Easy Wholemeal Bread

I know a lot of people who like bread to be consistent, with an elastic and tasty core - a real bread as it used to be. You can't find such a good and dietary bread in the market, so I recommend you to make it at home.

Don't be confused that in a picture you see 3 bread trays, I redid the recipe because too much bread comes out of the basic recipe. So, below you have the ingredients for 2 medium loaves, the size of a cake tray.


Whole wheat flour
700 g
White flour
150 g
Bakers yeast
25 g
600 ml
water should be warm at room temperature
1 tsp

Step by step

This is how the dough looks ready, kneaded, non-sticky and uniform.

Cover it with cling film and leave it to rise for about an hour - until it doubles in volume.

Here fermented nicely, take it out of the bowl and knead it a little more to completely flatten the crust.

Step 12

Divide the dough into 2 and form 2 loaves. Put them in cake pans greased with a little oil or spread with baking paper - let them grow well.

Don't confuse 3 loaves here - it was another round of a larger amount of dough - from the round with 2 loaves I didn't have pictures at step 12-13.

Step 13

Then put the bread in the oven for 45-60 minutes, at 180-200 degrees, to bake and brown well. Take it out of the oven and leave it in the trays for 10 minutes, as hot as it is.

Step 14

After this time, turn it over on a bottom and cover with a towel until it cools completely. It would be perfect to let it rest for 5-6 hours and you can cut it nicely.

I usually do it in the evening and cut it in the morning, so I'm sure it took the time to mature and cool.
