Heidi’s Whole Wheat Bread

Place in bowl of Bosch: 
  • 6 ½ cups hot tap water, steaming
  • 11 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour
  • Turn on Bosch and add:
  • ¾ cup oil
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 3 T. salt
  • 3 heaping T. yeast


Add flour until dough cleans the side of the bowl about 8-10 cups.  (You want soft, but not sticky dough.)  Continue running Bosch for 6 more minutes.  Form into loaves and place into pans.  Allow to rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.   Bake at 400° for 2 minutes.  Turn oven down to 350° for 18 minutes.  (This is for small pans:  10 or 11.  Will yield 4 large loaves-Bake at 400° for 2 minutes, then 350° for about 30 minutes.)

* This recipe also calls for ¼ cup molasses and 2 eggs.  I was out of eggs one time and didn’t add them and it was just as good and won’t spoil as fast.  Also, if you are living off of your food storage, it’s probably best not to rely on too many recipes calling for eggs.  Also, this bread can be finished in a little over an hour which is a great blessing J
