Edited 7 August: I made some changes to the original receipe and tested it three times. Now the bread is less dense and rise properly each time. This receipe yields a small loaf about 480g approximately 10 slices.


Ingredients:
3/4 Cup (180ml) water ** see note 1
1.5 tablespoons Olive or Sunflower Oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice ** see note 2

2 cups (256grams) whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder
1 tablespoon wheat gluten ** see note 3
1.5 teaspoons (4grams) Active Dry Yeast

Optional: 3 tablespoons Sunflower seeds kernel (to be added during the 'add ingredients' beep of your bread maker)

Steps:
Place all ingredients in your bread maker bread pan in order as advised in your bread maker's manual. I used a wheat programme and light crust setting.

Notes:
Note 1: Check the dough after 5 mins into kneading cycle 1. Dough should form into a moist round ball. For my kitchen condition and breadmaker, I find that 190ml works better.

Note 2: I quote this from a bread maker receipe book 'Dough conditioners...these are added to breads to help stablize the gluten strands and hold the gases formed by the yeast...Two natural dough conditioners which help to ensure a higher rise, lighter texture, and stronger dough are lemon juice and malt extract ...You can add 5ml/1 tsp lemom juice with every 2 cups/225g strong (bread) flour without affecting the flavour of the bread...'. Since I have been having problems with my 100% whole wheat bread rising, I added 5ml of lemon juice and the bread indeed rise better Very Happy

Note 3: This has to be Active Wheat Gluten and not Wheat Gluten Flour. Hard to find in Singapore.I found it in Phoon Huat.

Tinkerbell,

I would love to try this once my kitchen is fully built! I am now based in Pakistan and the bread that they buy here tastes a little funny - very 'yeasty', tastes somewhat raw and even a bit sweet. I cannot eat it on its own and must toast it for a while to get rid of that raw taste/smell.

Thanks for this recipe!

Hi Shirin,

You are most welcome ! It is so difficult to find 100% wholemeal bread machine receipes. Actually, I am new to cooking and baking bread Embarassed I have only had my bread machine for a month.

Do you like wholemeal bread too ? Most wholemeal bread receipe calls for 50% bread flour but I like mine 100% wholemeal Wink

Cheers !

I think Active Wheat Gluten is also known as Vital Wheat Gluten here in the US.

Hi Lena,

I bought mine from PH at Sembawang MRT. I searched the whole store and finally asked the store assistant. It is in a rectangular box in the refrigerator section. I have been using it and so far so good.

In NTUC, there is a 'Gulten Flour' but that's not wheat gulten. Indeed it is also known as "Vital Wheat Gluten". Tanglin Mall's marketplace also carries a US brand wheat gulten but it is at nearly S$10 for a small pack.

If really you are not able to find the wheat gulten, replace the 1/2 cup of wholemeal flour with bread flour and the bread should rise okay.

you can get all the gluten free flours from all Jason's Marketplace Supermarkets. Including the new Cold Storage store at Katong Mall.

I've been to Jason's Marketplace at Raffles City, Orchard Towers and have seen their wide range of Gluten free flour and products. Yes, very expensive for a small pack.

They have Rye flour, Buckwheat flour, Cornmeal, Polenta, etc etc.

The other place that I usually buy such flour is 'Brown Rice Paradize' at Tanglin Mall 3rd floor. They carry more volume and varieties than supermarkets. Furthermore, if you make a S$50 purchase, you can apply for a VIP card which gives you 10% discounts.

I use 100% wholemeal flour and sometimes mix with buckwheat, rye, oat flour for variety. Reason is DH does not like white/bread flour. The challenge of not using bread flour is to get the bread to rise nicely. Hence the need for adding 'Wheat Gulten'. However, my German colleague said the bread sold in his country is like what I call the 'not risen nicely' bread so it is up to your preference.

Hope this helps, Lena Very Happy
