This was inspired by ThatBobbieGirl's recipe ##1079868. I added some things and changed some proportions around enough so that I feel comfortable calling this recipe my own, but I wanted to give credit where credit is due. This bread is 100% whole wheat, but it rises reliably in my bread machine and comes out all nice and soft and squishy on the inside, and stays fresh for a long time. It has come out beatifully every time I've made it, thus making it Zaar-worthy(in my humble opinion). Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Put ingredients on bread machine in the order your machine manual suggests( I use the order listed above).
  2. Set the machine to the whole wheat cycle, and set crust color to light(trust me on this, the honey in the dough browns really easily.) This recipe makes a 2 lb loaf.
  3. Let her rip!
  4. During the kneading cycle, check the consistency of the doughball-it should be smooth, and when you touch it, you should not come away with any dough residue on your fingers. If its too dry, add water 1 tablespoon at a time. If its too wet, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
