Wheat bread

It can be made with yeast, but since yeast has negative effects on the organism, I prefer to use the Yeastless leaven. It's healthier, and the results that are coming out of it are wonderful :D

So we have the prepared leaven, and before use, it should be taken out so it could warm up and come back alive (or easier to say, get all bubbly), to speed up the process, you can place the jar on some warm water.

We're baking the bread in the oven, we also did it in a Breadmaker in the past and both have their wonders.

We are making the bread with whole flour, cane sugar and sea salt (but it's not essential)


- 1 Cup of leaven

- 1 Cup of warm water

- 1 Teaspoon of sugar (with a pile)

- 1 Teaspoon of salt (without a pile)

- 1 Tablespoon of Vegetable oil

- Flour as much as it will take (About 16 Tablespoons with a big pile, white flour takes a bit more - 18-20 spoons)

Don't forget to refresh the leaven after making the dough :)


- You can add some additional ingredients into the dough it then place it into a mold, or you can let the dough rise, knead it, add the additions then put it into a mold.

- After you've placed the dough into the mold, cover it with towel or even a plastic bag and place it in a warm place. You should let the dough rise twice it's size (Not less, or the bread will be hard).

- After the dough rises, place it in the oven. Sometimes I put another oven tray with water under the tray (or grid) on which the bread is located to make it rise more effectively and make the crust softer.

- At the first 5-7 minutes I set the temperature on 250 C, then I lower it to 180 C for about 30 minutes, then 20 minutes more on 150-160 C. But generally, if you have no time for all these manipulations, then you can right away put it on 170-180 C for 50 minutes - 1 hour (It matters what oven you're using)

- Take out the bread and extract it out of the mold.
  * It's recommended to put it on a grid and cover it with a towel

So that's basically the recipe for the bread :)

The preparations for the Breadmaker are the same, excluding the temperature and time apparently.

Good Luck ^^
