Breads (Yeast) - Loaves


July 18, 2017 | Recipe by Bake with Paws

This is my sister’s recipe for bread that stays soft even after a few days. She made it for me while I was back home in Penang a few days ago. I loved it so much I immediately repeated the recipe as soon as I returned to KL. I highly recommended you try it if you are looking for a wholemeal bread recipe. The technique she discovered is to let the dough rise 3 times.

Recipe - Wholemeal Bread Recipe 

Yields: 1 Loaf (12x25x11cm loaf pan)


500g bread flour (I used Japan High Gluten Flour) 
40 g bran
1 ½ tsp instant yeast
2 tbsp milk powder
40 g brown Sugar
1 ½ tsp Salt
20 g butter
20 g corn oil or olive oil
300 g water

  1. Add all ingredients (except butter and olive oil) into the bowl of stand mixer. Using the dough hook on a stand mixer, knead for 3 - 5 minutes until the dough comes together.  Add in butter and oil, continue kneading for 10 - 12 minutes till the dough come together, become elastic and tacky but not sticky.  I stopped half way to prevent the motor from overheating. 
  2. Then let the dough complete the first round of proofing, about 60 minutes until double in size.
  3. Punch down the dough and slightly knead the dough by using hand. Cover the dough and let it rise until double in size. The second round of proofing will take shorter time, about 45 minutes.
  4. After completing the second round of proofing, transfer the dough to a clean floured surface. Roll out with a rolling pin into rectangle shape. Roll up the dough until a log is formed. Place dough in a 12x25x11cm loaf pan lining with non-stick baking sheet. Let it rise for another 45-60 mins.
  5. 15 minutes before baking, turn on the oven to 200 C. Bake in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire rack. Let cool completely before slicing.

  3. Hi, is it possible to half the recipe to make into the loaf? Need to increase or reduce any ingredient? TIA :)

  4. Hi many wholemeal flour should I use ? There' s no measurements for wholemeal flour ? thank you

    1. Hi, Thanks for reading this recipe. This recipe uses bran instead of wholemeal flour. Wholemeal flour is flour added with bran if I am not wrong. If bran is not available, then please use the below wholemeal bread recipe:

      Cheers :)
