I wanted to bake a 100% whole wheat bread using wheat gluten.. I have heard that gluten makes the wheat bread so soft and guess what it did. I made the best whole wheat bread ever. I recommend everyone to try this out for sure.
This bread was my experiment, i just measured my own ingredients and baked this. Just look at those texture, very porous and spongy like. 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..
