Whole Wheat Bread

"This is a recipe using 100% whole wheat flour. My mother made this when I was growing up. Homemade bread is my ultimate comfort food. If it's warm from the oven, I'll choose it over dessert. I get so much satisfaction when I pull homemade bread or rolls out of the oven. This recipe makes 3 large loaves and uses basic ingredients. You won't be dissapointed! Delicious with butter and homemade jam on top. Yummy!"

Ready In:
2hrs 45mins
3 loaves




  • Soften yeast in warm water for about 5 minutes.
  • Dissolve honey in hot water; stir in salt and oil. Cool to lukewarm.
  • Add softened yeast to honey mixture.
  • Gradually mix in flour until gluten develops and the dough begins pulling away from sides of mixing bowl. Don't add too much flour or bread will be too dry.
  • Spray sides of bowl with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until double in size.
  • Punch dough down and form into 3 equal loaves.
  • Place in greased loaf pans and let rise again until doubled.
  • Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. (I put pans on bottom rack of oven).
  • Place pans on wire racks and cool for 5-10 minutes before removing bread from pans.
  • Let cool at least 10 minutes longer before cutting.

    Excellent recipe! Been looking for years for a all whole wheat flour bread recipe. I changed it a little to 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup black strap molasses. Perfect texture! Thank you for sharing it!!!

    A very nice recipe. I don't bake very often, just because I prefer cooking; but I do enjoy fresh bread. This was a light bread with a very good flavor. It came out perfect!<br/>Thx for sharing
