So, it’s not always that easy but I really didn’t want to just give up like that so I decided to give it another go using Jamie Olive’s basic bread recipe. I hope that by just starting at d basic, I might just be able to figure out what really is needed to make this healthy version bread a success. Therefore, I made modifications along d process as I watch d bread maker knead d dough. And when Hubby tried d end result, it was considered a success! Phew!
So here’s d recipe for anyone who wants to give it a go.
Sneaky Chef's Healthy version of flour blend
- 1 cup of All-purpose flour
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1 cup of wheat germ
Mix all together for later usage. It can also be kept in d fridge for up to 3mths.
Jamie Oliver’s basic bread recipe (modified)
- 4 cup bread flour
- 3 ½ cup Healthy flour blend
- 3 tbsp (30g) yeast
- 2 tbsp honey or 30g sugar
- 110ml warm milk + 400ml tepid water
- 26g salt
Put all into d bread maker & select basic cycle for 1kg load. Check after 5mins & add 2-3 tbsp of water if dough is too dry. But from past (failure) tries, less water is needed if using wheat germ so try not to pour all d water in so fast.
