Easiest Whole Wheat Bread

Easiest Whole Wheat Bread created by Kelley52

Lets just say that if I can make this anyone can! A delicious soft wheat bread that even my kids enjoy. I got this recipe from a food storage class that I attended. The sample that I tasted gave me hope that I can make a delicious wheat bread too. Lemon juice in the recipe gives the bread a light and fine texture and gluten provides elasticity and strength and helps to retain moisture. This is an adapted recipe by a lady by the name of Jamie Rasmussen.*If you can use wheat flour that comes from "Soft White Wheat" instead of "Hard Red Wheat" the results will be a lighter color bread and an even more tender crumb.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix together the first three ingredients in mixer with dough hook.
  • Add water all at once and mix for one minute; cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Add salt, oil honey or sugar and lemon juice and beat for one minute or until combined.
  • Add last flour, 1 cup at a time beating between each cup.
  • Beat for 6 to 10 minutes until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • This makes a very soft dough.
  • Preheat oven for 1 minute to lukewarm and turn off.
  • Turn dough out onto oiled surface; divide and shape into loaves and place in oiled bread pans.
  • Let rise in warm oven 10-15 minutes or until dough reaches top of pan (for some reason this about a half hour for me).
  • Do not remove bread from oven; turn oven to 350 and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Remove from pans and cool on racks.

    This bread is very good. Very moist & a bit chewy. I sprayed my loaves w/ water & sprinkled them w/ oats, & sunflower seeds before baking. Thanks for the post.

    This is my go-to bread recipe. My family loves it and we don't buy bread anymore. Thanks!

    Given that I've now made this bread on a weekly basis for the last six months, it's about time I rate it! This is by far the tastiest and most fail-proof whole wheat bread I've ever tried. It's incredibly light and fluffy. Slight changes: I use 1.33 units for one 9x5 pan, I use 1/4 cup of vital wheat gluten, and I let it rise for 30 mins. in a bowl before I transfer it to the loaf pan, where I let it rise another 30 before baking. Thanks Ridgely!
