Something in the Air, or The Quest for the Perfect Homemade Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Sometimes I just need some good old homemade whole wheat bread.

It soothes a myriad of ailments, and makes my house smell good to boot.

I’ve been working on perfecting mine, as I’ve never been especially good at yeast baking. I think I may have finally gotten to where it at least rises every time. For a while there, I had these solid little lumps of doughy whole wheat. Kind of like a brick. One of those hasn’t shown up in my kitchen for a while now, though, so I think I may be out of the woods on that particular phase.

The next phase of my breadmaking career was the part where I kept making loaves that were too dry. They tasted great, and held together just swimmingly right out of the oven. Then, a few hours later, they were a crumbly mess. Too much flour, I was told.

Then, about a month ago, a lovely woman taught a class at a church activity about bread making. I had the same wheat grinder as her, and the same mixer, so I figured I couldn’t blame the bread problems on my equipment, at least. So I went. She gave me the perfect recipe, and I haven’t had a bread problem since.

So, my lovlies, if you’re a little less than savvy in the bread making department, maybe you should give this little beauty a try. It makes your house small absolutely amazing, and it tastes great too.

  1. So great that you finally found THE perfect recipe!!! That makes me happy for you! I’m scared to make bread… but I sure love to eat it. Maybe I’ll be brave… SOMEday! *:D*

  2. I’m going to give your recipe a try, but I think I may have to halve the recipe. I have made quite a bit of whole wheat bread in the past and have found that a lot depends on the wheat itself. I have had wheat that turned out wonderful bread every time, and I have had wheat that turned out little flat loaves no matter what. The best I ever had was from a health food store that carried Deaf Smith County wheat, sure wish I could find some more of the same.
