Oregano Whole meal Bread.



We all evolve ,grow everyday . The most surprise growth for me is Baking in my life as  before i started  this blog i have never dreamt of baking and now  if i am given a choice to tick i will surely tick Baking as my first option. But the cream, sweet in baking alarms me and so i want to prepare something which is good for family and budget . The immediate choice is Bread . Naturally Bread occupies a major part in our menu and so baking bread is useful and i too can indulge in baking often . A variety of recipes are in various blogs , But to get the real inspiration and not copy  i selected few books and referred certain blogs and combined my ideas to bake a bread. As white flour again alarms me i had purchased wholemeal flour  and so the guilt of eating white flour has now gone .Now to the recipe.


1 .Whole meal flour -2 cups

2. All purpose Flour -1 cup

3. Yeast – ½ tbls

4. Sugar -1 tsp

5.Salt -1 tsp

6.Baking powder – 1 /2 tsp

7.Baking soda -1/2 tsp

8.Oregano flakes -2 tsp

9. Mixed spice powder -1 /2 tsp

10. Milk -1/2 cup

11. Extra virgin Olive Oil – 2 tsp.



Mix all dry items .

Make a well in the middle and add warm milk, followed by yeast and sugar.

Let them, dissolve and then add milk and knead well.

Apply olive oil and finally give a good coat .

The dough should be pliable .

Cover it with a plastic wrap and leave aside for 1 hour .

Then  knock it down and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 1 hour .

We can apply milk or olive oil on top of the dough before baking to get that glazed effect.

After 1 hour insert a clean toothpick in the middle for 30 seconds and check if it comes clean dry .

Cut into slices after cooling for twenty minutes.

You will get a nice aroma even while baking .

i prefer eating this plain with Tea  or mildly toasted with olive oil  rather than applying jam as we may lose the subtle flavour .A slightly coarse texture Bread is ready.


i found the dough not rising well so we can increase the yeast quantity .Oven temperatures may vary.
