Bread-wholemeal rye raisin pine nuts


Bread – Wholemeal rye raisin pine nuts

This is a unique healthy bread recipe made with wholemeal, rye, golden raisin, pinenuts and whey. why whey? I make cottage cheese(paneer) often at home and I get a good amount of whey. After stumbling upon the health benefits of whey and how it can be used, I decided to make bread with it:) and hey, no whey? no worries…you can substitute with water:) . The pine nuts smells amazing while baking and when eaten with slightly salted butter, it is so mmm…

Step 12) Flatten the dough balls using fingers( dust the fingers with flour and flatten if sticky)

note-> The size of the flattened dough should be equal to the wider side of the bread bin

Step 13) Press 1 section of the divided raisins into the dough (press entire raisins for a single loaf)

Step 14) Press 1 section of the divided pine nuts into the dough (press the entire pine nuts for a single loaf)

Step 15) Brush the edges of the flattened dough using little water

Step 16) Slowly roll the bread from one end to the other end

Step 17) Press and seal the edges

Step 18) Place it inside the bread bin

Step 19) Do the same for the rest of the 3 dough balls and place it in the bread bins

Step 20) Place them in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Step 22) Brush the top of the breads using melted butter

Step 23) Place them in the centre rack of the oven and bake for 20 -25 minutes

Step 24) Once ready, take out and place them on a cooling rack/wire rack

Step 25) After a minute, take out the breads from the bin and place on the cooling rack

Step 26) Let the breads cool completely before cutting (takes 45 minutes to an hour to cool down)
