Made a loaf of this wheat bread tonight. Came out great and will have to make at least 2 loaves tomorrow. This is going to be my new sandwich bread. Love it, thanks again! ~ Karl
We don’t have wheat bread very often at our house. (The Man of the House is not a fan.) However, I enjoy a nice hearty bread. So once in a while I go wild and make a loaf anyway. This bread is indeed hearty and has a nice flavor.
What Bread Setting to Use?
My Zo has settings for both basic (white) and wheat bread. This recipe has both wheat and white flour. You can use either setting for this recipe.
Making Wheat Bread in the Bread Machine
This makes a two-pound loaf of bread. You can use either the basic or wheat setting with medium crust.
Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the machine first. In my machine, I add the liquids first.
I advising checking on the dough after five or ten minutes of kneading. Open the top of the bread machine to see how the dough is doing. It should be a smooth, round ball.
It always helps to have an example. So here’s how spelt bread looks after being kneaded for awhile.
If your wheat bread dough doesn’t look right, not too worry!
If the dough is too dry add liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right. If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
