I got this recipe from some Amish friends and adapted it a bit. My kids will get into the bread box like they're getting into the cookie jar!

    warm water

How to Make Kid Friendly Whole Wheat Bread


  1. Dissolve yeast into warm water. (I like to put the warm water in a large 4 cup glass measuring cup.)
  2. Combine butter, molasses, honey and salt. Mix well. Add yeast/water mixture.
  3. Mix flour and vital wheat gluten. I just stir them together with a fork. Add flour/gluten mixture gradually. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Place in greased bowl and let rise until double. (If you don't have a warm oven go ahead and place it in a sunbeam on your counter.) You can cover this with plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick spray or non-stick foil.
  4. Punch down. Let dough rest a few minutes. Shape into 4 loaves. Place in greased bread pans. Let rise about 2 hour. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes.
  5. Gently remove loaves from pans and let cool on wire or wood racks. Butter tops or drizzle with honey and then butter tops.
