non sourdough bread

Preparation Time: 3 hours
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Intensity: Moderate


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons honey or sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  1. Activate Yeast: In a small bowl, dissolve the honey or sugar in warm water. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. Mix Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, bread flour, and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the activated yeast mixture and olive oil.
  3. Knead: Stir the ingredients until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Shape: Punch down the risen dough and shape it into a loaf. Place it in a greased loaf pan, cover, and let it rise again for about 30-45 minutes.
  6. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) during the last 15 minutes of the second rise.
  7. Bake: Once the dough has risen again, bake the bread in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  8. Cool: Remove the bread from the pan and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing.

Note: You can brush the top of the loaf with a little olive oil before baking to create a shiny crust, or sprinkle some oats or seeds for added texture.
