In , a semibiographical film, Hans Christian Andersen: I have to say this is the best recipe for Whole Wheat Bread that I have tried. She will have triumphs here that would never attend her progress through France or Italy". The extra added ingredients are heavy and will retard the yeast. Hi Craig, I wanted to let you know that I came across your website when I was doing a search on "whatever happened to Cock Robin restaurants. Made another loaf, but substituted buttermilk for the regular milk, as we live at 4, ft.

There were no suggestions on how to do things differently to keep me motivated enough to keep going so I always tend to lose interest.
If I try to change up even a package with something else, we are really discouraged. They could work with me on what I wanna change and they could be more encouraging than discouraging.
The meal plan is too restricted. In the beginning, more people followed but for the longer-term client, they have to start doing a little adjustment. I'm going back again today and the consultants gave me a quick call and just asked how I am.
We're happy to hear about your weight loss on Jenny Craig. Our goal at Jenny Craig is to help you meet your goals and maximize your weight loss. The structure of our Full Planned Menus and the routine of meeting with a Consultant weekly is what makes our clients successful.
We encourage you to speak with your Consultant about making changes that fall within the parameters that will help you continue to optimize your weight loss. I belonged to Jenny Craig for many years and they were good. My interactions with my personal consultant were wholesome and very nice. I started in in Monterey, California and I lost pounds.
It was good because I worked at a scuba diving shop and I was exercising every single day, but weight loss is something you have to keep up with.
In the 90s, they had more meetings. They also had all the tapes and these tapes were helpful. But this time, they don't have tapes. I wish they would've had CDs instead of the tapes, so I could listen to them better. They also had books and they had more training materials where now they don't.
I like the menus and all the menus are good. There are only a couple of things I don't care much for, but I eat it too. However, after a year, I got tired of the menu, but they do what they can to change them. They retire food and change them to new food. The quality of the meals is very good and I like the idea of not having to take the vitamins because last time, I had to take the vitamins and I lost my hair.
My weekly visits with my dedicated personal consultant were very good, although right now, I'm not doing it because I'm waiting for the fall.
But I'm going back to Jenny Craig. I just have to budget because it's kinda expensive. Nonetheless, I'd recommend them. Thank you four your feedback. We're happy to help you get restarted with our returning client specials! I've been with Jenny Craig since the 90's, but I come and go. Still, I like the company. I like my consumption with their program and their food is good. They're not acidic, so my stomach doesn't get all messed up. Furthermore, my consultant is the sweetest girl and we became really good friends.
She's trying to help me to keep on track. Also, she's always worried that I exercise and I do whatever's necessary to lose the weight. She texts me and we go to her office. There, I lose my stuff then I get weighted. She asks me about my week and how it went. Then we get a menu and leave for home. In terms of the quality of their food, most of it is nice.
Jenny Craig did a lot of changes with their food. Still, I like them much more and I have my own personal favorite. They have integrated in the last three years and they've tried it to be a little bit more modern with our food.
The program is good and when I followed the program as it should be, I was losing the weight an average of two pounds a week. The problem is that if I go off it I don't lose any. When I first started their program, I was very focused and I lost 30 pounds. But over the years, losing weight is just not my main goal right now but it is not to gain weight. So when I'm off it, I gain weight.
But if I followed the regimen I'll lose weight and I'll do great. Thank you for sharing your Jenny Craig experience with us. We love to hear about the connection you have with your Consultant.
Congrats on the weight you have lost. We're happy to continue to help you meet your goal. I was on Jenny Craig years and years ago, back in the early 80s. I have always liked the program and the food, and I knew it worked for me, so I went back to it. They got me all set up and they weighed me in, measured me, encouraged me, and gave me my food. I show up for the weekly visits with my dedicated personal consultant and we weigh in and we talk about the week, the challenges, obstacles, things I can do, and plan for the week ahead, and then I grab my food.
