Whole Wheat Bread, apart from being healthier than its refined flour counterpart, also has a rustic aroma and flavour, which are thoroughly enjoyable. Freshly-baked Whole Wheat Bread is a delight to bite into, for babies, toddlers, children and adults too!

You can use olive oil instead of butter to get a more authentic aroma, but if that is not available you can always bake it with regular soft butter. Ensure that the water to which you add the yeast is luke warm. If it is too hot or cold, the yeast will not get activated, and your bread will not have the proper texture. Once baked and sliced, serve the bread the way your child likes it – toasted or sandwiched, with grated veggies, cheese, butter and/or homemade jam .

You can transform the Whole Wheat Bread to make delicious sandwiches and toasts like Alfa Sprouts, Tomatoes and Basil Sandwich , Baked Bread Rolls , Baked Corn Open Toast , Cabbage and Carrot Double Decker Sandwich , Cheesy Onion and Chilli Toast , Mushroom and Tomato Snack and many more.

Always curious to make whole wheat bread as there is no guarantee what quality you get in India. There is a tendency to have 75% whole wheat and 25% maida in making whole wheat bread. Even 5 star hotels in Mumbai do this. For those who want to stay fit, this is a no no. This recipe is 100% whole wheat!!! Yes. Eat in moderation to stay healthy. To make it healthier, cut the butter and use 2 tablespoon olive oil.
