Rustic Strawberry Brown Bread


          Here is yet another healthy version of a whole wheat flour bread with some pureed strawberry and flavoured with cardamom powder. It is a rustic kind of bread. Easy and simple to prepare, this delicious bread can be enjoyed with butter, jam, eggs or just the way you like it.






  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. active yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/3 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1/3 cup strawberry puree (I used frozen ones)
  • fresh strawberry to garnish (opt)







          In a small bowl, mix together yeast, sugar and lukewarm water. Mix well and cover. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.

          In a separate bowl, mix together whole wheat flour, salt and cardamom powder. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, followed by the yeast mix and the strawberry puree.

          Combine everything with a spoon. Adjust the puree accordingly. My dough was very soft and loose.

          Set aside for 1-2 hours. Dust some flour and punch back the dough. Make into a round shape. Place on a baking tray lined with butter paper.

          Bake in a microwave oven for 25-30 minutes at 180 degrees C. Transfer to a wire rack and set  aside to cool down. Cut into slices and enjoy with jam, butter or just the way you like it.
