Mixing Things Up: Easy Honey Wheat Bread

Diana Beebe, Mermaids Don't Do Windows, MDDW, Diana Beebe's Blog, science fiction, fantasy, Young adult, travelingHi, everyone! I tell you what—getting my head back into blogging and finding my voice has been challenging. I’ve been brainstorming some topic ideas to find things that show who I am while rediscovering myself and redefining who I am since I was widowed. I’m getting there, and life is good, if not ridiculously busy.

One of the things I’ve been working on is making things—all kinds of things, including bread. I have an awesome mixer that I’ve hardly used. I found a few honey wheat bread recipes to use for school lunches.

Diana Beebe, Mermaids Don't Do Windows, MDDW, Diana Beebe's Blog, science fiction, fantasy, Young adult, travelingThe first one I tried, was… not good bread. It wasn’t bad, but I’m pretty sure that I left it alone to rise for too long. It rose and then fell. Not school lunch worthy.

The second one was simpler and only an hour to complete. Here’s the website where I found the recipe. You can use it even if you don’t have a mixer to do the kneading for you.

Because my oven runs about 50 degrees hot, I added about 15 minutes to the time for letting the dough rise and watched it closely.

My house smells so good with that fresh-baked bread smell!

The results were perfect! Yay! School lunches have been saved. 🙂

Do you bake? Do you have any mixer recipes? Please, share!

  1. I do bake bread, Diana. We’ve been baking all of our bread for about two years now. I have a KitchenAid, but I confess I have not used it for bread, even though I have a dough hook. Go figure.

    I’m baking bread from The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I tend to make loaves, instead of boules, for sandwiches and toast. But I’ve made flatbreads and pizza and boules and cinnamon rolls,etc. The Buttermilk dough and the Peasant dough are my faves.

    I think I might just try that right up there though. Looks divine. Cheers!

      Oooo, Elen, I’m going to check that out. I’m on a mission to find the right recipe now. This one didn’t quite cut it for lunches with my little one. LOL. It’s seriously good bread, but my kid is picky. I may tweak this one a bit to see what happens. I love that you make your own bread all the time!!
