2Holla. I find baking stressful. Because baking is a science and not art like cooking. You cannot adjust your recipe in between. Sometimes you cannot even see what’s happening in baking. Hence, I find it stressful. Add on it the fact that there will be more number of utensils to wash than in cooking. 😉

But you should never stop trying isn’t it? I make sandwiches for tiffin. Or a quick toast with omelette is also a good breakfast option. Hence, I like to have bread in my pantry. However, I do not like the idea of purchasing bread. Hence, I began baking breads.

So this is a whole wheat egg less bread. The difference is clearly evident when compared to flour/ maida bread. Flou/ Maida has that glutten that gives the elasticity in the white bread we enjoy. But we all know how dangerous and unhealthy that is for us. So I don’t completely avoid maida but try to whenever I can.

Hope you would give it a try and let me know your opinion.
