Half and Half Bread

From long time I wanted to try a whole wheat bread but suddenly I came across a very interesting book.I tried my hand on half and half bread and the result came out awesome.

This recipe is adopted from "Homebaked" by George and Celilia Scurfield. This recipe will give you two small 2 loaves. The half and half bread is little grainy in texture and tasted very good after toasting it.

Ingredients
  • 350 gms maida (all purpose flour)
  • 250 gms atta (wheat flour)
  • 8 gms dry active yeast
  • 25 gms margarine/butter at room temp
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 350 ml warm water

Baking Procedure

Stage 1 - Making the dough
Take a large bowl add sugar,salt, butter and yeast and mix nicely.Then add warm water and let it sit for 10 min. After 10 min add the all purpose flour 1 cup at a time and knead for approximately 5 min or until the dough becomes smooth.Keep the dough aside.

Stage 2 - Resting the dough for baking
Coat the bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil,then place this dough in it and roll it. Cover this bowl with a damp cloth or a cling wrap and let it sit for 1 hr.

Stage 3 - Baking
The dough size will double after 1 hr, knead it again nicely and divide it into two parts and shape each portion to a bread loaf and put it is a well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans and let it sit for another 45 min. It will rise to the edge of the pan.

Preheat the microwave at 210 C in convection mode and bake the loaf for 35 min.

Your bread is ready. Slice and toast and serve with your choice of spread.
