Honey Wheat Sourdough Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
We've been enjoying this slightly sweet bread on a daily basis for more than 10 years. A fellow teacher shared the recipe with me when my family lived in New York. I was sure to pack up the recipe when we headed west.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling
MAKES: 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 cups Sourdough Starter
  • 3 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Canola oil

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, honey, molasses, Sourdough Starter, wheat germ, sugar, baking soda, salt, whole wheat flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Brush with oil. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

MY REVIEW

I tried it using water and it turned out great! Although I definitely used more flour than is called for and also added flax seed in addition to the wheat germ.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2009

This is an excellent recipe. Ingredients list warm water, but directions list "warm milk". I used the milk. Turns out fine. I also substituted ground flax seed for the wheat germ. Delicious!
