Description

We love this honey wheat bread slathered with butter—and more honey. So good!

Ingredients

  • 2-¼ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • ¾ cups Warm Water, divided
  • 1-½ cup 2% Milk
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted, Plus More For Brushing On Baked Loaves
  • ⅓ cups Honey
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3 cups Bread Flour

Preparation

Makes 2 loaves of bread.

Bloom yeast in sugar and 1/2 cup warm water. In a stand mixer, combine milk, remaining 1/4 cup water, melted butter, honey, salt and whole wheat flour. Add yeast mixture, mix just till combined and allow to sit 15 minutes.

Add bread flour and once dough is combined, using a dough hook, mix 6 minutes (or 10 minutes if kneading by hand) until dough forms a smooth ball.

Place dough in a greased bowl covered with plastic wrap. Let rise until nearly doubled in size. (Depending upon the time of year, it can take anywhere from 45-75 minutes.)

Punch down dough and divide dough in 2 pieces.

Roll each piece of dough into a 9-inch wide rectangle, then roll rectangles into loaves. Place loaves in buttered bread loaf pans. Spray tops of loaves generously with cooking spray, cover loosely with plastic wrap (they will expand beyond the height of the pan), and let rise until nearly doubled in size. This can take 30-60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375ºF and bake uncovered for 25-35 minutes until tops are deep golden brown. They should sound hollow when tapped.

Butter tops of bread loaves after removing from oven. Cool before slicing.

Delicious bread! DO NOT MAKE THIS IN THE BREAD MACHINE. I pulled my dough out in time to finish in the oven, but I narrowly escaped a huge mess.

I make this all of the time now, and it comes out perfect every time. I even used it for my stuffing at Christmas last year! It is a great bread!

First time making bread and this was easy to make, especially with instructions for using bread hook and mixer. Yummy!

So simple and easy! Love it! I’m still new to bread making and have been trying lots of different recipes. This one is going in my “keeper” box :D

Very easy as well as good, made from ingredients on hand. Next time I would add little more salt as we found the bread slightly bland. This is a recipe I will use often.
