Wheat Bread | Eggless

Well participating in a baking marathon would be a waste if I don't bake a bread and a cake right?
So here I tried baking a bread with just wheat flour and eggless.

Baking a bread brings in a very good aroma into the room. And we can make all types of customization possible. Though I am posting the recipe here and we also enjoyed french toast with this bread, I am some how not satisfied with the outcome. For one the crust didn't turn golden brown but turned hard. So as a baker I would give only 60-70 points out of 100 for this bread.


Wheat Flour – 250gms
Dry Yeast – 10gms
Sugar – 45gms
Salt – 10gms
Oil – 15gms
Water – 135gms


Heat water in a Microwave for 15 seconds. Take sugar in a mixer bowl and add the luke warm water and dissolve it by stirring.
Add the yeast and stir to mix and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes or till the mixture is foamy and bubbly. 
Add salt and oil to the yeast solution.
Mix the flour with this yeast solution. Add water as needed and make a smooth dough.
Observe that the dough is soft and sticky.
Sprinkle a little flour on a clean platform and transfer the dough to the floured platform and start kneading with hand till it is smooth. If the dough is sticky dust your palms with more flour and start kneading it. Knead it for about 10 minutes.
When the dough is smooth place this dough in a oiled bowl and turn it so that the dough is covered with oil from all sides. Cover the bowl loosely with a plastic cover.
Allow it to rise until doubled or even more, about one hour.
Smear the oil all over the loaf pan and keep it aside.
Once the dough raises 3 times the original quantity, Punch it down and bring back the dough to its original size.
Sprinkle some flour on a clean platform and knead the dough for few seconds. Make it into log shape and pinch the seams.
Place this dough in the prepared loaf tin and spread it evenly. Cover the pan loosely with a plastic cover and keep it aside for raising.
After nearly one hour observe that the dough is double in size. Now the dough is ready for baking. Preheat the oven in convection mode at 350 F (180oC).
Apply milk on the top surface of the dough with a brush.
Place this pan in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes. Depending upon the color of the bread and the doneness, increase or decrease the time slightly.
When done remove the pan from the oven and wait for few minutes. Loosen the sides with a knife and turn the bread on to a wire rack.
Cool the bread completely on the wire rack before slicing it. When the bread is completely cooled off take a sharp knife and cut it into slices.
Store them in a box till use.


  1. Looks awesome.. super soft bread..

  2. yet to try my breads and tame the yeast. good one

  3. I do not bake breads that much and do not know why the crust did not brown. If it was eatable, I would say it turned out good.

  4. Thats a super soft bread, looks great to start a day with.

  5. Great for a first attempt. Next time cover the dough when it rises so it does not dry out. You should see better color.

  6. Baking is all about experience and I'm sure you will become very comfortable and make perfect breads soon. Like Usha said as log as the bread was tasty I wouldn't worry too much about how it looks.

  7. Well it looks ok to me , though i am not an expert so can't reason out.

  8. That's good for a first sure you will get the hang soon!

  9. Whole wheat bread always turns out little denser than the ones which use flour. You will get the hang of it when you attempt it often. This looks pretty good for the first attempt...

  10. Baking takes a lot of practice and eventually we all get better at it. Looks pretty good for the first try. Keep trying and very soon you will be a pro :)

  11. Baking a bread takes a lot of practice. hang on and you will get the idea and willl be baking like a pro in no time.
