  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)


  • 1. In bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). Yield: 1 loaf (1-1/2 pounds, 16 slices).

"This is the only bread recipe I use now. It doesn't dry out quickly like most homemade breads. I don't have a bread machine, so I mix all of the ingredients with my stand mixer for about 5 minutes, put in warm place to rise til double, punch down, put in loaf pan to rise in warm place 15 minutes more, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in a loaf pan, remove from pan and brush with melted butter before bread cools completely. Depending on your oven, you might want to check the color of the crust after 20 minutes and tent with foil for the rest of the baking time if it has reached the shade of brown you like."

"This was great bread I made it on light setting next time I will do med,I think it should be cooked a little darker. It was a little heavy but great flavor! My picky 6year old loved it and my husband."

"I have made this several times before deciding to rate it. I use the medium crust setting on my bread machine. It is perfect every time. The bread has a beautiful texture and my family loves it. I like the simplicity of ingredients... you have everything on hand. I use olive oil instead of canola, as it is the only oil in our home. Try it!"
