Easy Honey Wheat Bread Recipe


Baking your own bread at home is a great hobby and a way to save some money on your weekly food bill. You can make bread for a fraction of the cost of what you would spend at the grocery store and you end up with a much better quality product. One type of bread that my daughter really loves is the honey wheat bread that you get at some of the chain restaurants that bring you a small loaf and a side dish of cinnamon butter. Since we don’t eat out often, here is a simple copy cat recipe we make at home.


  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 package yeast or 1 tbsp out of a jar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup warm water

Gather your supplies

Combine honey and warm water

Add yeast and let rest for 5 minutes

Combine flours in mixing bowl

Pour yeast mixture and butter into flour

Stir together with a fork

Then mix by hand and knead for 10 minutes

Cover with towel and let it rest for one hour

Cut it in half

Flatten and form two more dough balls

Let it proof for another 45 minutes

Flatten the dough ball

Fold 1/3 of it over

Fold the other side over

Pinch the seam closed and repeat

Set seam side down in pan and let it double

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or so
