White Whole Wheat Bread

I love bread. Almost as much as chocolate. Almost. Okay not really, nothing can compete with chocolate.

Still, bread is a distant second.

Yet I also like to eat healthy {chocolate is a health food, did you know that?}. So I try to pump my family full of whole grains. White bread is a rare treat at our house. Usually reserved for company, or when I run out of the good flour.

But, like most husbands families, they are thrilled with the grainy texture and flavor of whole wheat flour. I love it, but I’m out numbered, so I had to find something that works for everyone

Enter White Whole Wheat Flour and White Whole Wheat Bread.

What makes it different that traditional whole wheat flour? I’m glad you asked. It’s sweeter, has a lighter color, has all of the nutritional of whole wheat flour with a more delicate flavor, with a texture similar to white all-purpose flour. Plus it can be found in more grocery stores.

All in all, it’s the perfect flour. And our go-to, every day bread.

You might, just might, be able to convince your family that it’s white bread. It’s worth a try at least.

White Whole Wheat Bread {Bread Machine}

Adapted from The Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook. The best book. In. The. World.

2-pound loaf

  • 1-5/8 cups water3 tablespoons nut oil or olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4-1/3 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons gluten
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon read machine yeast

Place all of the ingredients in the pan according to the order in your bread machine’s instructions. Se crust on dark and program for the Basic or Whole Wheat cycle. Press start. {This recipe can be used with the Delay Timer.}

When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan and place it on a rack. Let cool to room temperature before slicing.

Don’t have a bread machine? {Or perhaps yours has recently died and you are waiting for it’s replacement to arrive} You can easily make this bread by hand. Follow these instructions for converting a bread machine recipe to a oven recipe {scroll down to the “Can I make a bread machine recipe by hand?” question and answer}.
