Honey Wheat Berry Bread

Recipe by Belinda M.
READY IN: 30mins




  • **To cook wheat berries**.
  • Combine 1/2 cup rinsed wheat berries and 2 cups water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered for about 1 ½ to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, adding water if necessary. ( Cook until soft and some are popping open)
  • Drain any standing water before adding the cooked wheat berries to the dough.
  • Add drained wheat berries and 1 cup of cold water in the bread machine pan, Cool to lukewarm.
  • Add the rest of the liquid ingredients followed by the dry ingredients on top, yeast will be last.
  • Set bread machine to dough setting. Check in a few minutes, if dough looks too dry or too wet add a few tablespoons of warm water or flour to get a good soft dough consistency.
  • When dough setting is complete (my machine is 1 ½ hours) remove dough from bread machine pan onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a roll. Put in a bread pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Let rise for about 40 minutes to 1 hour or until about 1 ½ inches above pan.
  • Cook on 350 degrees on middle rack of oven for about 30 to 35 minutes. Should be golden brown ( when thumped with your finger on the bottom of the loaf it should sound hollow )
  • Remove bread from pan to cooling rack to cool. Let it cool at least 1 hour before slicing.
