Amish Soft Honey Whole Wheat Bread

"I've been looking for a soft all whole wheat bread, and I finally found it! This is in an Amish cookbook that I have, and I am writing it as it is written. I mix it with my KitchenAid. :) This is our sandwich bread that we have all the time on hand and the recipe can easily be cut into 1/3 to make just one loaf. :) 10/8/07 Corrections made to make bigger loaves. I usually use recipe #185778 to have a great rise."

directions

  • Mix water with yeast and sugar and let sit until foamy (about 10 minutes). In the meanwhile, put the 3 eggs (in the shell) in a bowl of hot water (to bring the eggs to room temperature).
  • Put flour, salt, and gluten in bowl.
  • Pour in yeast mixture and stir until combined. Add in honey, eggs, and crisco until combined, scraping sides. (I usually use an egg beater for this).
  • Add more wheat flour and knead until smooth.
  • Let set in warm place for about an hour until double in size.
  • Divide into 3 loaves. Let rise again in warm place until doubled (about 1-1/2 hours).
  • Bake as regular bread (I bake about 35 minutes at 375 or until the interior of the bread is 190 degrees using electric thermometer if you have one).
  • Enjoy!

    I have used this recipe maybe 10 times and love it. There is nothing like the smell of fresh baked bread to make me feel like everything is right in the world.

    This came out very nice, cut the recipe for two loafs, next time would make three smaller loafs, or 4 for the whole recipe. We are trying to use more wheat in our bread and this did stay soft was a nice bread.