I like all the different menu plans and they have more options. I like all the Mexican food. I like the program quite a bit. When I first joined, I had a program where I got a discount on my food weekly, which helped out significantly. And when I started going back again, that program was no longer in existence. But recently, they started where you could pay X amount of money to get a discount and get part of your money back a year after you reach your goal. Since they brought that discount program back, they would have allowed anybody who has previously been on it to be grandfathered in.
It was a positive experience and if you work the plan, it works. I also like the personal interaction. We're happy to hear about your positive experience with Jenny Craig and how your Consultant helped and encouraged you.
We're happy to continue to help you meet your goals! I bit into a breakfast sandwich and a long black hair came out of the egg!!?? I was totally disgusted! If it could happen to one of their foods it could happen to many more. Whose head did it come from? Do they have any diseases? I contacted Jenny Craig Corp.
Their response was a pro forma apology and an offer to replace the food item. The thought of biting into any of their food makes me want to vomit! I replied that this was not a satisfactory response and they should ensure the public was aware of the possibility of finding foreign objects in their food.
I got no response. I then sent email requesting a full refund of my investment into their program since at no fault of mine I was unable to eat their food. A week later I got a special delivery from UPS. Inside was another pro forma letter stating Jenny Craig meets food quality standards. Please be aware that if you purchase food from Jenny Craig it is standard to find things in their food Very poor customer service. My serious concern was dealt with by a pro forma letter.
Food quality is extremely important to us, and we want to make sure your concerns are addressed. We have researched your account and found this is still an open investigation at this time, and we're pending a response from a request we mailed to you. We will have a Manager reach out to you to go over the next steps with you.
The simplicity of the Jenny Craig program appealed to me. I have been on and off of it for about six years. Their personal consultant has always been very good and very easy to deal with no judgments. We go in and talk about how the week went and we weigh in. Then, we talk about both for the next week and go through the menu and a way to go. They have four different menus. The quality of the meals is very good and some are better than others. Still, when I'm on the program, I've had very good results.
I recommend Jenny Craig. Thank you for recommending Jenny Craig! It's great to hear about how your Consultant has helped you stay on track and overcome challenges. I've been on every program there was and Jenny Craig was one of those left that I had not tried. I felt that it was a really affordable down payment option, since the other programs cost thousands of dollars to join. The food was delicious although some were better than the others.
The frozen food was much more endurable than the pantry items. There were some things that you microwave, like the pot roast, and I didn't find them as enjoyable.
For the frozen foods and the cinnamon rolls, the recipes improved but some other things went downhill. They changed the pizza and the blueberry pancakes and they were not as good. On the other hand, they bring out new foods periodically and that is very important for a program like that. It was a very positive thing for me as the food gets tired after being on the same thing. The kept introducing new things, like the pumpkin muffins. But with anybody who has a weight problem, it is not because they like food.
In my case, there were a lot of emotional things that trigger food interaction and it was a very real situation. So giving somebody food is not enough.
People need more time. Some are flying high and they don't need it but when you have something real going on, to put everybody in the same boat of a minute window is not realistic. When someone has a weight problem, you gotta get in when you can get in.
But overall, Jenny Craig was good and I've recommended some people to go there. The people who work there are always very polite and professional. I had the best leader over at the center and Jillian was really what kept me going back. They tried to stick me with other people and the other girls were nice but Jillian was the best.
She knew about the program and was very professional. I was back and forth the program quite a few times in a period of one year and a half and it worked for me when I worked hour days. It was very difficult to date and interact, and be on Jenny Craig. My leader was supportive of what other options I could do to substitute but it got very hard and expensive to have this type of program and also have to cook meals for somebody else.
We're happy to hear about the great experience you had with Jillian. Our Consultations in our Centers are currently 20 minutes; we agree they are very important and want to connect with you during every consultation. I've been going to Jenny Craig for about 30 years off and on. I have used other weight loss programs too. I've been to Weight Watchers but I'm one of those people that need structure and Jenny Craig is a little more structured.
I go in at a certain time, same time each day, each week and I chat a little bit with my personal consultant. If I've got some difficulties, we go over some menus. It's a little more personal with the one-on-one rather than with Weight Watchers where I'm in a group. I sometimes wish they had new products coming out a little more often though because when you have been on it for a long time, you get a little tired of some of the foods.
