Ingredients

    Water, warm, 18 tablespoons
    1 pkg active yeast
    Whole Wheat Flour, 2 3/4 cups
    Salt, 1/2 tsp
    Granulated Sugar 1/3 cup
    Canola Oil, 1/4 cup
    Egg, fresh, 1 large

Directions

First place warm water, sugar and yeast in the machine. Let sit for 8 minutes or until it foams. Then place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Basic Bread cycle and if you can choose how dark or light choose light setting; press Start.

When the dough has raised once and second cycle of kneading begins, turn machine off. Reset by pressing Start once again. This gives the dough two full raising cycles before the final raising cycle prior to baking.

    The flavor, light texture and thin crust of this bread is awesome!! I accidentally overlooked the first two sentences and didn't pre-mix. I just put the water, sugar, egg, salt, and oil in the machine and then put the flour and yeast on top. I did stop the machine and start over as instructed. - 7/18/09

    I made this using my kitchenaid mixer and letting it rise normally. I did allow 3 rise sessions before baking @ 350degrees for @ 30 minutes. I also added 4 tsps of vital wheat gluten and sifted the flour first before mixing up the dough.
    It came out marvelous! My kids love it! Thanks for sharin - 11/4/09

  • What a pleasant surprise!! Light, fluffy whole wheat bread!
    I doubted the recipe (as did many people), but adding that extra cycle by turning the machine off made an amazing difference.
    Thank you so much for posting it, I make this all the time
    now. For those who don't know, 18TBL = 1 cup + 2T - 6/11/13

  • 18 Tbsp=9 oz. I added 4 tsp vital wheat gluten, used 1 tsp salt, substituted light brown sugar & coconut oil (canola is GMO) & added 2 scoops chia seeds for extra nutrition (Omega 3's & fiber). - 3/11/13

  • So good! After reading the comments below, I increased the salt to 1 teaspoon.

    Also, I'm vegan, so I substituted the egg with a flax and water mixture. The bread was moist, light, and the crust was great! Even after a few days in the fridge, it was still delicious! - 2/16/13

    quite possibly the worst bread I have ever made, it never rose and turned out like a brick - 2/10/13

  • I was skeptical with the instructions like others, but am glad to be proven wrong! This bread is wonderful! The only things I changed was to add 3 tsp of vital wheat gluten (habit, I add to all my bread machine recipes) and increased to 1 tsp of salt. Very soft, light, wheat bread. Delicious!! - 1/20/13

  • I am going to make this bread but I am wondering if there are directions for just just using the bread machine to make the dough and then using the oven to bake the bread. I don't like to bake the bread in the machine. How long to cook in the oven and what temp? Anybody try this? - 4/24/12

  • This was so light and fluffy! It is perfect!

    If you are having problems with the top collapsing - add 1/2 tsp more salt. Salt helps stabilize the yeast. - 5/25/11

  • Great tasting bread!! I have made this several times. Every time I make it, the top collapses. I have made it with an envelope of active yeast and then with bread machine yeast. I have tried it mixing the yeast as directed and then tried putting the yeast on top of the flour as my machine directs - 7/23/10
