Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Okay, everyone, this bread recipe is a definite keeper. I found it on and then of course, modified it quite a I always do! To be honest, I don't think I'll every buy wheat bread from the store again. This is so good and let's just say my hubby is going to be the happiest guy on earth tomorrow when he opens his lunch bag. (A tuna salad sandwich on homemade bread awaits him)

Honey Whole Wheat Bread
  • 1 1/8 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran (if you don't have wheat bran substitute wheat flour)
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (may also use veg/canola oil)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
Add ingredients according to the manufacturer's directions to your bread machine. Use the wheat bread cycle and light color setting. Most bread machines tell you to add the ingredients in the order they are listed--that's exactly what I did.

Feel free to play with the wheat flour and bran ratios--there's a lot of wiggle room there to make it to your liking. I'm going to add some flaxseed next time to give it an even healthier boost.


p.s. The picture above is not my own--the bread didn't last long enough to get a pic. :D

Nice going! Bread machines must be pretty sweet. Makes me wish I had one (or a roommate who made homemade bread.)

You should buy one off Craigslist--they're way cheap and worth the money. I'll look for some on Houston's list and e-mail any good ones I find!