But for the most part, the menu plan is pretty good. During lunches, I like to have whatever sandwich, a turkey burger or a grilled chicken sandwich because I don't get a lot of bread, so it's nice to have something. Their dinners are all pretty good too. I like the home-style turkey and mashed potato dinner really well.
Also, their staff is friendly and they're pretty accommodating for the meeting times. The plan works if you follow it. My husband and I did it together, so it worked well for us. I've lost about 23 pounds and I've been happy with it. I would recommend Jenny Craig if you wanted to lose a few pounds. It's a commitment and it's expensive, so you gotta make sure you can do it. We love hearing about your Jenny Craig experience! Our goal is to keep our menus full of variety! We have new foods launching at the end of this month!
Stay tuned for those! I got into Jenny Craig for convenience. But the first rep I worked with was on her last week there so she wasn't very motivating and she really didn't give me a lot of details. But I decided to join anyway. Once she officially left I was assigned to another person. The new rep have tips and ideas. She was more detailed and gave me a little bit more coaching. She was very concerned about what might be coming up that I might find challenging.
What I also liked about Jenny Craig is that it's pre-planned. I just pull everything out in the morning and I know that's what I'm going to have for the day. There will always gonna be something you don't like foodwise but you can switch a couple of things around as long as they're equal calorie or value. But I like most of the breakfast that they have and there's a variety of things I really like.
I don't usually switch too much. The things I don't like are the ones that are not frozen, like they have a lot of preservatives so I always switch to the alternate for that. It doesn't feel like I'm eating the same thing all the time.
They all have different flavors and that's important. If you're having a cheeseburger it tastes pretty good and then if you're having pot roast, it tastes like real pot roast. It's not that bad. Everything is very limited. It's a lot of money per week because I typically get the whole menu and that is a very expensive venture. They probably would have more customers if it wasn't so expensive. Thankfully I'm able to afford that but it's just a lot of money and I don't even eat all of the dessert and I haven't gotten a lot of the snacks because I don't always need them at this point because my stomach shrunk and I'm not that hungry.
I'm losing very slow but that's me personally. Other people are losing faster and I'm sure it works for them differently but I followed a program and I'm averaging about a pound a week. Also they place a lot of calls if you don't come or you're planning on something and you go away for a week. I told them I was gonna be away for a wedding and that I would contact them when I got back but they kept calling me until I called them. But I get that it's a marketing thing and then that they have to keep track so it's not disturbing.
And I go every week and whenever I schedule I don't typically cancel but if I was one of those people that canceled all the time they would probably hassle me to death. Thank you for your feedback and sharing your Jenny Craig experience. We're happy to hear about how your Consultant has helped you with discussing upcoming challenges for the week.
We're always going to be there to help hold our clients accountable and help get them back on track when needed, this is why we call to check on our clients often. The Jenny Craig system combines nutrition and physical activity with counseling, to help clients change both their lifestyles and eating habits.
The program guarantees results. How does the Jenny Craig program work?: The goal of the Jenny Craig program is for clients to reach their desired weight levels and no longer be reliant on the program's prepackaged foods, planned menus, or consultations to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
To use Jenny Craig's system, clients pay a monthly fee to be assigned a personal consultant to help them create a personalized weight loss plan. Clients then purchase pre-packaged food items from over menu options, eating five Jenny Craig meals or snacks a day and one snack from a list of approved options. The meals can be purchased at local Jenny Craig retail centers or online.
The program offers a weekly consultant for accountability and compliance. Every week your counselor will discuss your past week's results, create an activity plan to help meet your goals, plan for upcoming events like parties or dining out, and help you choose your Jenny Craig meals for the upcoming week. Pre-packaged meals and snacks take the guesswork out of fat loss. This diet might be best for those who are not concerned about following a low-carbohydrate diet.
