Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the water used for the dough is warm, but not too hot to avoid killing the yeast.
  • You can add a tablespoon of honey or molasses to the dough for a slightly sweeter flavor.
  • For a softer crust, brush the top of the bread with melted butter before baking.
  • To check if the bread is fully baked, tap the bottom of the loaf. It should sound hollow.
  • If you prefer a lighter texture, you can mix whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour.

Storage and Serving

  • Store the whole wheat bread at room temperature for up to 3-4 days.
  • To extend its shelf life, you can freeze the bread in slices or as a whole loaf.
  • When serving, toast the bread for a crispy texture or enjoy it as is with your favorite toppings.
