Honey Wheat Bread

Lisa wethington


This bread is fantastic! It is great for sandwich's and toast! It also makes the best french toast ever!

My husband and kids love this bread! I don't buy store bought bread anymore. I make this recipe at least once or twice a week.

I always have request from friends and family for a loaf!

I even make this bread for Communion at church once a month!

Makes 2 loaves

30 Min


2 c
warm water(110 degrees f)
2 c
whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp
active dry yeast
1/3 c
1/3 c
vegetable oil
1 tsp
4 to 5 c
bread flour

Directions Step-By-Step

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add honey and stir well. Let mixture stand for about 10 minutes, mixture should be a little bubbly.
Mix in salt, vegetable oil, and whole wheat flour.
Gradually add your bread flour, 1 cup at a time. When your dough starts to pull away from the sides of your bowl, turn onto a lightly flour surface to work in remaining flour. Knead until smooth and elastic, then place in a well oiled bowl. Turn several times to coat your dough.
Cover with a damp cloth, and allow dough to rise in a warm place until double in size, about 45 minutes.
Punch down dough and divide into 2 loaves. Place each loaf into a well greased 9x5 pan. Allow to rise until dough is 1 to 1 1/2 inches above pan.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
