100% Whole Wheat Bread


A couple of years ago I abandoned the need to buy bread by making my own. A friend had given me her recipe which included white flour and brown sugar. I wanted something more nutritious and what resulted was our current staple of whole wheat bread. I can not remember the last time I bought a loaf of bread. The kids LOVE to have their sandwiches for school on this bread and actually will not eat store bought bread anymore. 

Ninny's 100% Whole Wheat Bread

1 1/2 C warm water
1/4 C applesauce
1/4 C  honey
1/2 C olive oil
1 T yeast
2 T vital wheat gluten (I find this in my bulk bin section at the grocer)
5-6 C whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt

I throw all the ingredients into my bread machine and put it on dough cycle. Then take it out and form into 2 loaves and rise again. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
