Honey Whole Wheat Loaf

My husband loves wheat loaves. He loves the texture and the chewiness. It also happens that my BIL/SIL have honeybees, so every year we get a good supply of homemade honey. One of the few loaves that hubby loves so much is honey whole wheawt loaf, which I found in breadworld.com in my search for loaves with honey and wheat. Everyone in the family loves this. If I can't get my stepdaughter to eat supper, she will gobble up any rolls or loaves I put on the table that are tender and warm.

Recipe courtesy of breadworld.


Makes 1 Loaf

1-1/2 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 large egg
1 egg (beaten with 1 tablespoon of water)


In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat milk, water, honey, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly oiled surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 3 equal pieces; form each into a smooth ball. Place, side by side, in greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Brush top with beaten egg and water. Bake at 375oF for 35 to 40 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool wire rack.

  1. That is a beautiful loaf of bread!

    BTW, regarding the curry laksa, I think using any thick noodle would work if you don't have udo - perhaps linguine. I've only ever found the laksa paste at the Asian grocery but I posted a link to a from-scratch recipe to Curry Mee from Rasa Malaysia.

  2. Hi Manang,

    Do you have a recipe for wholemeal loaf using the bread machine? I would like to try it sana, para healthy.

    Thank you!

  3. Hi alice,
    Sorry I don't have such a recipe. :(

  4. hello, okay lang wala akong electric stand mixer?? if i use electric hand mixer..di kaya ma over heat siya?? or i just knead using hand lang???

    1. Hi Babes, just use your hands instead of hand mixer. I don't think the motor of hand mixers can really stand up to dough.
