWHEAT SWEET BREAD

sweet dough bread1.JPG


Baking with yeast is very satisfying and therapeutic.Nowadays I find myself making buns, rolls and breads all the time and I just love it.I was never satisfied with store-brought wholewheat bread and always used to think -is it REALLY Wholewheat? or simply regular flour and caramel colour, well now I bake it for my morning breakfast myself and enjoy it fresh with butter, jam and coffee.

  • INGREDIENTS-

  • Wholewheat Flour-3 cups

  • Egg-1

  • Salt-1 tsp

  • Butter-1/4 cup

  • Sugar-1/2 cup

  • Milk-1/2 cup

  • Water-1/2 cup

  • Sugar-1 tsp extra

  • Active dryYeast-2 tsp


METHOD-Warm up the water, add the 1 tsp.sugar, dissolve then sprinkle yeast, leave for a while till it turns into a foam.Now warm the milk slightly add sugar, salt, butter, stir till sugar is dissolved.In a large bowl combine the milk mixture with yeast mixture, add flour and the egg and knead well, transfer to a well oiled bowl, let rise well for an hour.Punch down and shape into loaves, leave to rise again for 1/2 an hour and bake after brushing tops with little milk at 200C. I baked two rounds like in the picture below,making a cross on the top with a sharp knife, the rounds sliced well and were delicious.

I like the idea of your adding egg. And also that it is so quick ... does not need a whole night's rise. Good one Bindiya! :-)

I agree that when you bake it yourself, you know exactly what's in the bread. Great looking loaf!

I can't think of a nicer breakfast than a loaf like this with butter, jam, and coffee!

Hi Bindiya,
Could you please tell me how long to bake the bread? I didn't see the baking time in the instructions.
Looks wonderful...thanks, Barbara

Barbara I baked this bread for about 40 minutes at 200C, but pls keep in mind your individual oven temp. and make, the bread will be done when it is golden on top
