Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Honey Whole Wheat Bread
Stouts' recipe
I discovered the recipe for this bread at "Two Peas and Their Pod".

It was pretty simple to make- even without a Kitchen Aid- and is delicious!
The bread has a great texture, and great flavor. I am going to try to make this more often, instead of buying store bread.
This recipe makes 2 loaves. (Sorry for the bad picture!)

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 T vital wheat gluten (find it at Whole Foods, Bob's Red Mill, King Arthur, etc.)
2 packets of yeast (I used rapid rise)
2 1/2 cups warm water

In a large mixing bowl (preferably a KitchenAid), add the 3 cups flour, wheat gluten, and yeast. Stir. Add in warm water and stir until combined. Let sit for 10 minutes.

1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 T lemon juice
1 T salt
3 1/2-4 cups whole wheat flour

Mix the oil, honey, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture after the 10 minutes. Mix until combined. Add in the additional flour and mix. Now knead the dough for ten minutes with the dough hook- or by hand! When it is done divide the dough into two loaves. Make sure they are even. Shape them into loaf form. Place the dough into 2 loaf pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with a clean towel and let rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. After the loaves have risen, bake them for 30 minutes. They should be golden brown. Let cool before slicing, if you can wait:) You can freeze one of the loaves if you wish.

  1. I am so glad you tried it! We love it! It is so easy too!

  2. I will have to give that a try. Much healthier than that store bought junk with all the chemically additives. I have yet to make a yeast bread!

  3. It is really yummy Vanessa! I really want to make more today, but we just bought bread yesterday! Soon, soon...
