Overnight Bread

For this week last bread I wanted to try sourdough bread. But I was a bit confused in making sour dough starter. Not only confused but little scared to try my hands on sourdough starter especially for this BM. . Because I don't want to waste time, I have very less time to finish all my bakes. And now I still have to bake my last four bakes. So I decided to make a overnight bread, this also very new to me. I don't know whether I get a perfect texture and shape or not. My first attempt was a big flop the bread turned out heard and dense, we felt very difficult to finish that bread. Were I made a mistake I didn't remember I have to recollect my memory. May be I have added a very less amount of yeast!!! may be I don't know. But the second time I was very much happy with the bread it is soft and not much dense. But one thing I realize is  making overnight bread is much easy then normal bread, if you like that flavor.
Let's check the recipe..

Whole wheat flour  ----  1 cup
All purpose flour  ----  2 cups
Yeast   ----  1/4 teasp
Sugar   ----  1/2 tea sp
Salt   ----  1/2 tea sp
Milk   ----  1/4 cup
Water  ---  3/4 cup
Method :---
1. Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl.
2. Knead this dough for 10 to 15 minutes make a soft and stiff dough.
3. Give a loaf shape grease a loaf tin and place the dough in the loaf tin cover with a cling wrap and leave it a side for half an hour .In the original recipe they give 1 to 2 hours time before keeping it in the fridge but in Chennai humid climate I think in one hour the first rise will be finish so I kept it out side for half an hour out side so that the raising process will start in the dough.
4. Keep the loaf tin in the fridge for over night.
5. Next morning take it out and leave it a side for 45 minutes to carry on the raise.
6. Pre heat the oven at 200 degree C. and reduce the heat to 180 degree C.
7. Bake the bread in pre heated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or till golden on top...
