Fantastic Bake Along – Whole Grain Bread


Hello hello!  It is Bake Along Time!   Isnt this just the best week of the month?  If you have never joined in one of our Bake Alongs , I hope you will heat up the oven, put on your apron, and join in the fun!


This month’s star baker is Kathy @Sewing Etc.  Kathy is a real from scratch type cook.  She grows her own fresh ingredients in her garden and uses eggs from her own chickens.  She is a Wonder Woman!!

Kathy would like us to make Whole Grain Bread this month.   Oh yum!  I love how the house smells as bread is cooking❤️!  


Here is the recipe:

Whole Grain Bread –  makes 1 loaf

Recipe by Kathy Reeves @Sewing Etc

Bread Machine Instructions–   Use the dough setting. Add the ingredients in this order

  • 8 oz. tepid water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons wheat bran
  • 2 Tablespoons wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons flax seed
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 ¼ cup white flour
  • 1 package or 2 ½ teaspoons yeast

Punch down the dough, roll into a rectangle, and roll up from the short end like a jelly roll, pinching the ends and edge to seal. Place, seams side down in a greased loaf pan. Cover; let rise in war, draft free place until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack.

Hand Mixing Instructions-

In a large bowl mix very warm water (105 degrees), butter, honey and salt until dissolved. Add yeast, set aside for 5 minutes to proof.
Stir in wheat bran, wheat germ, flax seed and whole wheat flour.

Stir in enough white flour to make a soft dough, then turn out and knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. You will probably use all of the white flour as you knead for 8-10 minutes. Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let rise about one hour.
Punch down the dough, roll into a rectangle, and roll up from the short end like a jelly roll, pinching the ends and edge to seal. Place, seams side down in a greased loaf pan. Cover; let rise in war, draft free place until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire rack.

**How do you know when the bread is done? Knock on the loaf, and if it sounds hollow, it is done or nearly there! 


Doesn’t that sound delicious?!   It’s going to be a Fantastic Bake Along for sure:)

Here are the links to bakers who have joined along in past Bake alongs and who have said they want to join in this week’s Bake Along:)

  1. I’m so sad I missed another one. I bake bread a lot but have never made Whole Grain Bread before. But the good news is that I will be getting a brand new oven at the end of the month!!!! 😀
