Instructions

  • Mix the pack of dry yeast with 100 ml of lukewarm water in a bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Mix the flour (800 g) with two teaspoons of salt in a bowl. Then gradually add the yeast water, milk and another 400 ml lukewarm water. Knead the dough well until it becomes smooth.
  • If necessary, add a little lukewarm water to make it nice and soft. You can vary the taste of your bread a little. With a little less salt and a little more milk, the bread becomes sweeter.
  • Now let the dough stand in the largest possible bowl for about 2 hours. It's best to put a kitchen towel over it and just let it open by itself.
  • Now put the dough in a loaf pan or shape it yourself as you like.
  • Fill a fireproof bowl with water and place it on the floor in the oven.
  • Then bake the wheat bread in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes. Then you open the oven door and let off the steam.
  • Bake the bread for another 30 minutes. For an extra nice crust, leave the oven door ajar for the last 5 minutes.
  • You can take it out as soon as it's nice and crispy. Then all you have to do is let it cool down.
