100% Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 1/2 cups Wheat bread flour
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons Dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Gluten
  • 2 teaspoons Molasses
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Fast-Rise yeast or 2 teaspoons Active-Dry yeast

Directions

  1. The trick to making 100% whole wheat bread in your machine is an extra knead, which gives the yeast and gluten a second chance to create a lighter loaf.
  2. When your first knead cycle is completed, simply reset the machine and start again. Some manufacturers produce home bakeries with a whole wheat cycle; if your machine doesn’t have one, this start- again method works as an easy alternative.
SUCCESS HINTS:
  1. The gluten gives the whole wheat flour the structure necessary for a good loaf.
  2. If your market doesn’t stock wheat gluten, try your local health food store.
  3. Remember the extra knead. It’s especially important in 100% whole wheat bread.
  4. Because of the extra knead, use this recipe only on the regular bake cycle.
