No Knead Light Wheat Loaf

August 26, 2014

This is a no knead bread. Simple , easy, perfect for beginners. The recipe is by Varada.
2 Cups All-purpose flour
2 Cups Whole wheat flour / Chapatti flour
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 3/4 Teaspoon  Salt
3/4 Teaspoon Instant yeast
2 Cups + 1 Tablespoon  Ice cold water
3 Tablespoon  Oil


Sift the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add all the other dry ingredients. Pour the water and oil.

Whisk until all the ingredients are mixed together. Do not knead. Pour a few drops of oil on your palm and spread over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and keep aside.

( I mixed the dough in the morning and it was done in 6 hours. )

Lightly spread oil on a 10 x 5 loaf pan.
When the dough has risen to twice its original volume, stir the dough together gently.

No fold it over itself a few times. You start on one side, push your hand under the dough and pull up the dough all the way to fold over the top.

Now fold the dough in half, lift it out of the mixing bowl and place it in the loaf pan seam side down.Smooth out and even out the top with oiled hands.

Using a sharp knife cut the top of the dough three times to score. Sprinkle half a tablespoon of whole wheat flour over the top  ( I had guest and so in a hurry forgot to do this two steps). Cover with oiled plastic wrap and let it sit for a couple hours until the dough rises a quarter of an inch over the side of the pan.   As you can in the pics the bread still turned very well.

Preheat oven to 375 F during the last 15 minutes of the rise.

Bake the loaf in the center of the oven for about 50-60 minutes. If the top browns too fast tent it with foil. Let the loaf sit in the pan on the counter for 10 minutes.

Take it out of the pan and place it out on a cooling rack.

Do not slice until it has cooled.

Thanks Varada for such a wonderful recipe. The bread came out really nice and spongy. We loved this bread.  From this bread I  made Nutella Banana Sandwich will post this recipe tomorrow.
