Always start out with a larger pot than what you think you need (or knead)

Bread Making 101. More like only successful recipe yet. This is a whole wheat yeast bread recipe that has actually risen correctly and baked correctly! So here it is...



Step numero uno, dos, tres, etc.!

Mix yeast in hot water and mix with fork

In a large bowl combine brown sugar or honey (whichever you choose), salt, oil, and yeast water mixture.
Add 3 cups of the whole wheat flour and mix well, then add remainder of the whole wheat flour.
Thouroughly mix in the 3 cups of white flour

Cooking and muscle building?

That's right! Knead the dough for 10 minutes. While kneading, you can add up to 1 cup of flour (I use white)  to keep from sticking.

Let rise for 1 1/2 hours. It should be doubled in size

More muscle building...

Punch down the risen dough, then let rise again for another 45mins.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 10 minutes.
And there you have it. Warm, fresh bread.

This recipe has worked great for me! I have made it with honey and brown sugar, and both were good! 

If you have any questions or it doesn't exactly work for you, email or post a comment and I'll help you out the best I can through words:)

Thank you Mrs. Tammy for the great recipe!
