Nutty whole wheat bread

It’s not just an Another Bread !  Though, I posted few bread(s) earlier, it’s quite different from those.

The difference is not in the making process. It’s in the ingredients. As the name suggests, it’s full of Seeds and Nuts. Which results in, enriched vitamins, minerals, and Good fats (Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats).

Here, we use Buttermilk instead of Milk. This also changes the taste of the bread. So, the combination of Flour, seeds, Honey and Buttermilk, gives a totally different taste. Hence, this Bread stay away from the “other” bread(s).

The Ingredients required are   ¾ Cup of Butter milk (Leban)    ;   ¾ cup of Bread flour    ;   1 ½ cups of Whole wheat flour   ;  ½ cup of mixed nuts (sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, flax seed, walnut)     ;   ½ tsp Salt    ;   1 tsp Honey     ;   1 tsp Butter   ;  2 tsp Yeast  ;  ;  3-4 tsp of olive oil 

Making Process,  heat the butter milk for 80° to 90°c  add salt, honey ,butter, and yeast . Keep aside for about 5 minutes till the yeast mixture bubbles up.

Now slowly add  1/4 cup bread flour, then 1 cup  of wheat flour into yeast mixture and knead till the dough is soft, smooth and elastic/ pliable. (it shouldn’t be sticky).  You may add a little extra flour, if the dough is sticky. But, only little as is necessary.

Now, time to add the Key Ingredient, The Nuts. Add them and mix well with the dough, Shape it into a ball and coat liberally with Olive oil and keep it in the bowl. Do not forget to cover the bowl with damp cloth. Leave it for an hour or till the dough raise to almost double in volume.
Dust the work surface with flour. Deflate the dough; shape it into a loaf shape and place it in the grease the loaf tin. Cover the loaf tin again with damp cloth and allow the dough to rise for an hour.

Bake at 180ºC (350F) for about 30 to 40 minutes (in a pre-heated Oven) or until it is done.

Using the bread Slicer, slice in the desired thickness. Trust me; you can eat it just like that, without Jam or butter! – A COMPLETE, HEALTHIER break fast
