Cook Time: 30 mins Total Time: 2 hours
Yield: 2 loaves Category: Bread
Method: Baking Cuisine: International


6 to 6-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (ww regular, ww bread, or white whole wheat all work
2-1/2 cups warm water (between 105-110 degrees)
1-1/2 tablespoons instant active dry yeast (not rapid rise) – regular active dry yeast can
be used as well
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup oil
2-1/2 teaspoons salt
(1-1/2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten- OPTIONAL (I don’t use this anymore))


1. Combine water, yeast and 2 cups of the flour in a mixing bowl. Set aside to sponge for 15-
20 minutes, until risen and bubbly (warmer weather takes 15 min, cooler temps usually
needs 20).
2. Add honey, oil, salt, (gluten, if using), and 4 cups of flour. Mix until dough starts to clean
sides of bowl. Change to dough hook (or turn out to knead by hand), and knead 6 to 7
minutes (10 by hand). Add only a few tablespoons of flour at a time if dough sticks to
sides, being careful not to add too much.
3. Form into two loaves and place in greased 9×5″ pans. Allow to rise in a warm place for
about 60 minutes, or 15-30 min. longer if needed to reach 1/2 to 1-inch above pans (i.e.,
cold kitchens may need the longer time). Preheat oven to 350 degrees ten minutes before
rising time is done.
4. Bake for 30 minutes, rotating halfway through if needed.
5. Immediately remove from pans to cool on a rack. Allow to completely cool before slicing.
