Delicious Homemade Wheat Bread

If I could live off of bread, I would do it in a heartbeat! Bread goes with just about any meal. Soup, chicken, salad just to name a few. It is not hard to make bread from scratch, but it does take time. The main reason it takes time is because you will have to wait for the yeast to rise, but the end result is so worth it. Check out the recipe Iove to use for wholewheat bread. You will love the fresh taste.

3 cups 100% whole wheat flour
1 to 1-1/2 cups water
1 tbsp dry active yeast
pinch of salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive or almond oil
2 tbsp plain yogurt
Milk for brushing


1. First, warm 1 -1-1/2 cups of water. Pour 1 cup of water into a large bowl. Add dry active yeast and and sugar. Stir, mixture together (will look sticky) and let it sit for about 20 minutes (cover bowl with a dish towel).

2. Sift together the flour and salt in a separate bowl. Add it into the yeast a little bit at a time. Add the olive oil (or almond) and the plain yogurt.

3. Begin to kneed the dough slowly. If the dough is too sticky, slowly add the remainder water to get a slightly sticky consistency. Continue to kneed until the dough is smooth.

4. Rub water over the dough and over the bowl again. Let it sit for 2 hours in a draft free location.

5. After 2 hours, remove the dough and shake it to deflate it. Begin to shape the dough into an oval on a lightly floured surface.

6. Place oval shaped dough onto a greased cookie sheet and cut a small slit down the middle (barely cut through the dough), that way the steam can escape.

7. Again, cover the dough for an hour.

8. Preheat oven to 225 and bake bread for 20 minutes or until golden.

To test if the bread is baked, you can either tap the side of the bread and it should sound hollow when tapped, or you can use a thermometer. The internal temperature should be 200.
