A really great soft bread that we make in our bread machine. Perfect for kids, no preservatives, and can be made in the oven, too.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place warm water, butter, honey, whole wheat flour, flaxseed meal, vital wheat gluten, salt, dry milk, and yeast in a bread machine in the order listed. Run a basic wheat bread cycle, but adjust the cook timer to cut baking time down by 25 to 30 minutes. I time the bread and take it out when I see that it is not yet brown. If you like a crusty bread you may let it cook the entire time.

  • Remove loaf from the machine after the cycle is done.

Cook's Note:

Take bread out to cool. The "keep warm" function keeps your bread warm, but also continues to cook it! Set on counter. While still slightly warm, I bag my bread to keep it soft.

My family just love this bread! Made only a couple of changes. I let the yeast foam for 5-10 mins in warm water with 1 tbsp flour and a tsp of sugar. Then I pour yeast water in the bread machine pan first and then add the remaining ingredients (mixed well in a separate bowl). Then run the machine program. SK Read More
