Recipe | Whole Wheat Bread


6 cups Hot Water
12 cups milled Honeyville Hard White Wheat
2/3 cup Lucero Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2/3 cup Agave Nectar
2 Tbsp Salt
3 Tbsp Honeyville Dough Conditioner
2 cups Honeyville 9 Grain Cereal Mix
3 Tbsp Saf Instant Yeast
6 cups Honeyville Alta Artisan Flour
  1. Put 6 cups of hot water to your mixing bowl.
  2. Add 12 cups of the freshly ground hard white wheat flour.
  3. Pour in a good quality oil, in this case 2/3 cup of olive oil.
  4. Next comes the 2/3 cup Agave Nectar. This is high in inulin which help it to retain moisture and lifts it up.
  5. Add the 2 tbs of salt.
  6. Spoon in the dough conditioner/enhancer. What this does is gives you that bakery quality texture and it also extends the shelf life.
  7. Pour in the cereal mix.
  8. Sprinkle the yeast on the top. The reason for this is if the water is too hot, it won't kill your yeast.
  9. Turn on your mixer and gradually add the Artisan flour. After the sides are clean, set a timer and mix for 6 minutes.
  10. Coat your counter-top with olive oil and transfer the dough to the oiled surface.
  11. You will weigh your bread dough into 2 lb sections. This will give you 5 loaves.
  12. Place the dough into lightly greased bread pans.
  13. Cover and allow to rise until it is double in size. (about 20-25 minutes)
  14. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  15. Place bread in oven and then reduce the temperature down to 335 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  16. Remove from pan. Slice and serve.
