My mom makes the best whole wheat bread! Because whole wheat bread is SOOO good for you, I’ve been trying to make it more! (It’s also delicious.) Here is the easy recipe.
Whole Wheat Bread
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. brown sugar (note: I now use sucanat)
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. yeast
2 Tbsp. gluten
1 Tbsp. dough enhancer
3 1/2 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour
Combine all ingredients. Let rise in bowl in a warm place for 45 minutes. After that, punch dough down and shape into a loaf. Place in a greased bread pan and split the top with a floured knife. Spray with cooking spray, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge. Let rise in the fridge for 2 hours (or overnight is fine too, if you want to bake in the morning). Place pan on top of the stove while the oven preheats. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then promptly remove and allow to cool on a wire rack. When cool, slice and enjoy!
