No Knead Light Wheat Loaf/Vegan No Knead Wholewheat Loaf

Bread baking at home is definitely an easy affair if you are able to tame the yeast, if you find out the tips to get over the fear of playing with yeast god am sure anyone can do wonderful breads at home with simple ingredients. Earlier, bread baking was one of my nightmare coz every time i killed my yeast by adding hot water instead of lukewarm water. Thanks to google and YouTube, slowly i learned alone to tame the yeast and baked many beautiful breads with the incredible yeast god. Now handling yeast its not hard task for me, actually i just play with it. Bread baking at home is quite like a therapy, while baking the aroma of the freshly baking bread will definitely tickle your tastebuds, once you remove the bread from the oven,the smell of the freshly baked bread when hits your nose; my god one cant explain about the feel. Everytime when i make bread at home, the hungry tummies at home wait patiently to attack the freshly baked breads with anything. Yes now bread baking have became my cup of tea, if i feel down or bored i'll go for bread baking and its quite a stress buster for me.

Eggless no knead light wheat loaf, healthy wheat loaf


My first ever bread i tried at home was a No knead bread, yes no knead bread is definitely an easy method of baking a bread at home if you are novice baker. No knead bread goes for easy preparation, just take all the ingredients in a bowl, mix it and keep in warm place, once the dough double the volume, transfer it to a mould, let it rise again and bake. How easy na, coming to today's bread, this is my first post of this week's blogging marathon, as i chosed Tame the yeast as theme, this theme starts from this month and Valli want to keep this theme every month as she wanted us to overcome the fear of working with yeast. Two members of the group will share their tried and tasted bread with us and we have to prepare at home those suggested breads and post it in our blog during a week of blogging marathon. I baked two breads suggested by the members and prepared a sandwich with this light wheat loaf as per the rules of this theme. This bread was suggested by Varada, an enthusiastic baker who never failed to amaze us with her wonderful bread.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.

Next day, bring together the doubled dough by pushing the dough all the way to fold over the top.

Meanwhile grease a loaf pan generously, fold the dough in half,lift it and drop it into the loaf pan.

Smooth the top with oiled hands, using a sharp knife, cut the top of the dough three times to score.

I tried baking this bread, but it somehow didn't cook from the middle, what could have gone wrong? I even tried baking it for 15-20 mins more, but still it didn't cook. Plz help.

Priya Suresh said... Reply To This Comment

@Harshe, did u preheated your oven for 15minutes?? wat type of mould u used for making this bread, i'll advice a metal,glass or silicon mould for making bread.Personally i think this might be happened when the oven is not preheated enough or else coz of the type of the mould, coz this bread came out fabulous to everyone who ever tried till now. Hope this helps.
