Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)
I am not a huge fan of whole wheat bread but this one doesn't taste like your typical whole wheat bread. This makes a 2 pound loaf. I use King Arthur Flour (all-purpose) in my machine -- not bread flour -- and it comes out perfect for all the doughs I make. I guessed on baking time since it's different depending on how you bake it.
- Ready In:
- 1 1⁄3 cups milk
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 teaspoons butter
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons yeast
- Add ingredients to your machine in the order the manufacturer suggests ~ with mine I start with liquids and end with yeast.
- Select whole grain cycle if you have one or the basic white bread cycle.
- I usually just make the dough in the machine (on the dough cycle), put it in a greased 9x5 bread pan, and bake at 350º until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

This was a fantastic success!! I wasn't sure what kind of yeast to use, so I used 2 1/4 of RapidRise/Bread Machine yeast. That was the only change I made. I used whole milk and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Jim says the taste is awesome and tastes just like a good wheat bread should taste like. The texture is dense, without being too dense. It's a good solid bread with a good taste and is super yummy with butter and jelly! I used my bread machine on the whole wheat cycle and medium crust. Perfection!!Reply
