Number of Servings: 36


    2 1/2 cups warm water
    1 1/2 tsp. dry active yeast

    3 3/4 cups whole wheat flour

    1 TBSP salt
    1/3 cup oil
    1/3 cup honey or 1/3 cup sugar
    1 1/4 TBSP lemon juice

    2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour


Mix together yeast and water and allow the yeast to proof for 5 minutes. Add 3 cup flour to yeast mixture and let rest for 10 minutes. Add salt, oil, honey or sugar, and lemon juice and mix for one minute. Add the remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing between each cup. Knead for about 6-10 minutes until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. This makes very soft dough.

If you are kneading by hand, gradually add last cup of flour to keep dough from sticking to counter. You will add more flour when kneading by hand. With wheat flour always add the least amount of flour possible to keep the bread moist. Knead for 10 minutes before shaping into loaves.

Pre-heat oven for one minute to lukewarm and then turn off. Turn dough onto oiled counter top; divide, shape into loaves and place in oiled bread pans. Let rise in warm oven for about 15-18 minutes or until dough reaches the top of the pan. Do not remove bread from oven; turn oven to 350 and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on racks.
Makes 36 thin slices. One serving = 1 slice

  • This is a great recipe but the bread takes longer than 15-18 minutes to rise in the oven, more like one hour. Other than that, it's a good recipe and we like it a lot! Thanks! - 1/9/11
