Truly Easy Whole Wheat Bread

This is realy a very good easy to make bread. No starters needed, nohassle at preplanning. And this is excatly how I like it, because usualy I start out the morning planning to make 1,2,3 and by the time I get home I have changed my mind 100 times and end up making 5,9,2...LOL.
So if no pre-planning or pre-startering is needed - than I am fine!

Edna's Whole Wheat Bread
250 grams whole wheat flour
250 grams strong flour
1 1q2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. fast acting yeast
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. honey
450 ml warm water

Knead together all the ingredients. I have a bread machine which I use for all my kneading.
Let stand and ferment till douhj doubles in size. Knead once more to let out air and form a bread loaf.
Preheat oven to 190 C and put a heat proof bowl of water at bottom of oven. Bake the bread and remove the water after first 10 minutes. Continue baking 30 minutes longer.
I think i will try adding herbs and grains next time.
I slice the bread and keep in the freezer.

How do you keep your new slim figure after the diet, if you bake so much? Or do you not eat your own bread?

Wow Dorit, this looks so easy and so good! Yes, maybe adding herbs or even nuts (if I may suggest) would be great!!!
I'm bookmarking it! Thanks.
