Whole wheat bread/buns

June 30, 2016 § Leave a comment

I started off  baking whole wheat bread in the shape of a loaf as usually  recipes are made in a loaf tin. However, I found that to store, to give away or to eat the whole loaf was a bit overwhelming  and felt that the quantity a bit more for one person to finish.  Hence I now  shape the dough in bun or pav shape. In this recipe I sprinkled  some rolled oats  on the top from the Red mill Organic oats pack  which my sister had left for me. The tiny detail of some sprinkled oats changes  the look of a simple whole wheat bread and makes it healthy with added fibre. I follow this recipe 

The recipe is simple and the bread turns out soft and tasty everytime !


Whole wheat flour – 3 cups

Water – 1 1/2 cup

Instant yeast – 1 tsp

Sugar – 1 tbsp

Oil/ Butter/Ghee – 1 tbsp

Milk – to sprinkle on top of the buns/rolls

Salt- 1 tsp



Mix all ingredients properly. Knead dough. Oil and cover for 2 -3 hours . Punch it down and knead again and roll into shapes. Let it stand for half hour so.  Oil the tins properly. Apply milk and sprinkle oats.   Preheat oven to 390 F or 200 C. Put the tins in the oven and lower the temperature to 300 F or 150 C for 30 mins or so and keep a lookout. Check if its done by inserting a tooth pick or a knife. Nothing should stick to it. That means its done. Remove and enjoy the hot breads. I sliced and toasted the buns  and ate with some Brie cheese for breakfast. It was so satisfying to eat homemade bread with cheese and a cup of tea ! Ofcourse you could use the bread to make avocado toasts or eat with just some home made strawberry jam.
