Bread Machine – Honey Whole Wheat Bread


This Honey Whole Wheat Bread recipe was submitted by Betty-Baker.

I always substitute soy or almond milk in all of my bread recipes, and the loaves disappear very quickly!  Likewise, you should be able to substitute soy or rice milk powder for the milk powder called for in many bread machine recipes.  You may even be able to safely omit it, as the milk powder is added just for flavor and texture.  It won’t effect the rising or crumbliness of the bread.  That being said, I found a few basic bread machine recipes that are naturally dairy free, such as this honey whole wheat bread.

  2. What else do I do after its put in the machine? I’m new to this looking into purchasing a cheap one from Walmart to mix my dough. How long do I cook for and what preheat? Thank you I hope I hear back this recipie sounds amazing!

    • Hi Hanna, are you asking about further bread machine instructions? They should be included with the one you decide to purchase. The machine kneads, preheats, cooks, etc.

  3. I don;t have instructions for a bread maker given to me. Is there a certain wy to put all the ingredients together?
