Whole Wheat Honey Homemade Bread

Something a little different today, Whole Wheat Honey Homemade Bread tutorial.  My family LOVES this bread, so glad that this batch makes two loaves because one loaf is gone for dinner and the other loaf for breakfast in the morning.
There is alot of steps to this, but that's how it is when you make bread, but once bread is done and ready to sample, you wont even care that it took you a little over 2 hours to make this bread!
Here we go:

2 1/3 cups warm water
1/4 cup honey
4 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
2 1/2 tsp salt
4 3/4 cups whole wheat flour

Combine 2 cups of flour, yeast and salt in the bowl of a mixer.

Dry Bread Ingredients

Add warm water, honey, and melted butter. Mix on low speed until ingredients are combined, then beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes.

Mix in 2 more cups flour and add a little bit more to make a kneadable dough, it will still be soft.


Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth.  You can also let your mixer knead the dough if you want, but I am old school and this is how my grandmother did it.

Put dough back into the mixing bowl, cover with a wet towel, let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.

Dough is rising

Punch down the dough , and divide it in half, and roll each half out into a rectangular shape, and place into a greased 9x5 inch bread pan.

Dough in loaf pans

Cover the loafs with a wet towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes, or until doubled.

Dough waiting to rise again

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.  Turn out onto a wire rack to cool before slicing.



  1. That looks soooo good! I have never had much success with breads. I think it is the yeast. It's hard to get the temperature right, and factor in the humidity, etc. Sure would love to give this a try, though!

  2. I stink so bad at making bread, but I'm going to give this one a try since it's one of my favorites :)

  3. Pamela - love the step by step photos. Great blog once again :)
