Reviews for Bread Machine Wheat Bread
"Would anyone use Vital Gluten Flour in the recipe?"
"This was a delicious bread loaf. I will be making this again, thanks for sharing!!"
"Made this today and it came out perfect. I will definitely make it again. I used all whole grain bread flour instead of a combination of flours."
"This is now my favorite! But I do make one change..I use two cups of whole wheat flour and 1 cup bread flour. Next time I am going to substitute molasses for the honey....I'll post the result.. It makes a fine crumb, moist loaf"
"This recipe turned out really well. It rose well and was moist and spongy. I am allergic to dairy, so I made a few alterations. I subbed almond milk for milk and coconut oil for butter."
"Best wheat bread I have ever had from my bread machine."
"I made this two days ago, using white whole wheat flour for the whole wheat called for, and I subbed brown sugar for the honey that I discovered I was out of! The bread turned out wonderfully, and it has stayed pretty fresh stored sliced in a gallon zipper bag."
"Easy, quick and good!"
"Great recipe - easy and tasty! I made it into 12 dinner rolls and baked at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes. It turned out beautifully. Definitely will make it again."
"Sorry I accidentally misspelled some words. I just read the previous review...mine also fell...not sure what I did wrong...that's obviously why it's not big enough. (:"
"This is a great recipe however I either did something wrong which is very possible...or I need to fibd out how to make a larger loaf. I'm pretty sure if I double the recipe it would be too big but it's not he 2 lb loaf I wanted. Still tastes amazing. Thank yoy for sharing!!"
"This is the first recipe that I have tried that I liked. It is moist, and it is not overly crumby. Only issue I am having is that it is slightly falling in the middle"
"I made this recipe according to the directions, but I used the dough setting on my bread machine, and baked it in the oven. It came out perfect, slightly sweet, moist, and light."
"This is my 4th baking bread with a break maker, and this is the best recipe! I tweeked it slightly by adding 1/4 tsp of additional honey and added a few handfulls of sunflower seeds. This bread is a winner! My family loves it."
"best recipe I have ever tried. Beautiful loaf. I was ready to dump my breadmaker when I tried this recipe."
"I used 1/4 c honey and it was fantastic!"
"It never fails."
"Have made this recipe many times now, and have good results. It is soft, tasty and a hit with my family. YUM!"
"Wow - this is excellent bread! I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour because I wanted more wheat flavour. Didn't bake it in the bread machine, but did the dough cycle. Then shaped it into a greased loaf pan, let it rise for 1/2 hour, and baked it at 350 for 20-25 minutes. It is slightly sweet, dense but not heavy, just beautiful!"
"I use this recipe all of the time! Its my go-to bread because it goes with everything, is so delicious and turns out perfect EVERY time! I also gave my mom the recipe who served it at a dinner, and my aunts and uncles all wanted the recipe."
"Tried this tonight and really liked it. I wasn't sure how it would come out, because I reduced the yeast to 1 1/4 teaspoons (which is how much our bread machine normally uses - it only uses 2+ in "rapid bake" mode, which we don't normally use). Additionally, our bread machine "rests" for a half hour after starting, so I wasn't sure if the water & milk temperatures would still be acceptable. It came out fine in the end, though. It's a little light-colored, since it uses more bread flour than wheat, and my wife thinks it's a little sweet, but I think it's really good."
"added about 1/2 bread flour after 5 min of mixing"
"Received my new bread machine at 2:30 PM and by 5:00PM had made my very first loaf of bread machine bread. I used this recipe because the recipes that came with the machine all called for powdered milk. My first try was perfect. This is a delicious "goof proof" recipe."
"This is a great wheat bread recipe. Most loaves turn out dense and chewy; this loaf is light and fluffy. I have a trick that I now use every time for my bread machine...I never follow the manufacturer's suggested ingredient addition list. From now on, I will ALWAYS add the yeast to the liquid and let it foam for 10 minutes or so, then add the rest of the ingredients. It creates a light, fluffy loaf every time. This recipe is EXACTLY the type of wheat bread that we love!"
"very tasty and fluffy! Easy and would def make again!"
"Bread was fantastic, even my daughter who doesn't care for wheat bread said this was a keeper!"
"Best whole wheat bread I've had in a long time. Great texture and flavor."
"This recipe will now become our staple wheat bread recipe unless something better comes along. I have tried a couple different recipes, but there was something always off until I tried this one. The flavor, texture, and density was perfect. Next time I make it, I may try using just the dough option on the break machine and then move it over to a loaf pan and bake after rising for an additional hour to get a more traditional loaf shape and size."
"OK,this is my first attempt to make bread,Unless your a newbie like me at this kind of thing,this should be really simple.For the newbies out there you better have a owners manual to use this recipe which i found extremely helpful.with the manual as a guide,but its cooking now so in 3 1/2 hours I'll let you know how it turned out"
"I am new at baking bread with a bread machine.This is the first recipe I tried and I haven't changed. Last weekend I used it to make bread rolls for a farewell lunch we held at work yesterday. They turned out perfectly. I got so many compliments I was beaming.Thank you Taste of Home. I love your recipes & am not a member of your chat groups.PS my sister in Duncan BC now uses your recipes too & loves them.Marilyn Barter Montreal Quebec Canada"
"My husband jokes with my kids that my mothers house is the only place in Michigan where white bread is available since I've been making him eat wheat for so long. I make this bread, and he can't tell its wheat. Most times, I even substitute some of the white flour for soy flour - just for some added protein. He'll never know...This bread comes out perfect every time and is great with soups and stews. LOVE it!"
"So good! First bread machine recipe that didn't taste like just flour... just finished baking a loaf and it's half gone!"
"My whole family loves it. Very light texture and great for both sandwiches and toast:)"
"This is really amazing. I wanted to find an easy wheat bread for the bread machine. I made it one night, and I was quite impressed with the flavor. My 6-year-old daughter, who can't stand wheat bread, loves it! And my friend who refuses to eat bread machine bread, loves it! I am in the middle of my second batch. The only change I made was using the liquid organic agave sugar instead of the honey."
"I love this bread. I don't make it in the machine. I hade make it. Mix, rise, punch, rise, put in pans, rise half way then turn the oven on 375 and let finish rising and bake. Comes out moist and and soft. It last a couple of days, does not dry out over time. Love it"
"I love the taste of this wheat bread but it does not rise properly during the baking process. It should be well-rounded as pictured but instead has a cooked but sunken crust. What adjustment should I make to this recipe?"
"I have finally found a wheat bread recipe that is soft and with a great taste that everyone likes. The wheat flavor is not too over powering and it makes wonderful toast and is also good for sandwiches."
"Finally, a wheat bread that my kids will eat! This is a keeper. Thanks."
