This bread was my experiment, i just measured my own ingredients and baked this. Just look at those texture, very porous and spongy like. Seeing the dough too sticky I thought this bread would be a disaster, but to my surprise it turned out to be perfection. Now this recipe is going to be in my repitore. Going to enjoy this for a few days.

This is so easy to make as well and it makes the perfect toast or taste just delicious when spread with some jam or preserves over it when sliced fresh from the loaf..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Resting Time : 2 hours
Baking Time : 35 to 40 mins
Makes : 1 loaf


Wheat Bran - 1.5 cup / 100 grams
Wheat Flour - 1.5 cup / 180 grams
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cup + 1.5 cup / 420 grams
Dry Yeast - 2 tsp
Honey - 3 tbsp
Oil - 3 tbsp
Warm Water - 2 cups / 480 ml
Salt to taste

(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)


Take yeast in a bowl, add in 1/4 cup of warm water, add in honey and let it sit for 5 mins.

Now take wheat bran in a bowl, add in the remaining warm water and mix well. Let it sit for 5 mins.

Now add in oil, yeast water, wheat flour, 2 cups of maida and mix well. Give it a good mix. The dough will be very sticky. 

Now cover this with a plate and let it rest somewhere warm till it doubles in size, atleast 1 hour.

After it has risen, add in remaining 1.5 cup of flour and knead well. you can use a ladle and mix it very very well. This develops the gluten. The dough will be still sticky but little elastic.

Now oil a loaf pan really well, spoon the dough in it and smooth the top.

Now let it rest for 30 to 45 mins in a warm place.

During the last 10 mins of rising. Preheat oven to 200 degree C.

Now place the pan into the oven and bake for 15 mins in 200 degree C. After that reduce the temp to 180 degree C and bake for 20 to 25 mins further.

Now remove it and remove the loaf from pan.,let it cool on a wire rack.

Once it is cooled, slice and serve.
