Amazing Homemade Bread Recipe

This delicious homemade bread recipe will produce perfect results time after time. The best part is that it's not as hard as you think! However, the bread will need to raise for quite a while so give yourself some time. If you cut the bread's the raise time it will not turn out as well. 

Whole Wheat Homemade Bread

Homemade Bread

This recipe works great with whole wheat or white flour.


5 Loaves:
1/2 cup warm water
2 1/2 Tablespoons yeast
5 cups hot water
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
1 1/2 Tablespoons salt
14-15 cups whole-wheat flour
2 Tablespoons dough enhancer, optional (add with the flour)
6 Loaves:
2/3 cup warm water
3 Tablespoons yeast
6 cups hot water
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons salt
17-18 cups whole-wheat flour
2 1/2 Tablespoons dough enhancer, optional (add with the flour)


Stir the yeast into the warm water and set it aside for 5 minutes.
Put the hot water, oil, honey, and 8 cups of flour in a large bowl and mix until it is well blended and smooth. (If you do not have a bread mixer-- like a Bosch or Kitchen Aid-- you can use a hand mixer for this part.)

Tip: If you put the oil in first, the thin layer of oil that remains in the measuring cup will help the honey to come out more easily.

Mix in the yeast, cover the bowl, and let it sponge (just let is sit and let the yeast start working) for 30-60 minutes, stirring the dough down about every 15 minutes. (You may skip this step if you are in a hurry, but your bread will be lighter and fluffier if you let it sponge.) Add the salt, dough enhancer, and more flour, 2-3 cups at a time, mixing well with each addition. Add until the dough is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl. (If you are making the bread without a bread mixer let it raise 30 minutes and then continue.)
Turn the dough out on a floured surface and divide it into 5 or 6 loaves depending on which recipe you used.
Tip: When shaping your bread, it helps if you have a little baking oil on your hands.

Knead each loaf a minute until smooth. Place each loaf into a greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" pan and loosely cover with a cloth or with plastic wrap and let it raise until the loaf is 1/2 - 1 inch over the top of the pans. Bake at 350° F for 25 minutes.
Tip: If you use butter flavored cooking spray you can also spray the tops with it, or you can use regular cooking spray for the pan and rub vegetable oil all around the loaves.
