whole wheat flour

Wow. That bread is fantastic! I'm going to make this recipe a staple around our house. I used 1/2 cup of honey, and it was a very subtle flavor, I also increased the salt by 1/2 tsp and exchanged one cup of white flour for another of wheat. I had to allow for very long rising times since it's winter - they were a full inch above the pan when I put the in the oven. The result is a beautifully fluffy texture that's full of flavor. I just made this a second time, and added a 1/2 cup of quick oats. This made for a heartier texture, great for sandwich bread!
As is this bread is only all right. I doubled to amount of honey and it is terrific.
Great recipe. Every time I make it, the two loaves are gone within a day. We like it with double the amount of honey. The only suggestion is to make sure you cook it in a freshly heated oven. Don't try baking it after cooking something else in a higher temperature. Even if you reduce the temperature, the oven is still too hot and the outside of the bread cooks faster than the inside, therefore making a doughy inside. I'm fairly new at bread baking and have found this to be an easy and tasty bread.
this is a great bread - the texture is just like store bought and it's really easy to make. ***** 5 stars = "the best"
I read that some people said it took too long to rise - i use to have that problem with baking my own bread, too - but i don't anymore - all you have to do is let it rise in a warm oven - i put my at 50-degrees C. for 45 minutes for the first rise and 30 minutes for the second rise. it's turns out perfect every time. this recipe also doesn't use egg or milk - it's super tasty, too - hmmm mmm good!
The quest is over! This recipe has replaced store bought bread for my family. It has a great texture, a short ingredient list, and uses honey as a sweetener, which I can get locally. Goodbye store bread with weird chemicals packaged in plastic bags shipped to me from who knows where! :)
I have to give this recipe 5 and a half stars. This was my first time making any kind of bread. I read at least 40 reviews to get different perspectives. I followed all the directions to the tee. I made sure to have all my things together so I could move along smoothly. I used a baby thermometer to make sure my water was 110 degrees. I know this sounds absurd but I just had a baby and I have at least four new ones sitting around the house. I was really scared that the water would be too hot or not hot enough. I waited about two minutes to add the honey. I added the flour one cup at a time. It was easy to stir when I added the three cups of wheat flour. Once I got to the third cup of all purpose flour I started to worry that I was stirring it too much. So I transferred the mixture to my stand mixer with the dough hook. I added the last two cups of flour and let it knead for 10 minutes. I am glad I decided to put the dough in a gigantic plastic bowl to rise instead of leaving it in the mixing bowl because it would not have fit once it rose. I cut my oven on pre heat and cut it off after two or three minutes. Just enough to get it warm. I sutck the dough in to rise. After punching the dough down I made to loaf shapes and put them in the greased pans. I needed the oven to begin to pre heat for baking so I put them in the microwave this time. I didnt cut it on just stuck them in there. It took 30 minutes for them to rise again. To my surprise when I took them
Very good bread. It was easily halved to use in my bread machine, and it came out nice and soft. Bf liked it, which means I will probably make it again because he's not a big fan of wheat bread. I did use a 1/2 c more of wheat flour, modifying the amount of white flour in response.
Great recipe. This was my first bread and it was very easy and delicious. I doubled the honey as per the other reviews and it was very good. I'll make this again.
