Do you have a favorite recipe for wheat bread started in the bread machine...

Recommended Posts

1 1/2 c. water

2 Tbsp. powdered milk (or wheat bran)

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/4 cup honey

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/4 cups bread flour

1/4 cup wheat gluten

1/2 cup oatmeal flakes (rye, 3 or 7 grain flakes work too)

1 1/2 tsp. yeast

1/3 cup chopped walnuts (or 2Tbsp. flax meal)


Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes; lower the temp to 350 and bake for 30 minutes. Turn loaf onto a cooling rack and cover loosely with a towel for at least 30 minutes.


If you use a light flour like Prairie Gold and oat flakes, the bread will have a nutty taste but look more like white bread. Hard red winter wheat flour and rye or 7 grain flakes make a shorter, denser loaf. It's our all-purpose recipe. We use it for toast, sandwiches, and sliced with a meal. It's a modified version of a recipe from my very first bread machine recipe book I bought years ago! If you do bake it in the machine (I sometimes do when I'm busy) use the whole wheat cycle.

Here is our favorite whole wheat bread recipe:


1 c. + 2 T. water

2 T. butter

2 T. honey

3 c. whole wheat flour

3 T. gluten

2 t. dough enhancer (optional, but I think it helps it stay fresh longer)

1 1/2 t. salt

2 T. yeast


This can be baked in the bread machine but I usually make it on the dough cycle and bake it myself at 350 for 30-40 minutes or so. It is so good! I use freshly milled hard white flour but I used this recipe with store-bought ww flour before I got a grain mill and it turned out just fine.
