How to Make Brown Bread at Home

Recipe For Brown Bread

500gm whole wheat flour
500gm refined flour
200gm whole wheat bran
10gm bread improver
20gm gluten
40gm sugar
30gm yeast
20gm salt
450-500gm chilled water.
Sift both the flours together in a large mixing bowl; add whole wheat bran, yeast, bread improver, gluten, sugar and salt. Make a well in the centre of the mixed flour and pour in little chilled water and start mixing with your hand. Then mix in the remaining chilled water to gather the dough and is not sticky but soft.
Place the dough on lightly floured surface and knead it for 6-8 mins until it forms a film on stretching or has a natural shine on the dough surface, use flour if required for dusting to prevent it from sticking to the surface and hands. Place it in a bowl, cover it with a damp cloth for about 30- 45 minutes or until the size doubles up.
Knock the dough by kneading just 3-4 times to avoid any bubbles inside. Shape it into a ball.
Now in a greased bread mould, put the dough made above. Flatten the dough inside, using finger press to completely fit the dough into the mould. Cover with a damp cloth again. Keep it at room temperature to proof. Leave for 45min to 1 hour, or until it rises to less than 1/2" below the top edge of the bread mould.
Place the bread mould in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 45 min to 1 hour.
Take Out. Cool it on a wire rack. Once cooled, slice and use.
