“This recipe makes 6 loaves of soft, moist whole wheat bread. I use this recipe each week, and everyone loves it! Children especially like it. You can use honey instead of sugar, but decrease the water by 1/2 cup.”
1hr 35mins
6 24-ounce loaves

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place first 5 ingredients in Bosch mixer bowl (using the dough hook), and mix well on speed 1.
  2. Add next 5 ingredients, being careful to add the yeast last. Mix on speed 1 until well-mixed. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Add dough enhancer and mix on speed one. Add 4 cups of flour 1 cup at a time, mixing as you go.
  4. Add 2 cups flour 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing on speed 1. After this, mix on speed 2.
  5. Continue to add flour until sides of bowl are clean, and the dough is not too sticky.
  6. After you have finished adding flour, continue mixing (kneading) on speed 2 for 5 - 7 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 200 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove dough from bowl onto greased surface and form into loaves (I usually get 6 24-ounce loaves, with a few ounces left over for little rolls). Place loaves in greased loaf pans (non-stick spray works best), cover with tea towels, and let rise in preheated (but turned off) oven for 30 - 45 minutes.
  8. Remove towels and bake at 325 degrees (you don't need to preheat -- just turn the oven to 325 as soon as the rising is done) for 35 minutes (I have "speed bake" on my oven and that's how long I cook them. It may take a bit longer in a conventional oven).
  9. Remove loaves from pan and cool on wire racks. Slice when cool.
