For those of you that grind your own fresh flour, or even those who don’t but like fresh bread, here are a few whole wheat bread recipes.  I have not mastered the perfect wheat sandwich bread yet, but I’ve included the recipe for my favorite bread machine version, as well as a couple of links to others I’ve tried and liked!











Honey Whole Wheat Bread







3 cups whole wheat flour



1 ½ tsp salt



1/3 cup honey (use less if you don’t like it too sweet!)



1 ½ Tbsp butter



1/2 cup milk



5/8 cup water



1 ½ tsp active dry yeast







Put ingredients in bread machine pan according to the directions of your bread machine.  Select whole wheat setting (although I’m impatient and like the way the crust turns out better with the basic setting, so I just use that!).  Press start.  In a few hours your house will smell delicious and you’ll have a loaf of irresistible wheat bread!







If you happen to have spent grain from beer making (my husband’s favorite hobby), you can add in about a cup of the grains, as long as they’re without the hops.  It adds the most amazing flavor…and nutrition!







Here is a link to a fantastic wheat roll recipe
, also for the bread machine (but recipe works by hand as well).  A portion of the flour called for is bread flour.  We increase the proportion of wheat flour, so we’re using a smaller amount of white flour in this recipe.







And lastly, a great Whole Wheat Sourdough loaf
from one of my favorite homesteading blogs.  We’ll be discussing sourdough, including a sourdough starter tutorial and recipes, soon!







Enjoy your fresh bread this weekend!
