Daily Bread - Bread Machine

Over the years, I've tried lots of different recipes in the bread maker in search of THAT loaf of bread that we make every week.  A few months ago, I came across a recipe on the King Arthur Flour website, and it has been our go-to ever since.  It's great for a sandwich, all by itself, toasted, or for grilled cheese/paninis.  I also use any leftovers after a few days to make breadcrumbs that I keep in the freezer. 

100% Whole Wheat Bread - Bread Machine
adapted from King Arthur Flour 
(based on measurements for 2 lb loaf listed in comments - 1/15/12)


1 2/3 cup warm water 
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil or melted butter
4 cups wheat flour (I usually mix whole wheat and white whole wheat)
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp vital wheat gluten
2 tsp salt
2 tsp instant yeast


Place ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed, or as required by your bread machine (mine uses wet ingredients first).  Program as needed for your machine.  (The original recipe says to use the white bread cycle, but I use the wheat bread cycle.)
