Category: Bread Recipes


For 1 Batch(es)


1 2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or canola oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon salt
4 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

2 lb Low-sal Whole Wheat Bread Directions

  1. Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan
  2. Measure and add dry ingredients (except yeast) to the bread pan
  3. Use your fingers to form a well (hole) in the flour where you will pour the yeast. Yeast must never come into contact with a liquid when you are adding ingredients. Measure the yeast and carefully pour it into the well.
  4. Snap the baking pan into the breadmaker and close the lid
  5. Choose the "whole wheat" setting on your bread machine. Choose your desired crust color, if you have that option.
  6. Press the start button and wait for it to finish (usually about 4 hours)

Recipe notes

We buy a 50 pound bag of whole wheat flour for around $20 - so it's definitely worth buying it in bulk and makes this go-to loaf quite affordable.

Bread machines vary in size. This is a recipe for a 2 pound loaf size, so adjust as needed.

We've used this in 3 different 2 pound bread makers with good success.

The yeast may need adjusting. The original recipe calls for 3 teaspoons, but it ended up being too much so we adjusted down to 2 teaspoons.

If you really like baking your own bread, I highly suggest getting the active dry yeast in bulk. I came across this in my rural town grocery store and had never seen anything so big! It is 1lb of yeast and usually sells for less than $20.  We always bought the little brown jars (priced between $5-10), but had no idea we could go bigger!
