  • Nonstick loaf pan(s)
  • Large bowl
  • Whisk


  • 1 cup water warm (110-115ºF / 43-46ºC)
  • 1 oz milk
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • .5 tsp salt
  • .5 tbsp vegetable oil


Mix Dough

  • In a large bowl, whisk water, milk, brown sugar, honey, and vegetable oil together.
  • Add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt. Stir until dough holds together and doesn't stick to the spoon, adding more whole wheat flour if needed (as much as 1 cup).
  • Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until it's smooth and doesn't stick to your hands.
  • Drizzle vegetable oil into a bowl and coat the bottom and sides. (You can clean and reuse the bowl you mixed the dough in.)
  • Place dough into the bowl and turn to evenly coat with oil.

Allow Dough to Rise

  • Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise until doubled in size. This can take 1-2 hours.

Knead Dough and Prepare to Bake

  • When dough has doubled in size, turn the dough out and punch it down and then knead it 4-5 times until smooth.
  • Divide dough, if needed.
  • Form each portion into a loaf and place into a 9×5-inch nonstick loaf pan.

Allow Dough to Rise Again

  • Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise until it is 1-inch above the edge of the loaf pan. This can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours.


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Cool slightly before turning out and slicing. (But it can still be warm to the touch.)


Note that 2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup (for milk, brown sugar, honey, and vegetable oil). So if you double the recipe these ingredients should be 1/4 cup each.
