Whole Wheat Bread Recipe.


I heard a rumor that some of you dears wanted my whole wheat bread recipe after seeing this picture. I adapted my recipe from my mother in laws famous bread recipe.

Whole Wheat Bread

2 C. warm water
2 T. yeast
1/2 C. oil
2 eggs
1/4 C. honey
7 C. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t. salt

I grind my wheat bi-weekly right before I bake my bread. Saturdays and Wednesdays are bread baking days and provides four loaves to last us the week. [the children take cold lunch, that is why we go through so much] At the moment, I only have hard red wheat in storage, so that's what I've been grinding.

Proof yeast in 1/2 C. warm water and a little sugar. Add remaining water, oil, eggs, honey, and half the flour in mixer. Mix well. While still mixing add salt and remaining flour until sides of bowl clean themselves and dough is slightly sticky. Knead 10 minutes. Form into loaves and place in sprayed pans. Let rise until double. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Make sure you enjoy a warm slice from the oven smothered with homemade jam. It's really lovely.

  1. Yay! Thank you. What kind of wheat grinder do you use? I've been thinking about the kitchenaid attachment for a while but, I'm worried about the right kind to buy. Well, it looks so yummy!

  5. Since my mom never could convince me to let her teach me how to make bread, I'm glad she was able to pass it along to you.

  6. Homemade bread and jam is one of my downfalls eating-wise, and this picture reminds me why. It looks DIVINE.

  7. I second on how delish that looks! I am also wondering what kind of grinder you use and if you like it. I am wanting to grind my flour fresh instead of buying the flour and it loosing nutrition and flavor.

  8. My in-laws bought me this wheat grinder for Christmas and I LOVE it! It's great quality and is super easy to clean up. It doesn't take up too much space either.

  11. Nothing makes a house into a home more than the smell of fresh baked bread. Yummo! Oh, how I wish I didn't love carbs as much as I do.

  12. I need to get me a wheat grinder. I have all this wheat, it just makes sense. I need one. And it would be easy to justify the cost if I was making bread as often as you do.

    Inspiring!

  14. We go through four loaves of bread a week - no cold lunches, 2 kids, 2 adults - so you are not alone. I love to make my own bread and want nothing else. You'll have to post on homemade jams next.
