Honey Whole Wheat Bread

My Handsome Helper

Hey Everyone!

Lately Thing Two has been super interested in cooking. He usually wants to do everything on his own, but still needs help here and there.
We made Honey Whole Wheat Bread the other day and it turned out delicious! I really liked it but neither of the kids really liked it much. I think if we had added more honey and it was more of a dessert bread then they would have liked it. 

This recipe is a little different from what we did, but I think it will make a better bread.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

3 cups warm water
2 packs of active dry yeast
1/2 cup honey
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3TB melted butter
1/2 cup honey
1TB salt
4 cups whole wheat flour
optional: additional melted butter


  1. 1. In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, and 1/2 cup of honey. 
  2. 2. Add the all purpose flour and stir to combine. Let set for 30 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  3. 3. Mix in 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 cup honey, and salt. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour. 
  4. 4. Using the left over whole wheat flour, flour a flat surface and knead until no longer sticky (This is the fun part where the kids really get to get their hands in there, a mess always equals fun!).
  5. 5.Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a dishtowel and let it rise in a warm place until doubled.
  6. 6. Punch the dough down and divide into 3 loaves. Place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and let dough rise until the dough is uniform with the pan.
  7. 7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.
    Optional: When the loaves come out, brush them with warm melted butter to prevent the tops from getting too hard.
