Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 teaspoons
active dry yeast
whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
nonfat dry milk powder
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/4 cups
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
I made this recipe without the use of a bread machine. Leaving it rise 1 hour for the first rising, and after shaping, another hour, baking it for 33 minutes at 350 degrees and it was really good. This was made in a Kitcheaid mixer with all the dry goods in first then the margerine, and the water last. I left the machine run until it was entirely pulled together, about 6 minutes. This was a real easy recipe taking no time at all, and oh so worth the time. Yum. Thanks.
It may be the baker here :), but this turned out really dense. I was going to use it for sandwiches, but it was not the right texture. May try again...
This recipe looks fantastic.....I'm making it right now - but I'm going to also add 1/4 C GLUTEN for a better rise and fluffier bread. You can find gluten at any health store and some grocery stores in the baking isle where flour is. When you bake bread w/ 100% WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, you're missing out on the gluten which is found in white flour....so it's best to add it for a nice fluffy high risen bread! Thanks for the recipe....also....*if I had honey* (which I'm out of!) I would omit sugar and replace w/ honey instead (same amts). -Sharon
The first time I made this in my bread machine, it came out small and very dense. I tried it again using the whole wheat dough cycle. I kneeded it some when it came out and put it in a bread pan, let it rise till double in size. Forgot about it and it rose a LOT above the pan. Still came out very good, but way too tall to fit in the toaster!!! All my family loved it. I did add the 1/4 cup gluten flour also. I am going to try to make hamburger buns next. If you are going to eat bread, it must be 100% whole wheat or from what the nutritionists say, you are eating a slice of sugar. Thanks for the recipe.
6/11/07 I have been making this bread almost every day now. When I have all the ingred. out, I make bread baggies with all the dry ingredients in each baggies except for the flour. Now I only have to put the water in the bread machine, add the 3 cups flour, pour in my baggie of dry ingred., add butter, pop in the bread machine, set for ww dough and in two hours I can plop it in a bread pan, let it rise for about 45 min and bake at 350 for about 25--30 minutes. This is the only bread my 1-1/2 year old grandaughter wants to eat :) Gotta go make bread, thanks...
p.s. If you want to use honey, just don't add the sugar to the bread baggies and add it when you add butter:)
I tried this recipe (my first yeast bread - I used instant dry yeast) and it came out perfect and I didn't even use a bread machine. Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and kneaded. Allowed it to rise an hour, kneaded again, let it rise in a greased pan another hour, baked for 50 minutes and had the most glorious bread ever. It was soft and heavenly. Slicing it was a "moment". I don't know what took me so long to bake bread. The recipe was perfect, especially for a beginner like me.
Holy cow! This is everything that whole wheat bread should be! My only change was to use butter instead of margarine, and I added 1/4 C vital wheat gluten, per other reviewers. It is SO light and fluffy. Delicious!
I cheated the first time I made this, and used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, and 1 cup of unbleached white. It was so delicious, I have not tried it any other way, nor have I made any other kind of bread in my machine. It's moist, light, and slices great for toast and sandwiches. My 3 year old loves it. You have to try this one!!!
I usually do wheat bread with only 1/3 whole wheat flour, because I don't like whole wheat bread that much, but this bread was excellent. It isn't too dense, and it is quite moist. I make bread a few times a week, and my husband said this is the best I have ever made. I made it by hand: proofed the yeast, let rise 1 1/4 hours, then formed into loaves and let rise about 45 minutes. Baked on 350 for 30 minutes.
