Terrific Whole Wheat in the Breadmaker!

Terrific Whole Wheat in the Breadmaker! created by Annacia

I developed this in a "Black&Decker All-in-one horizontal" model. The key to baking a successful 100% whole wheat loaf, I have found (at least in a machine!!) is to have the ingredients at ROOM TEMPERATURE. When they are, this dough rises high to make a light,soft loaf. It's a staple in our house, hope you enjoy!

directions

  • NOTE: If you keep your whole wheat flour in the freezer (which is a good idea) be sure to remove it a few hours before-hand so it can warm to room temperature.
  • Measure the ingredients into your machine's loaf pan in the order listed. Be sure NOT to let the yeast touch the water. (By the way, I use bread machine yeast but I'm pretty sure regular yeast works too!).
  • Set it to "grain" and press start (so it should say 4:10 on the little screen).
  • When finished, remove from the machine, pull out the paddle if it's stuck in, and cover with a tea towel (to keep the crust soft) on a cooling rack. Let the loaf cool at least 20 minutes before slicing.
  • It should stay fresh 4-5 days in normal weather. We usually slice and freeze a portion of the loaf and it defrosts beautifully. Also makes lovely breadcrumbs!

    Awesome!! I let the breadmachine do the hardwork, shaped it and baked it in the oven as batards. The breads were awesome! My little one can't stop eating it with butter. Beautiful crust too. Makes two long batards baked for 350 F for 35 mins. Thanks very much.

    WOW... This is the best eggless bread I have ever tasted. It has a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture, not too sweet, not too salty, just PERFECT... I also use a Black and Decker and it works wonders for this bread! Fantastic!

    This whole wheat bread is excellent. I've already made it 3 times this week! It's light and fluffy and very soft. My kids devour their PB&J when I use this bread. Thanks so much for posting.

    Wow, just as delicious as everyone else has mentioned. I used this as my debut bread in a Panasonic Automatic Bread Maker SD-YD250 (LOVE IT!), and after going directly by the recipe, I got an almost perfect loaf, but it had overrisen and fallen. So, the next loaf, I used 1.5 tsp of yeast, and it came out perfect for that particular machine. Thanks for a great recipe!!
