Whole wheat bread recipe – easy bread baking recipes

           I really love baking bread and buns at home. Home made breads are always interesting to make and eat. Its healthier and creates opportunity for a wide number of options too. Saying all this, I make bread very rarely though I want to do atleast once a week. Its the time constraints and partly my laziness too. But when I saw this recipe , I wanted to try it totally as the recipe used whole wheat flour and the ghee and yogurt in it gave an Indian touch and flavour to the bread. I had the maximum portion of the loaf applying some low fat cream cheese on the the toasted bread. I am surely going to try making this one again soon and also update the pictures too!!

       If you love baking breads and like homemade bread, then I do recommend you to try this recipe.And if you try this ,please leave your feedback in the comment section.

  5. Knead for 2-3 minutes it to form a dough till it stretches without breaking apart.

  8. Now punch the dough and knead it again and shape it into a log/loaf.

  17. Notes-
  18. 1. Brush some ghee on the top as soon as you remove from oven to ensure that the crust is soft.
  19. 2. You can use milk in place of heavy cream too. I also use a mixture of milk and sugar to brush on the top.
