Rustic Wheat Bread

We love rustic style breads, these breads asks for less efforts and trust me the end result will keep you wowwing. I have been baking breads at home since a long, actually my H is a great fan of rustic breads. He can start his day with this bread slices with his favourite spread, rustic breads makes excellent sandwiches as well. Though am not a big fan of rustic breads, i love the sandwiches made with this bread. Anything filled inside the two slices of this bread makes super filling sandwiches. Now coming to this bread, just with four ingredients, you can bake this bread with less efforts. Seriously this bread goes for basic ingredients and trust me if you make this bread at home, sure you will bake it quite often.

We fellow bloggers have been running this bake a thon even since few years and it happens every year during december, and this event helps me a lot to clear most of my bookmarks, seriously i love this event and this event helps me to come with different bakes which i want to bake since a long. Do join me virtually to enjoy this hassle free rustic wheat bread.

Rustic Wheat Bread

1+ 1/2 tbsp Instant yeast
1tbsp Salt
2cups All-purpose flour
2cups Whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, take the yeast, flours, salt, add gradually 2 cups of luke warm water and mix well. Dough will be sticky.

Cover lightly with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rise at room temperature  for two hours.

You can make a single large loaf or two medium sized loaves. Now turn the dough in your hands to lightly stretch the surface, creating a rounded top and a lumpy bottom.

Put the dough on a piece of parchment paper lined over a baking tray . Let the dough rest for 40 minutes for room temperature.

Place a broiler pan on the bottom rack of the oven.

Rustic Wheat Bread

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

Once the dough is ready to bake, dust the dough lightly with flour, slash the top with serrated knife three times. 

Keep the bread to the hot oven. 

Pour one cup of hot water into the broiler pan and shut the oven quickly to trap the steam. Bake the bread until well browned, about 30 minutes. Cool completely.

Slice it and enjoy.
