Homemade Brown Bread

I’ve already said here that I love making bread, but homemade brown bread has always been a challenge.Whenever I did, it would get too dry, too hard, too crumbly or something I did not like.Always related to texture, with flavor I never had problems.

But after many tests I finally made a tasty homemade brown bread and today I’ll share it with you.

The “big secret” was to add some white flour to the dough.”Ahhh Wesley, but that’s not brown bread.”Technically it is, since to be considered integral, the bread must have at least 50% of flour and / or whole grains.In the case of this recipe, the bread is around 77%!

Ahhh, and if you’ve never made bread or have any questions, take a look at this post here that is well complete and full of tips!

Homemade Brown Bread

INGREDIENTS
• 1 tablespoon dry yeast (10g or 30g fresh)
• 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
• 3/4 cup warm milk
• 1 and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
• 1/2 cup oats
• 1/2 teaspoon of salt
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup oil
• About 1 cup white wheat flour (add gradually)
• Sesame to decorate (optional)

METHOD OF PREPARATION
Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk with the sugar and let it rest for 10 minutes or until the mixture begins to froth and grow (ATTENTION, the milk can not exceed 40º, otherwise it kills the yeast and its bread does not grow).
In a large bowl arrange the whole wheat flour, oats and salt on the sides.
Open a cavity in the middle and add the yeast that has been activated in milk and sugar.
Mix with a fork and then add the egg and oil.
Mix until the dough rises and allows to soak.
Then transfer to a clean, smooth surface and add the white wheat flour until the dough is smooth (add as little white flour as possible and do not worry about making the dough fall out of your hands completely).
Soak for 10 minutes and return to the container which should now be sealed with plastic film and stored in a place with no drafts.
Let rest for at least 40 minutes or until the dough doubles in volume.
After growing up, take one more minute and shape the loaves the way you prefer (you can fill it also if you want).
Finish with a generous olive oil spread with a brush or with your hands and arrange in a greased and lightly baked and roast in a preheated oven at 180º for about 30 minutes or until the bread is golden on top (Be careful not to bake too much and your bread to dry).
If desired, sprinkle grated cheese or sesame on top.

Tip: At the time of baking, place a hot water form on the other grill in the oven and leave it there for the first 20 minutes.This makes your homemade whole grain bread not dried out.
