No knead 100% WHOLE WHEAT BREAD.

Home made breads always tastes much better than store bought ones.These breads are not only tasty but healthier than them too.But getting the perfect texture especially with 100% whole wheat bread is little difficult  and the perfect kneading and the two rising too needed for a good bread.But this one is a quite easier one regarding this as this is a no knead one rise bread.I adapted it from always find it quite difficult to get a perfect texture for 100% whole wheat breads especially with less yeast but this one is having only 2 teaspoon yeast and have a good texture too .And the no knead ones are considered to be the best for a beginner in bread baking so I give it a go and it came out fine.In our home only healthy bakes and cent percent whole wheat ones are only welcomed so this one is a go to recipe.I have tried few kneaded ones too but this one really worked good regarding a better texture for me as a beginner in bread baking.Orange juice here helps to reduce the nutty flavour of whole wheat so its better not to avoid it.


1 cup lukewarm water
1/4 cup Orange juice
1/4 cup Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons  sugar/molasses
2 teaspoon instant yeast
1/4 cup milk powder
11/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups whole wheat flour


1. Grease an 81/2 "x 41/2 inch loaf pan and grease it with oil thoroughly as the dough will be very sticky.

2. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl.Beat the mixture vigorously for 3 minutes with an electric will get a very sticky dough which will neither be pourable nor kneadable.Scoop it in to the prepared pan.

3. Cover the pan with a lightly greased plastic wrap and let it rise for 60 or 90 should just rise to the rim of the pan.while the dough is rising preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

4. Uncover the bread and bake it for about40 to  45 minutes.Tent or cover it with aluminum foil after 20 minutes.The bread is done when the top is golden brown and when tapped on the bottom a hollow sound can be heard.Another exact way is an instant read thermometer will read190° F - 195°F.when inserted in to the center.

5. Remove it from oven as its done and remove to a rack after 5 minutes and brush the top with butter to keep the crust soft.Cool completely before cutting.
