Honey wheat bread

I was much inspired by my fellow bloggers Anita, Priya , Monisha, Asha  by their culinary experiments in baking. I have been wanting to indulge  in bread making for long time but never had the time and heart for it. I  found that this is a perfect chance to learn bread making. I must thank Nandita for inspiring me  in the new arena.

I just love the sweet smell of yeast and always walk real slow near the bakeries and now that I brought the yeasty smell into my kitchen, you would wonder where I slept last night. Ha Ha Ha!

Now to the bread,  I got the recipe here and  made little alterations.

wheat bread slices

Hodgson Mill  active dry yeast  – 1/2  packet ( dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water)

Water-2/3 cup wbb

Olive oil- 1/8  cup

Honey- 1/8  cup

Nonfat dry milk- 1/8 cup

Salt- 3 pinches

Whole wheat flour- 1 cup

All purpose flour- 3/4 cup

Proof the yeast as said in the packet to test whether the yeast is active.  

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of bowl. When dough starts to come together, turn out on a floured surface and knead 5 to 7 minutes or until dough is smooth. Transfer dough to a clean bowl, cover with a damp paper towel and let rise for  about 60 minutes. It would have doubled in volume. Sprinkle flour on work surface. Lightly knead  and shape the dough into a ball. Place it on a lightly greased cookie sheets. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and let it for  a second rise, for about 30 to 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle sesame seeds (the original recipe called for wheat bran) on top. Bake bread 30 minutes. Let it cool completely before you slice it.

Lesson learnt: Don’t show your hurry in slicing. After all you waited for hours, so wait till it cool down completely.

‘Thank your mother, brother, father, sister or friend. Thank the weather Monthly mingleor thank the farmer. Thank your neighbor’,  says  Meeta of What’s for lunch Honey. She asks us to dedicate a thank you dish for someone special. What a great chance!

I came here in 28th week of my pregnancy and you can guess how worried  would have been my elders  back home to send me all alone. But, on the contraversy, I never had any separation depression or fear. All  bcoz of my FRIENDS. They were helpful and so caring that I felt really at home. I never want to miss a single chance to thank  them. Thank you, my friends, for being everything to me and helping me in my hard times. Hereby, I send this fabulous sweet as a dedication to  all my  friends for Meeta’s  monthly mingle.
