100% Whole Wheat Bread

100% Whole Wheat Bread


  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cups warm water
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 - 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour


  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over water and let stand 5 to 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Stir to mix, then add oil, honey, salt and egg.
  3. Add 3 cups of flour and mix* until blended. Add enough of the remaining flour until dough forms a smooth ball that is slightly sticky to the touch.
  4. Place dough in large, greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
  5. Punch dough down and shape into loaf. Place loaf into a 9x5-inch greased loaf pans and let rise until double in size, about an hour.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.

*Use mixer equipped with dough hooks.

Serves: 12

Success Tip: Warm water for dissolving dry yeast should be between 105°F and 115°F. If a thermometer isn't available, run hot water over your wrist. It should feel very warm, but not uncomfortably hot.
