Wheat Bread with Garlic & Herbs

Wheat Bread with Garlic & Herbs

This is my favorite bread recipe which I have made umpteen times and always love it.  Every time I couldn't click pictures as it gets over fast ..this time too I finished half of the loaf but then decide to take pictures before it disappears again :)  Long time back Aps shared one of her bread recipe with me which I modify according to my taste and the ingredients I have,  I like to use wheat flour but you can use All Purpose Flour if you wish, this time I added barley flour you skip this too OR use 1 cup APF and 1 cup wheat flour;  just play around with the flours, herbs whatever that fancy you.  For me morning breakfast with some soft n delicious home made bread, newspaper and a cup of tea is what I need, ya in the picture I just forget to keep a cup of tea!:(



Ingredients:

Wheat Flour - 1 1/2 Cup
Barley Flour - 1/2 Cup
Garlic Powder - 1 tbsp
Italian Herbs - 1 tbsp  [ use any herbs of your choice]
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp - divided
Salt - 1 tsp
Active Dry Yeast - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Luke Warm Milk - 1/2 Cup
Luke Warm Water - 1 Cup



Method:

1. Mix milk, sugar and yeast and let it sit for 10 minutes to get it frothy.


2. Meanwhile in a bowl add wheat and barley flours, salt, herbs, garlic powder and give a whisk to mix everything together.


3. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil, yeast mix and knead to smooth dough, takes around 5-7 minutes by hand. 
[If you have Kitchen Aid or any other dough making machine then your job is much easy ;)]



4. Apply 1tsp oil over the dough, cover with a wet cloth or ling and leave it for 1 hour.  I normally keep the dough in microwave for raising.

5. After an hour it will be double in size, add 1 tsp oil and knead again for a minute.  Give desire size or place in loaf tin, leave for a hour again.
~ If you don't have loaf tin don't worry just shape the dough as you wish and bake on tray line with cookie sheet.   


6. Preheat oven to 350F or 180C and bake the bread for 18 to 20 minutes or until the crust becomes golden brown.



7. Cool on a wire rack, cut and store.  You can store the bread up to 3 days.  
Oh that's the bottoms up of the bread in the right picture, looks lovely rite?



Try some warm bread fresh from oven, it's taste just so good.  You can serve the bread with anything or just eat as it, as we have herbs, garlic it taste delicious just plain or toasted. 


Have a good day ~~

  8. @Suparna ...As I said in the intro only this time I used barley flour otherwise I normally use 2 cups of wheat flour. If you don't want to use maida use just wheat flour.

    The bread taste just the same with full wheat flour and the texture is same too ..so no worries :)
