All the ingredients gathered.
This recipe is for a large loaf made in a machine taking a 4 cup flour measure. (Mine is an older model Zojirushi)
Put into machine in this order (or as your machine instructs)
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/3 tbs. vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey (raw honey is especially good but regular clover is fine)
1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups whole wheat flour (see note below)
6 tbs gluten
yeast 1 packet (or 3 tsp. if you use the jar kind)
Note: you may also use whole wheat bread flour (4 cups) but leave out the gluten. Gluten, when combined with the yeast, helps to give a higher rise so is used with flours with low gluten content.
Bake on a regular white cycle according to your machine instructions. (If you have a whole grain setting, use that. I use the white cycle and it comes out perfect!)
And approximately 4 hours later:
Mmmmm -- enjoy! Nothing better than freshly baked bread!
