Whole Wheat Bread Recipe - 100% Atta Bread

Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

I have been baking Whole Wheat Bread since a yr, have been trying many recipes few failed, few were hit but finally when I tried this bread recipe, I thought it would be my keeper recipe.I also tried a everyday wheat bread recipe last year which I usually bake for packing mittus lunchbox, but now this recipe got me glued in.

I am baking bread for the first time in my new oven Marvello 35ltr and as you see the bread came out soo good that it is already finished.The oven space is more so now I can even bake 2 breads at a time :)

Though I have been baking wheat bread regularly for home use, I couldn't click pictures to post it here as once the loaf comes out of the oven it vanishes atonce.Yayy finally got to click the wheat bread yesterday so here comes the post.

  8. Brush with top of bread with oil and bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 40-45mins or until the top turns golden.Mine got done in 40mins.Once baked remove the pan and let it cool for 15mins then carefully invert and let it to cool down completely atleast for 2hrs.If you don't want the crust on top, use a wet cloth to cover and keep aside for few mins.How to make Whole Wheat Bread Recipe - Step8
Use serrated knife to slice.Slice and serve.Serve as bread toast / plain bread.

My Notes:

  • Slice only after cooling down completely.
  • Do not invert when the pan is still hot, let it to cool for atleast 15mins before you onvert.
  • The quantity of water to make dough depends on the variety of wheat flour too so add little by little.
  • You can use normal white sugar too.
  • I wanted my bread to be sweet so added 3 tbsp in total though the orginal recipe called for  1 tsp.
  • Always use serrated knife to get neat slices.