Some of the snacks and meals are high in carbohydrates and low in fiber, potentially triggering cravings, hunger, and weight loss resistance especially in people with blood sugar issues. Many of the snacks and meals contain ingredients some dieters avoid, including enriched flour, sugar, non-fat milk, corn syrup, soybean oil, margarine and maltodextrin. While some dieters will want to avoid Jenny Craig's foods because of this, others will find the familiar ingredients and flavors help them stick to the diet over time.
A choice of on-site or at-home consultation options allows the customer flexibility. Some people work better face-to-face with a counselor, while others prefer to chat online or via teleconference in the privacy and comfort of their own homes.

I will definitely make this again, but I will bake it for 35 minutes rather than the 30 mintes stated in the recipe. Oh, and I did not put a tent over the crust….. Thanks a lot for the recipe. It works perfectly, and the bread looks just like the picture provided. I can now start to include raisins, nuts, etc. Excited to try this by the recipe.
Hello, I just watched your video for the wheat bread. My husband and children are huge bread fans, after my husband had surgery to lose weight he had to cut back on carbs. I made this recipe and it was the first loaf of wheat bread that turned out perfectly! Will this disrupt the chemistry of this recipe? I am looking for a different bread recipe and this looks good, but I use starter instead of yeast.
Have you ever made this with starter? Or do you have a suggestion for a different recipe? Thanks for the info. So glad you made it for only one loaf. So many receipts you have to make 2 loaves. Homemade bread does not keep as well are store-bought. I keep mine wrapped in foil, never plastic, and refrigerate it after the 2nd day.
It lasts for about 5 days for me. This is the second loaf of bread I have attempted to make…ever. Light, delicious, lovely tanning on the top of the loaf after baking I tented it after 15 minutes, as mentioned , slices very well. I enjoyed the humor at the end of the video!
Kept me in good spirits as I was working this dough. Have added this to my recipe stash! Dear Jenny, My dear my husband started making your bread at Christmas time. He makes a load almost every other day and your rolls.
I am not a bread eater, and you have now made me one. It is to die for. We eat it for snack, for dessert with a drizzle of honey rubbed into butter, and then cinnamon over it.
Honestly, never had anything like it. My mom loved bread and she just recently passed away. Curious question, have you ever been able to do a nutritional value on your recipes? If any at least, Thank you so much. Is there a way to make either the white or wheat bread not so dense to be more like store bought.
I like this recipe super easy.. My husband makes this bread almost daily. He said to have an egg at room temperature-note I always see an egg in a little cup by the stove daily.
Milk needs to be not too hot and not too cold. The temperature is what she states it needs to be. I hear him putting it in the microwave. He uses a digital thermometer for The yeast-depending in which one you use, is the temp that she states. My husband uses like a Tablespoon at a time at the end of the and constantly scrap the edges.
Stops when it is sticky. I will tell you, you wont go back to store bought bread. Give it a try. Can you tell me where I may purchase that super dark bread pan used here in the recipe. This was absolutely wonderful!
I was so excited to try it, I forgot to heat the milk. I have a home economics degree and taught cooking. I know better; just in a hurry. When I realized it, I immediately made another loaf with no errors. By the time it was time to bake the bread, both loaves had risen correctly.
I baked both and we enjoyed one and I froze one for later. My husband and I both enjoyed the bread. It was indeed the easiest and quickest yeast bread I have ever made. I found your white bread recipe as well and look forward to trying it, too. The flavor of this delicious recipe is unmatched! Such a simple recipe yet amazing results.
Thank you so so much for sharing this with us! I was wakened with a kiss from my husband who said he had a most delicious breakfast of a slice of this bread which I made yesterday with butter, peanut butter and an orange. What an easy and simple way to please a husband! This was my first time to ever make bread and you made it easy. Your instructions were easy to follow and the bread came out awesome.
Well, you have a ton of comments here so this is nothing new, but I had to say thank you! I have been looking for a whole wheat bread recipe that would perform consistently and I am grateful for yours! After many failed attempts with other recipes, this one was perfect the very first time. Thank you for sharing. I also have to share my appreciation for the absence of ads on your site. This makes the site so much easier to use than other food blogs now, which have so many ads that the sitse can barely load and things keep popping up!
