Honey Wheat Bread

Honey wheat bread is perfectly thick, chewy, soft, and lightly sweetened. It tastes great on its own, or with extra butter and honey on top!
Servings: 12 slices


  • 2 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/4 cup Buzz + Bloom Honey
  • 1 1/2 TBS yeast
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 1/2 cups white flour
  • 3 TBS melted butter + more for top of bread
  • 1 TBS salt


  • In a stand mixer, or large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast, and honey in the warm water.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the whole wheat flour, white flour, butter and salt and mix until the dough pulls away from the sides (Add in more flour 1 TBS at a time if needed)
  • Knead, or allow to mix with dough hook for 8 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and oil the bowl.
  • Place dough back in the bowl and cover. Allow to rise for about 1 hour until doubled in size.
  • Punch the dough down and roll it on a lightly floured surface.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal halves, and roll into loaves.
  • Place each load in a greased bread pan.
  • Cover and allow to rise for another 45 minutes, or so, until doubled.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Coat the tops with butter, and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Allow to cool, if you can wait, and slice and serve.
