    This recipe works well in my cheap bread machine also. I added 1/2 cup raw sunflower kernels, and 1/2 cup raisins. I used bread macine yeast- 1/2 tsp per cup of flour, i just put in 2tsp and had to add more flour to make it less sticky, very good bread and no azobromade, the most important reason to make your own bread!!

  5. Thanks for the truly easy recipe. I made bread for the very first time on the weekend and I'm going to have a go at making it again today :)

  6. This worked extremely well. Thanks for posting. I had a recipe I got from my Mum - but that would have required a set of scales, something I no longer possess. I also recommend delaying adding the flour to the yeast mixture until you are sure it is active (if it is, it will foam). The jar of dried yeast I found in the back fo the fridge was a year past its "best before" date. picture here

    Being diabetic I used a 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of splenda instead of just sugar. I also substituted soymilk for regular milk and added a teaspon of maple flavoring for a little more taste. Came out very good. Thanks

    Hi,

    I have tried your recipe 2 times, and while I love the aroma and taste, I have never managed to get the bread go as high as the loaf pan+1 inch.

    I am sure am doing something wrong somewhere... would greatly appreciate your tips in fixing the issue.

    I have a 9*5 loaf pan.

    First time, after the dough doubled, I punched it in, but no matter how long I let the dough stand, it would never raise after that. Result - I got a pretty short (half the height of the loaf pan) bread - that was "very thick"

    Second time around, after the dough doubled, I did not punch down the dough (thinking I punched it down too much last time) and let it sit for another 90 minutes or so. It just remained the same size as after doubling. At the end of baking, it became shorter !!!

    Your advice is greatly appreciated, as I'd love to make fresh home made bread.

    Thanks

  12. Hi,

    Here few tips
    1. Make sure the yeast is fresh.
    2. The room temperature should be warm the warmer the better if its cold in the house try warming the oven and then turning it off and let it rise inside the over.
    Thanks

    I live in the northeast and finding a warm place to let the dough rise is a problem...that was until today...It is sunny out and the car is parked in the sun. I put a thermometer in there and found the temp. was 88 degree F. So my bread is rising in the car right now and may I say it is going beautifully!! Just wanted to share.

    Just a tip for whole wheat bread...add 1-2 Tbsp. of Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten. It makes a huge difference when cooking with whole grains. It will help your bread rise more and be softer.

  16. Thanks for a nice and easy recipe. The photos are a big help. I like the use of honey as opposed to processed sugar. It gives another nuance to the flavor. Keep up the good work.

    Wonderful recipe. I had trouble with getting the loaf to rise, but the bread didn't come out dense. It's possible my loaf pan might be larger than the one used in the photos- it's a 9"x5"- but either way, I love the bread.
    Here is the nutritional information I've calculated for 1 whole loaf using the USDA's nutritional database-
    2600 calories. 490g carbs. 62g protein. 66g fat. 54g fiber.

    Should you dissolve the yeast in the warm water before adding the other ingredients. The recipe reads as if you mix all the wet ingredients together. For the yeast to activate it seems that the milk and other ingredients should be warm.

    I just made this recipe. I substituted the oil for Dannon's Light Vanilla Yogurt (I usually sub yogurt for oil in my recipes..). It turned out beautifully. It hasn't cooled yet, so I'm not 100% sure on the texture, but it can't be too dense as I had 2 really great rises!! The crust is so crisp and lovely...yum!

    I live in Minnesota and during the winter months I put my dough in the microwave with a cup of HOT water. Does the trick every time.

  38. This is a great recipe! The bread came out very soft and moist and the best part is that the recipe uses whole wheat flour ONLY. All the other recipes I found that said Honey Wheat or Honey Whole Wheat actually called for bread or all-purpose flour. My family loved the loaf I made. Certainly going to be a regular in our house.

    This recipe was good and easy to do. It also tastes even better when you mill the flour fresh or buy fresh flour. I use the WonderMill Jr hand grain mill, you can check it out at www.wondermill.com to learn more about the hand mill. After eating homemade bread, I will never eat store bought bread again because it lacks big time in taste and nutrition.

  47. Hello!
    the bread is baking as we speak! 20 mins to go...just wondering, my bread was rising beautifully but then began to get more flat...and now its flat in the oven. I followed the recipe and the yeast was active...not sure what went wrong here...any input is great! thanks!

  49. The bread was delicious, but the dough needs more time to rise than the two hours or so specified in the recipe. My grandmother said her mother would often leave her dough to rise overnight, then put it in the oven in the morning.

  51. I've used this recipe several times. I love the flavor, but sometimes my loaf develops a huge air pocket all the way through the loaf. And sometimes it is so crumbly it's hard to use for sandwiches.

    Any thoughts about what I could do differently?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  52. The air bubble maybe cause by letting the dough sit to long in step 6. Sorry I have no answer for the crumbly part maybe some thing to do with the ingredients. Never happen to me. Thanks

    It was great. It took a little more rising time than stated, but not much. It tastes great. Looks beautiful. And it slices better than any other breads I have made - even when still hot. I do wish it would hold up better for sandwiches, though. It will fall apart if I try to eat it like that. Love that it has minimal ingredients and the only four is whole wheat. A recipe that will be passed on for generations, I hope.

  64. If you're having rising problems, I sprinkled 2 and 1/2 tsp of active dry yeast into a 1/2 cup of hot water in a cup, added a pinch of sugar, and set it aside to rise on its own a bit... about 10 minutes. I mixed the honey, oil etc with the other 1/2 cup of hot water before adding the yeast.

  70. This is fabulous! I proofed the yeast first in the water (with about a 1/4 tsp of sugar) and also doubled the recipe. I rise my bread in a warmed up oven (my house is drafty and it is cold in the winter where I live) and this one rose beautifully first and second time around and grew even as it cooked. I just kept adding flour 1/2 cup at a time until it pulled together nicely. Sitting here patiently waiting for it to cool down so I can have a bite ;)
