Whole Wheat Bread

Pin It
Pin It

3 1/2 whole wheat all purpose flour

3 eggs, plus one more for egg wash

1/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon dray yeast

1 1/2 cup of water


Mix dry yeast and 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 cup flour. Cover and let it bubble for 15 minutes. Mix all ingredients together and knead with hand for about 10 minutes. Add more flower if it is too sticky in your hand. 

Make the dough into a ball and place it in a large bowl again.  
 Let the dough rise until the dough double its size. Once it double it's size, press the dough with your hand and let the dough rise again for the second time to double it’s size. This time it will take less time to rise.
  Divide the dough into three and braid the dough, Cover the dough and let it rise again. Approx. 30 min after braiding the bread, start and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Egg wash the dough and ready for baking. As you can see on the picture above, one of the bread doesn't have sesame seed, so feel free to add if you would like.
  Bake for 15 minutes, then cover it with foil and bake for another 15 minutes.

This recipe makes two bread. Remember the recipe above is doubled. For me, making one bread or four is the same work. You will be saving energy and you don't have to clean up twice.
The picture came out too bright, I didn't like that, oh well.

I love reading your comment and thank you for stopping by!
