  • 1 pkg dry active yeastt
  • 1 1/4 cup very warm water divided
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3- 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour


  • Combine the yeast, 1/4 C of warm water, and 1/2 tsp of the honey to a small bowl. Let the yeast proof. This means to wait until it is bubbly, to show you that the yeast is alive and kicking!
  • While the yeast is proofing, add the remaining bread ingredients (remaining water, remaining sugar, butter, salt and flour) to the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Once the yeast has proofed, pour it into the stand mixer and begin mixing slowly with the dough attachment. Once all of the flour is combined, knead for 5 minutes. The dough will be sticky, but you should be able to pull off some dough and roll it into a little ball. If it is too sticky for that, add a little extra flour.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until double in size.
  • Shape dough into a loaf by rolling the dough and tucking in the ends and place in a shortening coated bread pan. Cover with plastic wrap and rise for an additonal 30 minutes.
  • Turn on the oven to 375°. Bake at 375° for 25 - 30 mintues. Brush the top with butter during the last 5 minutes of baking if deesired. 
  • Cool for 15 mintues before slicing.
