I love to make home made bread. The smell of freshly-baked bread is simply…mouth-watering. Most of the times I make buns. I think they are easy to share and eat at home, work or school and they are suitable for all meals: breakfast, lunch dinner.
Last week I wanted to try something different: a sandwich loaf. I followed pretty much my usual recipe, and I was impressed of the high bread I got.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp. Instant yeast (or active dry yeast)
- 1 Tbsp. Sugar (it helps using sugar but it works without as well, so it’s optional)
- One tsp salt
- 2 cups of warm water
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil (or any grape seeds oil)
- 1/4 Tsp turmeric
- about 1/4 cup additional bread flour to work the dough and flour the work surface
1. In a medium size bowl, add the warm water, sugar, and yeast. In about 10 minutes the yeast should be activated.
2. In the large bowl add the flour, salt, and turmeric; stir all together. Add the yeast mixture and the oil. Work/knead the dough for a few minutes or until it comes off easily from your hands. You might need to add a bit more flour when you work the dough if it’s too wet or still sticks to your fingers.
3. Put the dough in an oily bowl. Brush the top of the dough with oil and cover it with plastic wrap. Place the bowl in a warm place aside from any draft. Let it rise for about an hour. The dough should double the size.
4. Oil a loaf pan. Set the pan aside. Place the dough on a floured surface. Knead it for a minute by folding it a few times. Form a loaf shape and add it to the prepared loaf pan. Cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rise for another half hour.5
5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the bread for about 35 to 45 minutes until the top is golden brown. If you noticed that the top of the bread turns brown too soon, add a piece of aluminum foil to stop it from burning.
6. Let it cool completely on a wire rack.
Here is the result:
I hope you enjoyed a slice of the turmeric sandwich bread!

Great looking loaf! Hard to believe that such a small quantity of turmeric can give the bread such an intense color.
You got me Ronit. 🙂 It’s the amount I usually use in bread making: 1/4 teaspoon. I might have drop a bit more this time. Maybe I went close to 1/2 teaspoon. Thank you for your visit 🙂 Felicia 🙂
Either way, it’s a great color! 🙂
It’s so beautiful! It would be great for sandwiches at a party!
