Whole Wheat Bread for the oven!
« on: September 10, 2010, 07:34 »
Hi Guys,

I have been moderately successful with white bread although it still seems a bit heavy but the wholewheat bread is defeating me - so heavy it is ineddible >:( Three times in a row!

Please if any of you have a fail safe whole wheat receipe please could you post with method as really need a new one ;)

Many thanks

Becky

I think most people use some white flour in the mix, rather than all wholemeal, in order to lighten the loaf a bit ;)
Otherwise mine would be very heavy like yours  :(

when I had a breadmaker the recipe booklet also used to suggest a crushed vitamin C tablet when making wholemeal bread.
Staffies are softer than you think.

Yep - 100g of white and 400g of wholemeal goes in my mix.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Hi Beks, I usually use two parts whole wheat and one part strong white flour.You get the whole wheat taste but lighter. you may find this will need a little tweaking but is a good one for the oven my preference, or bread maker hope this helps if not let me know and i`ll dig out some recipes. Kind regards Mitch.  :D

I found, as I said, that it doesn't need to be diluted down that far.

1 part to 4 does it for me.
