It happened to me again the other day. I had no more bread in the house. Since I was hungry for a whole wheat bread and the bread should be ready the same evening at the latest, a best whole wheat bread recipe has been created, which I would like to introduce to you today.
Of course, this whole wheat bread cannot taste like a whole wheat sourdough bread with a long dough guide. In my opinion, however, this recipe is superior to an 0815 industrial bread.Print

- Steam bake the bread with for about 45 minutes.
By the way: If you don’t have a breadstone, or you don’t want to steam (Bake with steam), you can also bake this quick whole wheat bread in a Pot.
