I’d been looking for a good wheat bread recipe when Josh’s grandmother gave me this one that has quickly become a favorite. The boys love it toasted and topped with peanut butter and a drizzle of honey. I do whatever I can to fill them up because in about an hour, they’re hungry again . . .
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 pkgs active dry yeast
1 3/4 cup bread flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. salt
Mix honey and 1/2 cup water. Stir yeast and let stand until foamy. In large bowl, mix flours, salt, and yeast mixture. Slowly stir in 1 and 1/4 cups water. Flour hands and knead briefly. Grease bread pan and put in dough. Let rise about 45 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees fro 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
I’m gonna have to make this when we are off our fast. Sounds yummy.
That is very much like the bread we make, including the one relatively short rising period. We use sugar instead of honey, but I think I’ll switch to honey after reading this. The aroma really is divine, isn’t it?
