Prep Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours


  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp yeast
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 4 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups white flour


  1. Mix the warm water, oil, sugar, salt, and yeast together in your mixing bowl. Let your yeast get bubbly.

  2. Then add the wheat flour, powdered milk, and honey. Mix for about 3 minutes on high. This will bring up the gluten.

  3. Add white flour. Knead the dough. You can do this by hand or in your standing mixer. If you need to add more white flour you can pour a little in at a time until it isn't super sticky.

  4. Preheat the oven to 95 degrees and let the dough rise in the oven for 30 minutes.

  5. Take the dough out and punch it down. Let it rise for another 15 minutes.

  6. Spray your bread pans. Pour the dough into bread pans. I usually get two big loafs. This will make large loafs. You can make more to get smaller loafs. Let your dough double in size, about 20 minutes.

  7. Bake your bread at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Check it about half way through to see how it is going. You can adjust your baking time to get the bread you want. 

Recipe Notes

If your oven does not go as low as 95 degrees you can preheat it at the lowest and then turn the oven off to let your dough rise. You don't want to cook it now. 

You can use all white flour or less wheat flour if you choose.
