Buttermilk Wheat Bread (Bread Maker)

1.5 lb loaf of Buttermilk Wheat Bread (or medium loaf depending on your bread maker)

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup Lowfat Buttermilk
  • 1 ¼ T butter melted
  • ¾ t salt
  • 1 ¼ T Honey
  • 1 ¼ T molasses
  • 1 ¼ c white flour
  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ¼ T sugar
  • 2 t vital wheat gluten
  • 2 tsp yeast

Place all ingredients in your bread machine according to the machine’s instructions

For most machines all wet ingredients go on the bottom + the salt (to keep it as far away from the yeast as possible) dry ingredients on top and then make a little divot and pour the yeast into it.

Set machine for whole wheat loaf

My machine beeps about 20 minutes in so that I check the dough and make sure it has mixed correctly and to give you an opportunity to scrape down the sides if needed. It should be in a ball but sticky to the touch.

Too dry? Add a bit more buttermilk 1 T at a time. Too wet? Add flour 1 T at a time until you get the sticky ball!

Now the hard part… waiting for it to be all done!
