Foods N' Recipes / Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread

I have tried a few recipes for 100% whole wheat bread and I have been dissatisfied until I came across this recipe. The bread came out fluffy and soft. It was so good that when I took it out of the oven, we would have eaten the whole loaf if we did not stop ourselves. The recipe is good enough to make two loaves since I used the medium sized loaf pan. I use the KitchenAid stand mixer for the dough.


  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 packet yeast (3 tsp)
  • * 1/8 cup or more sunflower seeds (optional)
  • * 1/8 cup flax seeds (optional)
  • * 1/8 cup or more raisins (optional)

* you can experiment the amount you like and add in others as well.

First, put the milk, honey, warm water, vegetable oil, yeast and salt into a mixing bowl.

Next, put in the flour, the sunflower and flax seeds.

Flour is in

I usually use a spatula to mix them all together or you can use the beater.

All mixed together with the spatula

Turn on the stand mixer to 2nd speed for about 7 mins to knead using the dough hook.

Dough all kneaded

Let the dough proof in a warm place til it doubles in size. Then punch down the dough. Divide into two, shape the first one and put in a greased loaf pan. Add in the raisins to the second one. Proof the dough a second time.

Going in ...

Put the dough in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 mins or so. Tap the underside of the bread for a hollow sound.

Cooling down ...

I usually freeze one since it is only two of us. When the first one finishes, I would defrost the other one and reheat it in the oven.
