- The trick to making 100% whole wheat bread in your machine is an extra knead, which gives the yeast and gluten a second chance to create a lighter loaf.
- When your first knead cycle is completed, simply reset the machine and start again.
- Some manufacturers produce home bakeries with a whole wheat cycle; if your machine doesn't have one, this start- again method works as an easy alternative.
- Success hints: the gluten gives the whole wheat flour the structure necessary for a good loaf.
- If your market doesn't stock wheat gluten, try your local health food store.
- Remember the extra knead. It's especially important in 100% whole wheat bread. Because of the extra knead, use this recipe only on the regular bake cycle.
