Honey Wheat Bread in the Bread Machine

Fresh bread is one of the best foods on the planet, but sometimes I don’t have the time to mix, proof, rest, proof, bake, rest again, so on and so forth. It was supposed to be my day off, and I already had to run around all over town. Today, my bread machine was a godsend. I threw my ingredients in after feeding the boys and the fuzzkid breakfast, ran my errands, went to my appointments, came home just in time for lunch, and my bread was already done and waiting for me in all of its carby glory.

Here’s my recipe for my Honey Wheat Bread Machine Bread. It might need to be tweaked a little bit depending on your bread maker.

Honey Wheat Bread in the Bread Machine: Makes a 2 Pound Loaf

4 tbsp butter, softened

1 cup milk

⅓ cup water

1-2 tsp honey

1 tsp kosher salt

3 cups all purpose flour

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

2 tsp dry active yeast

In your bread maker, place all of your ingredients into the bowl in the order listed, with the butter going in first, and the dry active yeast being placed in last, being sure to put it on top of the flour. Set your machine to it’s basic cycle, on light or medium crust (we usually do light), on the 2 pound loaf setting. Then let it rip!

Enjoy sliced and toasted with some good old fashioned butter and jam. Make a sandwich! Make some croutons! Whatever your carb-loving little heart desires. Enjoy.
