Simple Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

  • 3-4 Cups Hard White Wheat
  • 1-1/2 Cups Warm Milk
  • 1 packet Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 3 Tbsp Softened Butter

Recipe Instructions

  1. Grind 3-4 Cups hard white wheat.  
  2. With dough hook in place, add warm milk, yeast, honey, butter, and about 1-1/2 cups of flour into the mixing bowl.  Use the “M” switch to incorporate.
  3. For enhanced flavor and texture allow the batter to sit for 15-30 minutes, until it becomes bubbly.
  4. Start the mixer on Speed 1 and slowly increase to Speed 2.  Add remaining flour, a little at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Continue kneading at Speed 2 for -8 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  5. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover.  Allow to rise until doubled in size.  
  6. Punch dough down, shape into a nice loaf and place in a greased loaf pan.  Cover and allow to rise one more time until doubled.
  7. Bake at 350ºF for 30-40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 190ºF.
