How to Make Best Wheat Bread at Home

I have made so many version of bread in my blog, so far this is the best whole wheat bread i have ever made. It is sturdy enough, slices perfectly and has a great texture and flavour to it. I specially love this bread when it is toasted, used this in myavocado toast recipe.

This was a very huge loaf of bread which was enough for our whole family for a week. We have one slice of bread which we toast in a toaster and spread some jams or any toppings and have it.

Since it is a huge slice, only one is enough for us and it makes us pretty full. I would suggest eating this for breakfast along with some fruits and a glass of milk. Sure that it is a healthy option than having regular white bread.

Notes

1)Activating yeast before adding is important. The yeast should turn foamy. Then add it to the flour. If the yeast didn't foam up then dont add it to flour. The dough wont rise.

2) If you use instant yeast, then you can add it straight to the wheat flour. Dont need to activate it separately.

3)Don't over bake it, if you do then the bread will get hard.

4)You can add honey instead of sugar.

Version 3: Whole Wheat Bread with Milk

Since we have started dieting, we have been trying to eat healthy and low fat dishes. One of my all time life saver is wheat bread. We enjoy it during morning, it is perfect. But in my place, the bread which we get as brown bread or wheat bread has all purpose flour added in them to make it soft. So we are kind of staying away from it.

How to Make Healthy Wholemeal Bread

Now coming to the recipe of the day. It is a healthy one which many of you must have never thought of making this at home. Yes it is a very very healthy whole wheat bread with no addition of maida (all purpose flour) to it.

The bread which you find in store have some maida added to it. I am not talking about the specially made bread which you find in big supermarkets. But most of them have maida added to it. So if you want a healthier option and need a good whole wheat bread them try this out..

  • You can add honey instead of sugar.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the questions which I often get is Why my bread is not rising. Why my dough is not doubling up. Why my bread is dense.

How to Activate Yeast?

  • Take warm water in a bowl. Use Luke warm water. Dip your finger in the water and it should be very warm. Just like a warm bath water.
  • sprinkle little sweetness like sugar, honey. Because yeast loves warm and sweet environment.
  • now sprinkle yeast over it. I use dry yeast.
  • leave aside for 5 mins to activate. The yeast mix should be bubbly and foamy. This means yeast is activated.

If your mixture doesn’t look foamy.

1)Then you must have added yeast to too hot water so the yeast has died.

2)You have used cold water so yeast didn’t activated.

3)Your yeast is expired. Always store yeast in freezer in an air right container.