Your choice to skip the ad revenue is much appreciated. Your site is a great offering and I will continue to explore now that I have found you! To other readers, I used the ivory whole wheat flour for the 2 Cups and regular bread flour for the rest and it was great. This is the best wheat bread I have ever had, I used only honey,mixed into heated milk, love this bread texture, absolutely perfect, thanks again! Thanks for the tip on mixing the honey in the milk. I never thought of that. I do agree with you on this recipe…it is fabulous!!
I am constantly looking for diabetic friendly recipes for my fiance. This one is perfect!! Though I kneaded the dough by hand, I followed this recipe pretty much as is — foil tent and all. I had to vary the rising times though — the 10minute rest time in my case I made about 30minutes, and the final 30min rise had to be closer to 45 minutes for me.
Jenny, this is my go to bread. I make it about twice a week. I got a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas and immediately wanted to try bread.
It is so easy to make and tastes delicious!! I cannot WAIT to try all these other breads. Thank you for sharing these wonderful recipes!
I fooled around with whole wheat off and on. I have a really large Kitchenaid — so large that I have to double the recipe. This versatile recipe gives me a loaf and some rolls! I have to bake bread for my family at least times a week and this recipe has made it enjoyable.
I have tried a few of your recipes and they are guaranteed gold, thank you so much for doing this. You can heat the milk slightly on the stove, very low. Or, in the microwave for short increments until warm. Test with a thermometer. If too hot, then cool until proper temperature. Kind of a nasty comment … did you even try the recipe? Look at your own computer before blaming othrrs. Debra, I had the same problem. When I clicked to see the recipe on the screen, I right clicked it then the printing screen showed and I just hit print and it came out.
I had the blank page when I went to print too, I closed it out tried again and it was good to go. This is my first time to try this recipe but I am excited! Thank you for sharing it! There is absolutely no issue with the PDF file. Btw, why would you even want to print it out when Jenny has explained it in such a simple and easy manner that even my grade 4 son can easily memorize?
Way to go Jenny! All of us readers loved your awesome simple recipe!! Good Lord Girl, tripped onto your youtube a couple of weeks back and all I can say is: Sure wish I were your favourite neighbour. Hope your family knows and appreciates just how darned lucky they are to have you.
Have a Polish friend that used to make me Kapusta? Typical man — fool! I was out of milk so I used water and a bit of extra oil. The bread came out wonderful, delicious. I hav recently found your web site and made the 90 min wheat bread. I made the breadstix also nifty. I just made your bread and it was so easy! Thank you for the step by step video. I love your recipes!! Is it ok to use only whole wheat flour rather than bread flour? I would like to know too. I am not allowed to eat any regular flour.
You might find some helpful information in the comments on other variations that people have done. Hi Jenny, just made a bread with your recipe, came out really well. What I would LOVE to know is why do the breads made of only whole-wheat flour, never rise to perfection?
My white flour breads always come out super! White flour will always make a lighter bread or cake. Whole wheat flour contains the germ and the bran, making it a heavier flour.
I made this bread, and it turned out great for a first try! I plan on making it many more times in the future. How much cinnamon do you think would be good to add? Do you think I would need more sugar to balance out the cinnamon? Madam, Can you tell me 2 cups flour wheat , in kilogram — ho many gram will be? Each and everybody cup will not be in same size. I hope your valuable reply. Jenny — Just came across your webpage and tried your simple whole wheat bread this a. Can I successfully double this recipe?
This bread is awesome. I usually make bread in a bread machine but that will go into storage. I added 1 cup of dried cranberries, raisins and pumpkin seeds. Saw your recipe, I am not a novice at bread baking, I love simple bread recipes. I will let you know how the congregation likes it. This recipe is great. I make 1 or 2 loaves each week. I added dry milk powder as well. When ready to make a loaf or two I measure from the big batch, the specific amounts for the recipe.
