This bread is great with butter and/or jam. I sometimes use sunflower oil in place of vegetable oil.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk water, milk, brown sugar, honey, and 1/4 cup vegetable oil together in a bowl. Add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt; stir until dough holds together. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.

  • Pour 1 tablespoon vegetable oil into a bowl. Place dough into the bowl and turn to evenly coat with oil. Allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Punch dough and knead 4 to 5 times. Divide dough in half and form each half into a loaf. Place loaves into 9x5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise until dough is about 1 inch above the pan, about 30 minutes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly before slicing.

Hubs really enjoyed this and since he's not a fan of wheat bread this means this definitely is saved in the recipe box. I thought it had a nice light wheat bread flavor but it did need more flour. I ended up using about 7 cups total of flour (3 wheat 4 AP) and had to add back in about 1/2 c of water so I would try next time with 6 1/2 c of flour. The flour to water ratio is off; if you tried as written you'd end up with a soupy bread. Reading the recipe though reminds me when my mother gave me her pizza dough recipe. She was a bit more off though telling me to add flour as needed without even giving me measurements. On the bright side those are recipes for people who like to keep adding flour until they get the right consistency. Inexperienced bread makers might like a little more guidance but that's why they have reviews on here.;) Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I changed it up a little. I used 1 3/4 cup more of each flour. And I think it could've used a little bit more salt. But besides that it was good. Read More

Hey Everyone! I love this recipe but I would love your opinion! Let me know how you like it!:D Kooldog: when I make this recipe i usually make the dough pretty loose and then knead more flour into it. Probably should have added that into the instructions. But if you make a bed of flour pour the dough on top and then put more flour on top of the dough and knead adding more as needed it works better. Thanks! Read More

Tastes great but as others have said needs far more flour. I had to use gluten free for the all purpose and xhantham gum due to an allergy. Worked very well. Tastes amazing with honey butter. A keeper Read More

I must have done something wrong because after all the ingredients were mixed together the dough was like batter not dough. I added another 1-1 1/2 cup flour to stiffen the dough. Any suggestions? Read More

Well I gave it a try with changes reading the reviews it seems wet to dry was off a bit. So I used 4 cups wheat flour and a bit less than 2 cup A/P flour. I added 3 tbsp vital wheat gluten to the wheat flour. My wheat flour is old but does not smell rancid (my built in excuse). I used a stand mixer and seemed a little dry so I added a bit more water.. I opted for 3 loaves since I had upped the amounts I sprayed pam and floured the pans (1 metal 2 glass). Seemed like a good rise after an hour did not rise at all while baking went about 28 minutes.. came out like bricks taste is good but not the lighter texture I was hoping for my search continues Read More

This bread is good after the following changes. At first I followed the recipe to the T. There was definitely way too much liquid verses flour because it was like a batter and not able to be kneaded. I had to add about 1.5 cups more of flour. Then kneaded for 10 minutes. It rose well and in the end the bread is quite airy and good. I was afraid it would be dense like other recipes I've tried but its pretty good! Read More
