Absolutely the most amazing whole wheat bread I've ever eaten. I've tried several wheat breads, but they all require either some white flour or end up hard as rocks. This bread is light, fluffy, and so full of flavor. I did substitute 1/3 cup honey for the sugar and replaced 1/2 cup water with 1/2 milk since I didn't have any dry milk. I also forfeited loaves and instead made large buns for sandwiches. I am not high altitude, so I baked 15 mins at 375 and 15 mins at 350 for a perfect golden brown. This recipe + locally ground whole wheat flour + local raw honey = AMAZING. I'll never use another whole wheat recipe. THANK YOU!
This is a great recipe. I've found a lot of success using weight measurements for the dry goods here's what I use: 12 grams fast rising yeast 3/4 cup warm water 120 grams whole wheat flour 2 cups warm water 240 grams whole wheat flour 34 grams dry milk 60 grams vital wheat gluten 10 grams salt 64 grams sugar 1/4 cup oil 480 grams whole wheat flour Get yourself a good scale and this works great every time!
WOW!!! This recipe has completely replaced store bought bread for my family! Perfect for sandwiches,and soooo much healthier. I made it exactly as directed, using advice from others to spray the tops while baking. I kneaded by hand (don't have a mixer), but since my family loves the bread so much, I will probably buy a heavy mixer. (I haven't had a good excuse yet;) thanks so much for this recipe!!!!
This is the most wonderful, tender, tasty whole wheat bread I have ever eaten! I threw away all the other recipes I had. This is the one!
This is the first bread recipe I've made using only whole wheat flour that actually turned out like bread and not a very large hocky puck. I'm so happy! My DH loves it , my daughter (the picky one) loves it. And it's healthy! Update: I've been making this bread for two months now. I cut the salt by half and use 1/4 cup honey in place of the white sugar. It's a little healthier and we like the taste better.
I halved all the ingredients then started with the sponge in my bread machine and 1 hour later added the rest in order and started the bread cycle. It is wonderful.
This bread tastes amazing just made my first batch and everybody loves it, normally when I try to make bread they all run a mile but this one they are asking for more so thanks for posting such a great recipe.
This recipe is amazing! I never thought I would find a recipe for whole wheat bread that I actually looked forward to eating. I used white whole wheat flour, subbed 1/2 cup of regular bread flour for the vital wheat gluten, used melted reduced calorie margerine instead of oil, and I reduced the sugar to 3 tablespoons. I love this recipe!!!!!
I made this yesterday afternoon and when I woke up this morning, a whole loaf was gone! Delicious! Definitely a keeper!
Easy, simple and perfect and no kneading! This is now my go-to bread recipe to replace store bought junk. It is perfectly textured to use for sandwich bread too! LOVE it!
