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!

How to Make Kid Friendly Whole Wheat Bread


  • 1Dissolve yeast into warm water. (I like to put the warm water in a large 4 cup glass measuring cup.)
  • 2Combine butter, molasses, honey and salt. Mix well. Add yeast/water mixture.
  • 3Mix 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.
  • 4Punch 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.
  • 5Gently remove loaves from pans and let cool on wire or wood racks. Butter tops or drizzle with honey and then butter tops.
