A great whole wheat bread! I made two beautiful loaves that rose nicely in about 50 minutes with a damp towel over them & under the hanging light on my kitchen island. Both loaves browned in about 25 minutes & I placed foil over them for the last 10 minutes they baked. I served this bread with a quick honey-butter spread & alongside recipe #281208. Thanks for sharing your granny's recipe, PVW! Made in gratitude for encouraging my interest in photo taking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixer bowl add water, oil, honey, yeast, salt and white flour mix together.
  2. Add 3 cups of whole wheat flour and blend together.
  3. Add remaining flour in small amounts to get a firm but elastic texture (more flour may be added if needed).
  4. Knead on high speed for 10 minutes. Dough should be firm but elastic.
  5. Form into 2 loaves and place in well greased loaf pans. Let rise until doubled in size. (Could be covered with a damp kitchen dish towel) about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. (if you press on the dough at the corner of the pan it should dimple (or leave an indentation) when ready).
  6. Bake at 350'F for 30-45 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when lightly tapped (if necessary, cover loosely with foil the last 5-10 minutes of baking to prevent over browning) Immediately remove bread from pans. Cool Completely on wire racks.
