Food Storage Recipe: Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Honey Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

honeywholewheatIngredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 package quick rise yeast
¾ c. milk (can also use powdered milk)
¾ c. water
2 T. honey
2 T. vegetable oil
2 c. whole wheat flour

Directions:

Combine 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, salt, and yeast in large mixing bowl. Heat milk, water, honey and oil until hot to touch. Gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add ½ cup all-purpose flour. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in whole wheat flour and enough additional all-purpose flour to make stiff dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover, let rest for 10 minutes. Spray loaf pan with vegetable pan spray. Roll dough to 12×8” rectangle. Roll up from short end to make loaf. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place, seam side down, in prepared pan. Cover, let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan, cool in a wire rack.

I can’t remember where I found this recipe, but I loved it so much I added it to my recipe binder and make it all the time. It’s not identical to store-brought bread but it is yummy yummy yummy with butter and honey on it. My kids love it too!

    Jodi,
    Thank you for this recipe! We have been eating flat little bricks for the last month trying all kinds of different recipes until I noticed something about your recipe that I had not seen anywhere else…there's only ONE RISE! I only use INSTANT YEAST that I pick up at Costco and I have rarely been successful with the majority of recipes I've followed because, I believe, they've always stressed the punching down and 2nd rise. I think it may be one of the perks of instant yeast that you can skip the 1st rise and punch down. Anyway, the loaf baked up perfectly, and I waited a whole 15 minutes before diving into it…crumb and taste were outstanding. Everyone, try this recipe! The only change I made was that I kneaded about 15-18 minutes until my dough passed the “window-pane” test.

    This Honey Whole Wheat Bread looks great. Can’t wait to try it. I was wondering if you have an on-line recipe file that I could download and browse through for ideas? It would be nice to have a food storage recipe file to help aid in ideas for cooking.

    Thank you,

    If we are storing our own grains, how do we make all-purpose flour? What is the ratio of hard wheat to soft wheat?

    I was just wondering….
    You mentioned in the recipe that powdered milk could be substituted for real milk. Do you just substitute it straight across or do you also need to add water to it?

    Why does everyone want their homemade bread to taste like store-bought? I don’t want a recipe that tastes like it came from the grocery store–I think homemade tastes so much better!

      HW, I think everyone tries to get that “store-bought” flavor/texture because our family’s demand it. Or so that we can make good sandwiches. Some homemade bread is just too thick to be good as sandwich bread. But I agree, homemade bread is sooooo delicious. Like I said we love it with butter and honey on top, it’s sort of like a cake-type treat. If you love homemade bread this is a really good recipe!
