It was Since long i wanted to try something different ingredients for making bread other than usuals...Came across many recipes which Uses different sorts of grains, honestly speaking, i wanted try those mix grain bread but i was not having all the grains handy so thought, why not to use which is available In pantry already..

Whole Wheat Germ
For Sponge:

1 cup sifted maida  / all purpose flour
1 tsp sugar
1 cup lukewarm water (not hot)

For Bread:
Above all sponge mixture
1 cup sifted maida (and a little extra for dusting and kneading)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Luke warm water
2 tbsp olive oil or any vegetable oil(and a little extra for greasing dough)
1 1/2 tsp salt


For sponge

  • After 15-20 minutes, here you are ready with your sponge...

  • Now add in all sponge mixture to it, start gathering in to a dough. Add a 1/4 cup of water and little more to accumulate all into a sticky dough mix.
  • Knead for few minutes, until dough is smooth, soft and elastic. (Can use a little qty of flour for dusting and kneading the dough)
  • Once done, grease the dough in a bowl with oil.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic cling film and allow it to rise for 30 -40 minutes or until double in volume.
  • Once the dough doubles, deflate it by punching the dough down.
  • Knead for a minute and shape the dough to a loaf.

  • Cover the loaf pan with a tea towel and allow the dough to rise further for about 1-1 1/2 hr or until doubles in volume.
  • Mean while preheat oven at 180 degree Celsius.
  • Bake the bread for 20-25 minutes in preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius (place a bowl of water in lower rack of oven and bread on top, this gives a moist and nice color crust to bread).
  • Once baked, bring the bread out of oven and in a minute or so remove the bread loaf from a loaf tin.
  • Place a loaf on a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.
