Honey Wheat Bread

Something that you may not know about me is my mild obsession with my bread maker. It’s one of my most beloved kitchen appliances next to my blender! One of my most favorite smells coming from my kitchen is fresh baked bread. Today, I thought I’d share with you a recipe for a honey wheat bread that is so easy and to die for! My family gobbled it up in no time!

Ingredients:

2 cups Wheat Flour

2 ¼ cups white bread flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups of lukewarm water

¼ cup honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 packet yeast

Directions:

Place ingredients into your bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. In my case, its wet ingredients, then dry ingredients, then the packet of yeast on top. (Everyone’s machine is different though)

Set the machine to the wheat bread setting if it has one otherwise just use the regular setting with a light crust.

When the bread is ready, I take it out and rub a little bit of butter over the top but that’s just a personal preference.

Enjoy!

  2. This looks yummy. Have you tried this in the oven? Would I need to make adjustments?

    Have a great week!

    Hi Deborah,

    Yes I’ve tried it in the oven. The measurements stay the same.

    Just dissolve the yeast in ½ cup warm water then add the honey and stir well. Then mix in the whole wheat flour, the rest of the water, salt and olive oil. I work in the bread flour gradually. Then just turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 15 minutes. When the dough is elastic I place it in a well oiled bowl covered with a damp cloth to rise for about 45 mins. The dough should be about double its size.

    Then I shape it into a loaf and place it in a well greased loaf pan. I let it rise again until the dough is just slightly above the pan.

    Then just bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes!

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
