100 Percent Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
I've been making 100% whole wheat for a while and have been searching for a good recipe, and I found it here. The missing ingredient for me was the wheat gluten. It makes it nice and fluffy. Other reviewers say they have left this out, I think you're missing it if you do. Yes, it needs more water! Probably could safely start w/ 2c. Also, feel free to not skimp on the flax seeds and such. From experience, I knew 1 tablespoon wasn't near enough for this size (2 loaves). I went w/ 2 heaping tablespoons of the oats, flax, sesame, and quinoa.. and it's not enough in my opinion. If you like those things in your bread, then I'd say 2 tablespoons is a starting point. I'm starting with 3T of each of those next time. I use my bread machine to mix dough. Depending on your bread machine size, you may have probs doing this size of a batch. It was overflowing on me a little.. just had to keep an eye on it. The 2T of coconut oil can be substituted with any kind of shortening. I use olive oil. Did I mention to not skip out on the wheat gluten? (I recommend a non-GMO brand and non-GMO whole wheat). This is a keeper.. I bake bread every few weeks.. This turned out great.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
pretty decent recipe. as other ratings stated, the recipe needs more flour (at least when adjusting to a smaller portion). It needed quite a bit more actually.. I made 15 servings and had to add upwards to a 1/2c more. I let them rise pretty good, but they still weren't as fluffy as I would have liked.. a little dense. All in all, I liked these, but I'm still looking for a keeper.

Wheat Bread with Flax Seed

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
The water on this recipe is way too high. Back off to around 1c of water and add if necessary. I ended up adding around 3/4c of additional flour, making this a 1.5lb loaf (thus it didn't have enough honey or flax). I did a pretty coarse grind on the flax (just enough to break the seeds up) and it was great in the bread, but there wasn't enough in the bread. If you decide to do this recipe w/ the current water amount given, add about 1/2c to 3/4c of flour, make it 6tbl of honey and 1c of flax and it'll be great. Good luck! I'll be doing this one again.
