From Original cook's comments: This is a dense whole wheat bread. Using applesauce instead of butter and honey in place of sugar make this bread very dense but delicious. I make in the bread machine. My comments: This worked first time for me using the rapid bake cycle on my Black & Decker bread machine. It is a dense tasty loaf. The only change I made was the order I put the ingredients in the loaf pan. Note: The rapid bake cycle on my bread machine is approx. 2 hours long. I have noticed that some bread machines have a super rapid cycle of approx. 1 hour. I doubt this recipe would work on a super rapid cycle.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Simply add ingredients in order shown and start on the rapid setting. (My note: this is order for my B&D bread machine. I used the light crust setting.).
  2. Note from the original cook: I've had much better luck with the rapid setting than the whole wheat setting.
  3. Note from the original cook: Because whole wheat flour is heavy I use 2 pkg of yeast. If you only have one pkg, make this with the whole wheat setting or the setting that allows the most rise time.
