Dough made in bread machine, baked in oven


My husband all the time says that bread machine is not meant to bake. To have a better crust and result in general, I should give it a try baking bread in oven.

So, for my third attempt for whole wheat bread I have made some research and found this useful step by step blog entry:

For the recipe I have used:


  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 packet of yeast
  • ¼ cup honey

We have bought this all natural honey in one of the framers markets in San Diego.


  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ¼ cups whole-wheat flour

The recipe was taken from: As always I have adjust a bit for my preference.

The baking process:

  • Make the dough with bread machine
  • Place bread dough on the baking paper (put some olive oil that the bread would not stick while baking) and form a loaf
  • Leave bread loaf for 1 hour in warm environment (around 100F) to raise.
  • Bake bread for 35min in 350F and once done let it cool down for 30min or more.

My comments for this method would be:

  • The baking form that I used was too big, thus the bread loaf came out in a bit funny shape
  • The bread is a bit too sweet for my flavor (next time I would use less honey)
  • The bread bakes better in the oven than bread maker

Overall the bread is very fluffy and eats very nicely!
