Life without internet could be so boring, I realised this week….My lappy ditched me and left me all alone…And on top of it , Mohit was not here to comfort me…What an awe full week it was….To use my time constructively, I tried this honey and wheat loaf from Goodhousekeeping magazine which I borrowed from the library sometime back {Thankfully}…..It was very easy to make and had a crispy crust and soft and chewy interior….While the bread was in the oven, the house smelt divine with the smell of freshly baked bread……

All you need is
Whole wheat flour-250 gms
Hot water-150 gms
Warm milk-100gms
Honey-2 tbsp
All purpose flour-150 gms
Salt-1 tsp
Yeast-112 tsp

Method of preparation
Mix hot water and wheat flour together and cover and keep the dough for an hour
Add milk, honey, all purpose flour, salt and yeast and knead to form a soft dough
If the dough looks very soft, add some more flour and if it looks too hard, add little milk
Knead the dough for 5-6 minutes with the heel of your palm
Oil a big bowl and keep the dough in it
Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and keep in a warm place for an hour
Punch the dough and roll in shape of a log
Keep the dough log in an oiled bread pan
Cover the pan and keep aside for one and half hour
I kept it in a plastic cover
Pre heat the oven to 425degrees
Place the pan into the oven and immediately lower the temperature to 375 degrees
Bake for 40-45 minuted 
Rotate the pan once in between , so that the bread is browned evenly
Take out from the oven and cool in the pan for 5 minutes
Remove from the pan and cool on wire rack

You can keep this loaf in an airtight container for up to a week….Enjoy with a spread of jam or butter….
