Honey Whole Wheat Bread


  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings:


  • 1 1/8 cups of warm water
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt - but that's optonal)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of white flour
  • 2 teaspoons of yeast (well rounded – not level)(yeast for bread machines)


Put all ingredients into bread mixer and set on dough cycle. (in order listed)
When dough cycle is complete -
Turn dough onto floured surface and knead.
Makes 2 medium sized loaves of bread
Or 1 regular size loaf of bread and 6 buns.
Place shaped dough into greased pans, cover with loose tea cloth and put back
into the oven to rise for 60 to 75 minutes or more if needed
Remove from oven and place onto top of stove while the oven heats up (keep the
dough covered)
Oven 375 degrees. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes – Bake buns for 18 to 20 minutes
Somemes I flaen the buns down when I place them in the baking dish, so they
come out more like hamburger buns.

If you are mixing the bread yourself, and not using a bread machine, I would try
mising 1 to 2 teasponns of honey with the warm water (instead of sugar) and
sprinkling the yeast on top and see if that acvates the yeast (do not use bread
machine yeast)
I would melt the margarine and add it and the honey to the actvated yeast and
mix well, then add it to the whole wheat flour, white flour and salt. After the
dough is ready to rise, set it in a greased bowl, cover and put in the oven with the
light on to rise.

I always put my baking pans into the oven and turn the light on before I start
mixing the bread. The light is just enough to slightly warm the oven and take the
chill off the pans, which seems to work beer for the dough to be transferred into
the pans to rise.
If you have any quesons, please let me know. I don't measure that much so tend
to eyeball things (lol) The flour is usually slightly heaped about the measuring cup
for instance and the honey is also heaped well above the top of the measure cup I
use. I also run my 1/3 measure cup under hot water before measuring the honey
as it comes out easier.
