My Cup Runneth Over!

Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing... Believe it or not, this is the absolute best honey whole wheat bread ever, but the original recipe only makes a one pound loaf, which I find we whip through fairly quickly. All Recipes.com (where I found this) has a fantastic feature whereby you can recalculate online to suit the portions you require; so I doubled the recipe and ended up having to cut the top off in order to get it out of the pan! In fact, it was a bit of a challenge just getting it out of the actual breadmaker itself. The taste and texture were not affected though - it still turned out great. I plan to 1.5 it next time and I think it will be perfect. 

In case you are interested, here's a direct link the recipe in it's original form, but based on comments in the reviews section, I have tweaked it and use the following recipe instead:

  • 1 1/8 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 cups whole wheat bread flour
  • 1 cup white bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast


Add ingredients in order given. 
Use the wheat bread cycle and light color setting. 
Makes a 1 lb loaf.


  1. I thought it was a big ol' muffin when I first saw it! It looks great though and I bet it tasted awesomely good.

  2. Beautiful yummy looking bread!

  3. Hi April, I had to laugh and the worst part of this story was that I had somehow set the timer incorrectly that night and I woke up around 3:30 to the smell of baked bread... thankfully the warming cycle was still on, but of course I had to pull it out right away and then stumble back to bed!

  4. Hi Lorene, This recipe makes a great loaf of bread - I encourage you to try it out :)


Thanks for stopping by - and leaving your comments! I love reading them :)
