2 tablespoons light brown sugar or 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • —-ForBread Machine—-.
  • Add all ingredients except cornmeal to bread machine pan in the order recommended by your machine’s manufacturer.
  • Select dough cycle and start machine.
  • —-ConventionalMethod—-.
  • In large bowl, dissolve yeast, brown sugar, and ginger in warm water.
  • Let stand 5 minutes until yeast foams.
  • Add salt and bread flour; beat well.
  • Stir in whole wheat flour to make a stiff dough.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured board and knead 10 minutes or until dough is springy, smooth and satiny.
  • Wash bowl, grease it, and add dough to bowl; turn over to grease top.
  • Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • —-Shapingand Baking—-.
  • Lightly oil or grease a 14×17″ baking sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside.
  • Punch down the dough.
  • Divide in half and, on a lightly floured surface, shape into long loaves, rolling each piece first into a 5×12″ rectangle, then rolling each up along the long side to make a long, narrow loaf.
  • Pinch edges to seal, and taper ends.
  • Place loaves, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet.
  • Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Make 4-5 slashes across each loaf with sharp knife or razor blade.
  • Brush each loaf with water and sprinkle with whole wheat flour.
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes, until loaves are browned and crisp.
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • NOTE: I also use a spray bottle filled with water and spray the loaves and oven walls once or twice at 5-minute intervals at the beginning of baking.
  • You could also make this into one large oblong loaf or a round loaf, but baking time would need to be increased.

Whole Wheat Italian Bread Recipe | YepRecipes

Homemade Italian bread made with a blend of bread flour and whole wheat flour.

Provided by: EasyRecipesCooking.com

Total time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Yield: 8


1 cup warm water
1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour plus a little extra
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP olive oil, divided
1 egg white


  • Add the water to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle the yeast on top. Stir in the flours until well combined. Add the salt and 1 TBSP of the oil, continue to stir until a dough is formed and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes. Form the dough into a ball and place in a large clean bowl. Drizzle the remaining 1 TBSP of oil over the dough and flip the dough around a couple times to coat in the oil. Loosely cover the bowl and set in a warm place to double in size, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Punch down the dough, lay the dough on a baking sheet and form into an oval loaf shape roughly 12x4x1-inches. Sprinkle the top of the dough all over with some flour (about 1 tsp of flour, this keeps the dough from drying out while it rises again). Let the dough rise uncovered for 30 more minutes.
  • Using a serrated knife cut 3 shallow diagonal slits on the top of the dough. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  • Take the bread out of the oven and brush the top with the egg white. Put the bread back in the oven and bake for 5 more minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  • Take bread out of the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool for 20 minutes. Makes roughly a 20-ounce loaf of bread.

Total time: 248 minutes

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 228 minutes

Yield: 20


1 1/3 cup Water (lukewarm – 80-90°F/26-32°C)
1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil
1 1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
2 cups Bread flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Basil
1 1/2 tsp Active dry yeast


  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in your Bread Maker manual – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Select the “Whole Wheat” bread setting. If available, choose crust colour (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer, set Light or Dark) and loaf size (1.5LB) and press the Start button.
  • It will mix and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn the bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto the rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time, use a Bread Slicer with an Electric Knife.
