I grew up with a Mom who made 12 loaves of bread by hand, each week.  I grew to hate homemade bread because it was heavy with a hard crust (she added too much flour and baked it too long).  As I was growing up and earned a degree in foods, I learned a lot about how things work when it came to making good food, especially bread.  Now I have friends who come over so that I can teach them how to make my yummy wheat bread. Be aware that is this is NOT 100% whole wheat, because I am using hard red wheat to grind my own flour, it is too heavy to make great 100% whole wheat bread.  For yummy 100% whole wheat bread use the hard white wheat flour. Plus I am using my Mom’s recipe with one addition. ;} Here we go.

Step 1:

Supplies:  For one 1 lb. loaf of bread (what I used is in parentheses)
1 cup fluid (warm water)
1 Tbs. fat (olive oil)
1 Tbs. sweet (honey)
2-3 cups flour (½ whole wheat {I ground myself} ½ white)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. yeast
2 Tbs. gluten
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Nonstick cooking spray
Bread mixer (you can do this my hand)
Bread pans (since I am quadrupling this, 4-1 lb. pans or 3-1.5 lb. pans)
You could use it, but if it is too old it just won't work. I store mine in the freezer so that it will keep a bit longer. thanks for commenting.
I can't wait to try this! Do you know if gluten can be used if it is old.
You you for posting this! I've been trying to learn how to make bread for a little bit now and this has been my most successful attempt at regular wheat bread to date. :D I'm eating it right now with a little fake butter and honey and it's wonderful! <br /> <br />I think I underbaked it a little (my serious problem with bread :P ) but I can't wait to try again!
Glad I can be of service. Under baking could be a problem of your oven. Next time add 5 more minutes. As a baker, you learn how your oven works and take that into consideration as you bake. Thanks for commenting.
Your Bread is my 1st view after becoming a member. Where did you get the bread pans? Thanx
When my mother-in-law died, I inherited them. They are 1.5 lb. aluminum loaf pans. I really don&acirc;€™t know where to look because I haven&acirc;€™t needed to. Maybe you should search the web. Thanks for looking and commenting.
I think it will be good for losing weight.
