For this Honey Whole Wheat Bread I used Mrs. Carrigans recipe as inspiration. This is the first 100% whole wheat loaf I ever made. The taste is lovely. The honey was an excellent addition to the sweetness of the loaf. The lad likes it a fair bit and told me I should make it again.
2 cup warm water
1/2 cup honey
5 teaspoons active dry yeast
4 tablespoons butter melted
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoon salt
Mix water, honey, yeast and 1 cup of flour together. Add butter. Mix well.
Add 1 cup flour along with salt, mix well.
Add remaining flour, 1 cup at a time. You might need more than four cups total.
Knead well, let rise until doubled in an oiled bowl.
Knead it again, you want the bread nice and smooth.
Place in bread pans, let it rise until higher than pan sides (at least 1/2 inch).
Bake in a 350 oven about 1/2 hour.
Enjoy hot bread with creamed honey on the top… Simply YUMMY!!!!! 🙂
NOTE: the original recipe called for some bread flour which I didn’t have, so my loaf came out a bit flat. I needed to knead it more than I did. So either make it with some bread flour (so about 1/2 and 1/2) or knead it a LONG time (longer than 8 minutes).
