I'm so excited!! I finally found a recipe that is perfect to replace store bought bread!!  It came out delicious and soft!  We always have whole wheat bread in the house and I've tried several different recipes and nothing was exactly what I was looking for until now!

Recipe from Allrecipes.com
(With a few changes from reviews)

1 1/8 cups warm water
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
                                                                     1 cup bread flour
                                                                     2 tablespoons melted butter
                                                                     1 1/2 teaspoons of dry yeast

I used my bread machine for this and it came out perfect!  Just put everything into your machine in the order your machine calls for and make sure to choose the whole wheat or whole grain setting.  I chose medium crust and voila!  Three hours later perfect bread!  Remember... the key is to NOT slice until it is COMPLETELY COOLED.  Even though this came out perfect... The next loaf I do I'm going to try and have my bread machine just make the dough, punch down, let rise for 30 minutes then put into a loaf pan and pop it in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  It's also been suggested if you do this to put a pan of water on the lower rack under the bread.

I found this post through Pinterest and the bread is kneading in the bread machine as I type! But I was curious, why would you bake it in the oven next time?

Hi Jennifer!! Thanks for reading!! Honestly the only reason why I choose to put in the oven is because it comes out so well that I would prefer the slices to be prettier and in that loaf shape form that it would come in if I put the dough in a bread pan and then in the oven as opposed to the bread maker... you know the cute little "muffin top"... I love the ease of the bread maker but I just don't like the large square slices that I'm forced to cut due to the shape of the bread makers pan. Now I HAVE seen those bread makers that have the horizontal loaf pans just like you'd put in an oven as opposed to the vertical ones... That MIGHT go on my wishlist! Hope you enjoy!! And so cool that you found this on Pinterest! <3

When I made this, I chose 1.5 pound loaf and I'm wondering what would have happened if I had chosen a 2 pound loaf. I don't know if it's me or my bread maker but my bread always comes out just ok. The taste is great but it seems dense and too crusty for me. Help.

Hi Jessica! Thanks for reading!! I have found the same problem with most recipes I've used. I'm certainly no expert on the subject but I found my bread comes out much better if I use the bread machine just for the dough prep then put the dough in my regular oven to bake. Maybe you could try that!! :D

Are you sure you mean 1 Tablespoon of salt??? That seems like a lot?!

Hi Breanna! Good catch!! Yes that SHOULD read 1 TEASPOON! I cannot edit from my mobile app but will do so from a desktop ASAP! Thanks for letting me know and thanks for reading!!

Great! So I just made salty bread!

Ahhhh! I just put the salt in and THEN saw the comment about it not being 1 tablespoon. Sheesh. Hope it's still edible.

Clearly she never corrected it. Sigh. Deleting this pin for sure.

Bread flour is NOT the same as whole wheat flour. I have both,and I will try with the whole wheat flour....

This was a good bread although, making a small amount of rolles. Yes, I ended up making rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner. My regular recipe has been lost with nowhere to be found. It was good addition to all the other goodies we feasted on.

Another nudge to change the quantity of salt from 1T to 1t!!!
