This delicious bread has ingredients that are all natural. This recipe needs no kneading. If you have an electric pressure cooker with a yogurt function, you can raise the dough in there, and speed up the process considerably.

The best thing about this recipe is that it makes several loaves and they freeze very well until you are ready to use them. This is very good, soft yet dense bread!

To make a whole wheat bread rise higher and feel lighter, add 1 tbsp. of lemon juice to the dough as you're mixing it. This will add lightness, but will not influence the taste. By joesgirl

I have been searching for 100% whole wheat sourdough bread recipes but haven't found any. Does any one have one - preferably for a bread machine?

I've begun tweaking my recipes to accomodate a husband who has decided he only wants 100% whole wheat bread and find I can use the ww alone if I add vital gluten and dough enhancer to the mix. I haven't done sourdough yet (because I don't like it and I should get SOMETHING my way!) but feel sure you could do it the same way. I would just use a regular sourdough recipe and add those 2 things.


I use a bread machine but for 100% ww recipes I take them out of the machine and let rise in the oven because it takes longer for 100% ww to rise than the machine allows. Almost nobody makes 100% ww anything but I make all the bread we eat that way: sandwich, breakfast bread, dinner rolls, pizza crust, and hamburger buns.

This makes two delicious loaves. Hearty and flavorful, it has a nice crunchy crust when fresh from the oven. Brush it with a little melted butter while it's still hot if you want a soft crust.
