I love using my bread maker and trying a variety of bread machine recipes.

It is easy to have wonderful homemade bread at any time with the easy to use machines that are available now.

This is one of the nicest honey wheat bread machine recipes, not too sweet, but just enough to balance the whole wheat flavor. It is a great bread recipe for toast or sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • For a 1 pound loaf of bread:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup white bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons yeast

For a 1 1/2 pound loaf:

3/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white bread flour
1 tablespoon yeast

Method

Step 1

Put the ingredients into your bread maker in the order specified by the manufacturer's instructions. Set the machine for whole wheat bread and medium crust.

Step 2

Now, just press the start button and wait for your kitchen to begin to smell heavenly.

Step 3

Each recipe makes one loaf of bread.

Note:

  • Canadian all purpose flour is made of a harder wheat than American flour. For that reason Canadians can use all purpose flour instead of specific bread flour or bread machine flour in this recipe. Try it both ways and see if there is a difference for you. Sorry, but I don’t know the texture of the wheat in other locations.

Did You Know?…

If you have wanted to make homemade bread in a bread machine, but dreaded the odd shaped loaves that result, not to worry.

The new machines give you a nice regular shaped loaf, so it’s easy to make sandwiches and you aren’t struggling with huge pieces of bread.

An alternative, is to make the dough in the machine, then bake it in regular loaf pans in the oven.

All bread machines are not alike. It is important to always put the ingredients into the machine in the order called for by the manufacturer to ensure the bread bakes properly. For that reason my instructions for making the bread are short.

    Honey Wheat Bread Machine Recipe Comment

    The bread was really good, although the recipe for a 1.5 pound loaf was way to big for my machine. The dough pressed right up against the top “look through” part and I thought it was never going to stop rising, it didn’t bake fully on the end that was pressed up against the top, but I told my husband to use it for toast.

    I have a machine that you can set your loaf for 1.5 pound or 2 pound, and I’m thinking if I make the 1.5 pound recipe again , I will set my machine for “2 pound” bake setting. I’m going to try the 1 pound recipe today and set my machine for 1.5 pound bake setting. Hope it works :)
