Home Milled Whole Wheat Bread (for bread machine)

Kassandra Allen


My fiancée and I have recently started milling our own whole grain flour in an attempt to be ecologically and economically friendly, but we've had a very hard time figuring out how to get our bread just right, as the home milled stuff is quite a bit coarser than factory milled flour. Well, I finally figured it out! ...even though I had to compromise and use part factory milled, at least half of it is ours (and hopefully all of it will be once we get a better mill). :o)

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough


1 2 lb. loaf


5 Min


4 Hr


1 1/3 c
1/4 c
2 Tbsp
honey (or whole, raw sugar)
4 tsp
butter, melted
2 c
whole grain wheat flour (fresh milled is best)
2 c
unbleached all purpose wheat flour
1/8 c
vital wheat gluten flour
1 tsp
fine sea salt
1 1/4 tsp
active dry yeast

Directions Step-By-Step

Add ingredients to bread machine according to manufacturer's instructions.
If available, select the whole grain cycle, if not use the basic wheat or white cycle.
If machine allows "extended rise", select 20 mins.
Select bread color "medium".
Press "start" and walk away! Enjoy your bread about 4 hours later (I set mine overnight, so we have a fresh loaf in the morning).
