Homemade Whole Wheat Bread

My husband has been asking me for a long time to make homemade Whole Wheat Bread. I have tried a few times in the past, but never had any luck in doing so. Well, today I am happy to say my bread turned out so good! Even my boys wanted a slice of bread toasted w/ butter for a snack this afternoon. Not only is this bread alot healthier for our family, it will save us money towards our weekly budget of not buying anymore bread. Thank you Julie (my sister-in-law) for your AWESOME recipe!


5 cups hot water
7 cups whole wheat flour

mix together & add:
2 TBSP salt
2/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey
1 more cup of flour

mix together & add:
2 TBSP Yeast

Add 4-5 more cups of flour. Mix with wooden spoon until you can't stir anymore, then knead with hands. Spray 3 bread pans with a non-stick spray. Separate dough into 3 portions and put them in the bread pans. Cover with a towel & let it rise until 1/3 in Bulk. Bake 35-40 minutes at 350. Enjoy!


  1. I will have to try this recipe, I have been meaning to make some bread too.

  2. Do you add the yeast to the hot water and let it sit for a few minutes first and then add the ingredients?
