Wholewheat,Tomato Basil Loaf

Baking is one among my favourite passion. After blogging and cooking, baking took an important place. I never forget to bake atleast for twice a week even i have a very busy schedule with my course and internship.Baking bread at home is definitely very healthy,obviously am trying to bake my dose of  bread quite often at home. Before blogging, i never tried my hands in baking breads with yeast, taming the yeast was one of my nightmare and i never tried to explore it. But blogging took me in a right direction and now am playing with yeast god. Yeast behaves very good with me hence you might have noticed that i have varieties of breads and bakes with yeast which i tried in my blog. Since i love to bake with yeast i wont hesitate a second to try varieties of bread at home. If i get a chance to bake with yeast, i wont miss it for any reason.I picked Tame the yeast as theme for this week's blogging marathon.

Two members of our blogging marathon 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 both two breads suggested by the members.This month's tame the yeast challenges are suggested by both Veena of Veg Nation and Pradnya, Veena gave us this vegan wholewheat tomato basil loaf from Italian Cookbook of Tarla Dalal.This loaf goes for sundried tomatoes and my favourite herb Basil leaves, obviously i tried making this loaf immediately once i saw the challenges. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#46.
