This dough I use to make buns or bread in oven with. This recipe will makes 2 large loaves or 2 dozen buns. This recipe is for the 2 pound bread machine. It is important to reduce the amounts by portion if your machine is smaller.
Turn bread machine on to dough cycle. Usually it is 90 minutes long for dough. OH, the important thing. This recipe is for the 2 pound bread machine. Important to reduce the amounts by portion if your machine is smaller.
Bake at 350 degrees F. The buns for approximately 15 minutes, each oven does it differently, depending on your pans too. The clue I use to determine when my baking is done is the smell of the flavor buds bursting. This is what I use for cookies, breads, pies, etc. I very seldom use the timer unless distracted.
Source: I have a couple bread machines to help me (disability) kneed my breads better, I roll out the dough and proceed to bake like regular bread baking.

Making fresh, delicious whole grain bread at home can be easily done with the use of a bread machine. This recipe contains lots of healthy ingredients to this like flax seeds, whole oats, raw sugar, extra virgin olive oil. Plus it's considerably cheaper than a "high quality" wheat bread from the store shelves.
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.

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?
By plm5087 from California
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.
Here are a couple... but not bread machine specific:
I have been making this recipe for a long time. I use the whole wheat dough setting on my machine. If you don't have a ww dough setting just use the regular.Sourdough Wheat Bread
3/4 cup warm milk
2T oil (I use olive oil)
2T sugar or honey
1 T salt
3 cups ww flour
1/4 cup gluten
2 tsp dry yeast
Put in bread machine in the proper order for your machine. When the dough cycle is done take the dough out punch down and put in bread pan. Let rise. Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Add this to yeast/flour mixture. Add another 4 cups flour (2 cups unbleached, 2 cups whole wheat). Mix until smooth. Turn out dough on floured surface. Knead smooth and place in warm place, covered, in oiled bowl. Let sit for 1-1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Knead 2-3 times and cut in half. Shape each pieces in ball; let rest 10 minutes. Roll out rectangle and shape 2 loaves. Grease pans. Let rise 1 hour in warm place. Bake at 375 degrees F until golden brown, about 40-50 minutes.

This is my favorite wheat bread recipe, it's from Prepared Pantry
By Christi from Paducah, KY
Christi, thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I can't wait to try it! I do have a question for you though, 'cause I'm just a bit confused about something . . . you say to put the insta-read thermometer through the bottom crust . . . does that mean that you remove the bread from the pan to read the temp, then return it to the pan if it needs to bake a bit longer? Thanks, Jill (04/03/2007)
