Homemade Honey Wheat Bread

Honey wheat blog1200_0363

Here’s another super easy, healthy bread recipe and it’s by popular demand. My first “simple whole wheat bread” has been hugely popular but a lot of people have asked if they can eliminate the egg or add honey. YES and YES. This easy honey wheat bread has no egg and it’s made with… you guessed it:  honey. The interior is nice and soft and it tastes really good.

It takes a little longer to make than my other whole wheat bread (the one with the egg) and it doesn’t rise quite as tall so if you want it taller or faster, try my Simple Whole Wheat Bread. But if honey-wheat bread is your preference, this recipe only takes a few minutes longer. And it works with either honey or sugar, and any kind of vegetable oil you like. I mostly use extra light olive oil.

Having a warm spot to rise your dough helps it grow faster and I’m lucky to have a warming drawer in my kitchen but I have some other ideas on where you can rise dough in my blog. I hope the bread industry isn’t mad at me because so many people have said, “I don’t buy bread any more,” and that includes me. Between my no knead breads and whole wheat loaves, I always bake my own bread and I’m saving money… and spending it on spatulas! I hope you’ll try my honey wheat bread and somebody send me a picture!

      I’m sorry I don’t know. You may have to look at other recipes to see if any of them do an overnight rest.

    Made the bread today but made it in the small pans. Very Good! Thanks for sharing.

    Your bread looks wonderful, and thanks again for the thermometer tip. There are some newer ovens that now have a function for rising bread. I find it interesting, but I have not personally tried one yet. Living in Vegas, I might just opt for sitting it outside, although it’s been pretty cold lately 🙂

    Do you happen to have any nutrition information for your recipes ? or recipes geared toward diabetics ? No matter the case I am going to try the 90 min. bread for certain ! Thank you for recipes and very clear instructions.
