“I have been looking for a really good, soft, low sugar yeast bread that incorporates whole wheat flour, and finally I found it! Preparation time includes rising times.”
2hrs 45mins
1 loaf

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat up a small bowl (I just run hot water over it). Put the honey, brown sugar, water into bowl and sprinkle yeast in and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, mix all dry ingredients well in large bowl and then mix in butter (I did this with my hands -- it was fun!).
  3. Make a well in the center and pour yeast mixture into it, then stir well.
  4. Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead lightly for 5-7 minutes, incorporating the extra flour bit by bit. Add as little possible flour to work with it, the dough will feel semi-sticky.
  5. Knead into a ball and set in a large greased bowl and turn to grease the dough. Let rise 1 hour.
  6. Punch down dough and shape into loaf (knead lightly). Put into lightly greased loaf pan and let rise 45 minutes.
  7. Bake at 375° until internal temperature is 180°-190° (about 45 minutes). Temperature is very important when making yeast bread so make sure you use a thermometer whenever a temperature is listed, and a temperature gauge for your oven is ideal as well. My oven heats a whole 100° more than the dial says!
