Made More Bread - Honey Whole Wheat

So the other day someone asked about making better bread on the Egg, and I promised to post another bread that I was planning to make ... here it is. Full details on the technique and cook posted on our blog at [url] [/url]

This is a honey whole wheat bread. I found the recipe in Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook. I didn't make it using a bread machine, but used a stand mixer instead.

Here's a picture of the finished product ... I managed to save it from the cat, who was going for the 'if I lick it, it's mine' theory. The cat knew what he was doing - this came out really tasty, with both the flavor of the whole wheat flour and the honey coming through nicely.


- 1 ½ cups warm water
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (I substituted this for the 2 tablespoons of shortning the original called for, since I didn't have any around)
- 2 ¼ cups bread flour
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons dried milk
- 1 teaspoon rapid rise dry yeast

I cooked the bread on the Egg set up for indirect cooking, with the plate setter legs down, and the little green ceramic feet that came with the Egg supporting a round stoneware baking pan set on top of the plate setter. I cooked the bread for about 25 minutes at a dome temp of 425 degrees.
