Bread Machine Recipes: Honey Wheat Bread

bread machine recipes

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.

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 easier to make sandwiches and you aren’t struggling with huge pieces of bread.

A great 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.

I have a recipe for a 1 pound loaf as well as a 1 1/2 pound loaf. Use whatever recipe works best in your machine.

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

  • 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.

    This is my go-to bread, and I always have a loaf at hand for my breakfast toast. Just enough honey flavor without being too sweet! (I do leave out the extra sugar and it turns out just fine.) Highly recommended!

    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 🙂
