Honey Wheat Bread.

The easier adventure of the day….homemade whole wheat bread.  Another tip of the hat to www.100daysofrealfood.com – I never really looked at the ingredients on a loaf of whole wheat bread that we bought at the store, but it’s interesting to know that a lot of them aren’t really truly even whole wheat bread (most have white processed flour in them).  I wanted to make a more “pure” version, and here it is:

Ingredients:

4 ¼ cups whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups warm water (not too hot or it will kill the yeast)
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons olive oil (or melted butter)
1 packet or 2 ¼ teaspoons yeast

Instructions:

Follow your bread machine’s directions for making a whole-wheat sandwich loaf.

Notes:

It’s really that simple.  I was careful to read the back of the wheat flour package (and ended up with King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour).  I used the oil vs. the melted butter.  Took about three minutes for me to measure everything out and press the start button on the bread machine!

Opinion:

Both of us gave this a thumbs up.  It is a very dense bread so you would definitely have to slice it thinly (or make only half a sandwich instead of using two whole slices of bread).  The flavor and consistency is great.
