Tonight may have been the best bread machine loaf we’ve had. I’ve tweaked this recipe half a dozen times now, and this was the best so far. We had it warm and with a little butter. The slight sweetness from the honey and faint nuttiness from the whole wheat make for a delicious combo.
Honey Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine
Makes: 1 lb loaf
1 cup warm water
1/4 c melted butter
2 T honey
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
4 tsp vital wheat gluten
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
Add ingredients to machine according to manufacturer’s recommendations. For mine, I put all the liquid ingredients and the salt on bottom. Then, I add the flours and vital wheat gluten. Last, I make a well in the flour and add the yeast (making sure it does not touch the liquid). My loaf took about 3 hours and 50 minutes on the Whole Wheat 1 lb setting.
