Homemade Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread Recipe & Instructions
Serves: 16 slices
  • 1 to 1¼ cups lukewarm water*
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3½ cups 100% Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2½ teaspoons instant yeast, or 1 packet active dry yeast dissolved in 2 tablespoons of the water in the recipe
  • ¼ cup nonfat dried milk
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • *Use the greater amount in winter or in a dry climate; the lesser amount in summer or a humid climate.
  1. ) Add ingredients as per your bread machine manual. Place on dough cycle and allow to process.
  2. ) Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface, and roll under your hands to shape into a log long enough to fit the length of your pan. Place the log in a lightly greased loaf pan, cover the pan loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 1 to 2 hours, or till the center has almost reached the top of the pan. Remove plastic wrap, grease underside of the pan lid and slide on. Allow to sit and rise another 30 - 60 minutes (to allow dough to reach lid). Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. ) Bake the bread for 15 to 20 minutes, then remove lid to the pan. Bake another 20 minutes. The finished loaf will register 190°F on an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center.
  4. ) Remove the bread from the oven, and turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool. If desired, rub the crust with a stick of butter; this will yield a soft, flavorful crust. Cool completely before slicing. Store the bread in a plastic bag at room temperature.
