“This is my family's favorite all-purpose bread. It's full of flavor and nutrition! I vary it by adding/substituting oats, whole flax, pumpkin seeds, or whatever else suits my fancy. This originated hundreds of loaves ago with a 60% WW recipe that I have since developed into this. Prep time does not include bread machine or second raising time. From start to finish it's about 3 1/2 hours.”
2 loaves

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Load ingredients in order listed into bread machine.
  2. Select and run "Whole Wheat Dough" setting.
  3. Remove dough, work out air bubbles, and shape into two loaf pans (I prefer glass).
  4. Let rise approximately 45 minutes (or, as they say, until doubled in size).
  5. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 35 minutes, or until loaves sound hollow when tapped on the underside.
  6. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack for at least 10 minutes before slicing (if you can keep family bread-aholics away for that long!).
  7. ENJOY one of life's simplest and healthiest delights--homemade bread!
