Honey Wheat Bread

This recipe is intended for a bread machine.

Honey Wheat Bread
Yields: 1 small loaf
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free

  • 1 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Bread Flour
  • 2 tsp fine Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp Quick Rise Yeast

  1. Warm Water in microwave for about 30 seconds (you want warm, not hot water)
  2. Pour Water into bread pan
  3. Add Honey
  4. Add both Flours
  5. Smooth out Flours & gently tap the sides of bread pan to help Flour settle and distribute evenly
  6. Sprinkle on Sea Salt & then Yeast all over Flour
  7. Set bread machine to Whole Wheat setting or Basic Quick setting
  8. Allow Bread to cool 20-30 minutes before cutting

My2Cents: The order of ingredients is very important, you don't want the Yeast coming into contact with the Water until it's time - the bread machine knows what to do.  Except for the Water, all ingredients should be at room temperature.  Experiment by substituting Oat Flour for the WW Flour for a less dense, crumblier texture.
