Much quicker than the usual recipes, these loaves of whole wheat bread can be ready to eat in a little over an hour. Easy, quick and delicious.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, instant yeast, and salt together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Whisk water and oil together in a cup; pour into flour mixture. Mix on low speed until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl into a ball.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead just until dough is smooth, about 1 minute. Divide and shape dough into 3 balls for small loaves or 2 balls for larger loaves. Dust loaves with flour and place onto a baking sheet; cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Slash an "X" about 1/4-inch deep in tops of loaves with a sharp knife.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven to cool completely on a wire rack.

Cook's Note:

For extra depth, substitute 1/2 cup whole wheat for 1/2 cup quick oats. The number of servings is dependent upon the thickness of the slices. I recommend making 3 loaves the first time.

Reading the reviews about having to add more flour and how wet the mixture was I pulled out my scale to work with the recipe knowing we all measure flour differently. Following the recipe, I reduced the water to 3 cups and (weighing the flours) put in 339 grams whole wheat flour (113 per cup) and 4 cups, 480 grams all flour (120 per cup). Read More

The recipe calls for far too much water. Added extra flour but the bread still didn't turn out well. I've had much better luck with other recipes. Read More

Great texture and taste. It could be user error but I did have to add 1 1/4 cups more flour to make it come together and leave the sides of the pan, user error maybe? I made two changes, I added 1 tbs of Vital Wheat Gluten and I halved the recipe. Thanks for sharing!! Read More

I ended up having to add more flour. It tasted a little bland, so I will be adding either honey or molasses next time. Read More

We loved the result, but had to add an additional cup of whole wheat flour to keep it from being too moist to knead well. We're on our fourth batch now. It is especially delicious when the slices are toasted. Read More

Loved it. It took an hour to rise, and I added honey, flaxseed, oats, and a bit more flour than suggested by the recipe because it does, indeed, get gooey otherwise, like other reviewers suggested. Also, I used my hands instead of a mixer, and it was fine. Read More
