Thanks go out to CFO reader Colleen, who was kind enough to send me this recipe!
Colleen’s Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine
Makes one 2-pound loaf
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups bread flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons butter or oil (Colleen recommends olive oil)
1/4 cup honey
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup water
Place the ingredients in your bread machine in the order directed by the manufacturer. If your machine has the options, remember to use the whole wheat and 2-pound loaf settings.
Note from Colleen: If you or your family is used to whole wheat bread from the grocery store, you may want to use 2 1/2 cups of bread flour and 1 1/2 cups of wheat flour. Then with consecutive loaves, increase the whole wheat flour and drop the bread flour by 1/4 cup increments. Be sure to store your whole wheat flour in the freezer so it doesn’t get a sour taste.
