Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup or so of honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon SAF instant yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon dough enhancer
  • 1/2 tablespoon wheat gluten
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups whole wheat flour
Instructions
  1. Start adding the ingredients in the order shown above with one exception into your mixing bowl…start with 2 cups of flour and slowly add more flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. I use a Bosch Mixer. I grew up making bread without a mixer. It can be done by hand. I grew up letting my bread rise twice so I still do that. Old habits are hard to break!

    I mix it for 10 minutes in my Bosch. Cover with greased plastic wrap until it doubles in size. Punch down and form dough into two one-pound loaves or less if your bread pans are larger. I let the dough rise one more time with greased plastic wrap. Bake the bread at 350 degrees for 27-30 minutes. If your pans are larger you will bake your bread longer. You will love making whole wheat bread, I promise!!
