Wheat flour honey bread recipe - how to make wheat flour bread

Wheat flour honey bread recipe - This is a soft, moist and  healthy bread made with wheat flour and honey.  I call it  healthy because wheat flour contains natural antioxidants, fibers, B vitamins along with unique flavor, colour and texture. This bread also carries  all the goodness of honey  and yogurt. I have baked this healthy bread few days back. We are not a great fan of bread and very rarely I bake breads. Few years back,  I had joined a  cookery class to learn  various cakes, breads, cookies, ice creams, chinese dishes and some other stuffs . There I learnt this  bread. Since then I baked it a few times and every time it has come perfectly. I set aside the dough for about 4 hours to rise higher enough to get the light and soft bread.   Usually, I store bread  at  room temperature  up to 3 days. Therefore I make only one loaf at a time. I make sandwiches and toast with this bread. Freshly made green chutney  with fresh cucumber and tomato slices make a healthy sandwich with this bread.  A layer of jam, butter and cheese on the toasted bread slices make delicious sandwiches and kids love it for sure. You can make bread upma, delicious double ka meetha, bread gulab jamun and so on.
