Ingredients of Whole Wheat Bread

  • Oven temp: 400 F-200C
  • 2 tsp (10 gm) brown sugar
  • Lukewarm water to knead dough (too hot will kill yeast)
  • 2 tsp (20gm) dry yeast or compressed (frozen) yeast
  • 2 (250 gm) cups whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 2 tsp (10gm) salt or to taste
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Greased loaf tin (about 20cm /8

How to Make Whole Wheat Bread

  • 1.Dissolve sugar in 1/2 cup lukewarm water (should be body temperature, i.e. when put on the wrist, should not feel warm or cold).
  • 2.Sprinkle dry yeast over it or blend the frozen yeast into the water. Leave this solution in a draught-free place to froth. Should take about 10 minutes. In case it does not, it means that your yeast is ineffective, hence change your packet.
  • 3.Mix the flour, salt, oil, brown sugar and yeast solution. Add water gradually and beat (you can use an electric beater) to a thick, paste like batter--should drop off a spoon in blobs.
  • 4.Pour into the greased tin--not more than half full. Leave to rise in a draught-free place covering tin with cling film or a damp cloth (approx. 1 1/2 hours).
  • 5.When batter has doubled, bake in a pre-heated oven, which has a pan of water at the bottom, for 1 hour, or until brown and sides tend to shrink away from the pan.
  • 6.Remove the tin from the oven. Turn upside down on a wire rack to cool. Generally, the loaf should come loose and drop on the rack when cool, but sometimes you may need to run a blunt knife all around to prise it out.
