Ingredients

  • 1

    cup warm water (110 degrees F)

  • 1-½

    tsps active dry yeast

  • cup honey

  • 1-½

    cups white bread flour

  • 1

    Tbsp melted butter/ oil

  • cup additional honey

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • 1-2

    cups whole wheat flour

  • 1

    Tbsp additional melted butter

Directions

In a large bowl, mix 1 cup water, yeast, and first 1/8 cup of honey. Add bread flour; stir to combine. Let set for 30 minutes, or until bubbly. Mix in remaining butter, honey, and salt; add 1 cup wheat flour. On a floured surface, knead with wheat flour until dough pulls away but is still sticky to touch. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat dough surface. Cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down dough; place in a greased loaf pan and allow to rise until dough has topped the pan by one inch (about one hour). Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes; do not over bake! Lightly brush surface with melted butter to prevent crust from getting hard. For a darker bread, use a honey/molasses mix.