I use water or milk as the liquid plus the oil and egg s. I aerate or sift the dry ingredients as suggested. In the last big batch I used vital wheat gluten and no white flour. Comes out perfect each time. Thanks again, Jenny, for such great recipes. I just made a couple loaves this afternoon and went out great. Thank you Jenny, you inspired me baking with your simple techniques xx. I made this bread yesterday and it turned out great. I am so pleased. I am an experienced baker and I bake all the time.
Can I just use bread flour for this bread or must it be a mixture. Is whole wheat flour , whole wheat bread flour.? We do not get all purpose flour here, what is it? And here is some info on flours: I have tried this recipe before with successful results without using a stand mixer all mixing and kneading was done by hand.
However I wanted to know is the half cup all purpose flour or bread flour absolutely necessary? Can I substitute it with something else? Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful and easy recipe with us. Instead of kneading 50 turns by hand, how long csn I knead it with the mixer? Thanks for your reply. Hi Gladys, Mix on speed 1 to incorporate ingredients to the desired consistency then Speed 2 for one or more minutes is fine on Kitchen Aid stand mixer..
The bread was soft and had a nice color and tasted really good too. My family members absolutely loved it and I plan to make more this weekend for us and some friends. Thanks Jenny for a simple, yet wonderfully tasting recipe! You could try but glass loaf pans are usually larger than metal so it might not rise as tall and you would have to reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees F. This is the best wheat bread recipe i ever made!
It is super moist and really tasty. I Doubled the recipe and didnt change the time and it was perfect. Even my husband who hate brown bread loved it! I will try the no egg recipe next time. Btw, i plan on making some more loaf to freeze. Do you recommend slicing before freezing? Or juat freeze the whole bread? Made this recipe … came out like really well … yummy bread … thank you dear for this simple and easy Make: Love what you do. As I had one egg and about 1 cup of soya milk substitute for milk left in my fridge, I decided to give your recipe a try and it turned out well despite the whole meal flour was way passed its expiry date just given to me by my sister.
I know what to buy on my next trip to Australia; good flour and baking utensils since we have limited choice available locally population is only half a million for the whole country.
I had a small issue with the way it is written. You have hidden some important details in the preamble. I did not use a mixer and did not triple the kneading time so my first attempt crumbled when sliced. The second time I got it right with great results. I keep almond milk in stock but not cows milk so I used the almond milk and loved the mild nutty flavour it adds.
What an amazing loaf of bread, I was a bit concerned about converting Cups into Metric as I have had problems with this in other recipes but no problem with this, it really is simple to make. Thank you Jenny I will be using some of your other recipes. Also i bread sticks to the pan so can i grease it?
I have never used fresh yeast so you will have to research that, and step 7 of my recipe says to grease the pan. Jenny l love baking your bread recipe l even try to incorporate 14cup of ground flax seeds and it turned out excellent. Fe… did you change any of the other ingredients to compensate for the flax? I have used this recipe 10 or so times now, and turns out great every time! The whole family loves it, and always prefers when I bake bread than buy it at the store. Thanks so much for the amazing recipe!!!!
After years of trying to master bread and ending up with hit-and-miss results, I finally found a fool-proof loaf! This is now my standard loaf bread, in both white and wheat as the fancy strikes me.
Best bread recipe yet! I have been playing with different bread recipes for the last year or so, and this is the best recipe so far in taste, texture and results! Whole family likes and will be adding as a regular bake. This one, however turned out perfect. This is the recipe I will be using from now on.
Everything else was according to the recipe. I just made this and it came out great! Thank you so much for this recipe! I am going to make this every few days and never buy bread at the store again! I think next time I will add seeds to bake into the bread: Thanks for sharing this recipe… I am based in Mumbai India and love to bake my own loaf.
Have already made a couple of successful lovely loafs with this. Only thing different is the packet of wheat flour I am using though it is exactly the same brand from the same Miller. Any idea what could have gone wrong and how I could rectify? It could be that your yeast has gone stale. Yeast has a very short shelf life and once opened, it should be kept frozen. Can anyone tell me if i can only use plain flour instead of the wheat one? Will that be ok?
Do i need to change the quantity? Great videos my dear! Keep up the good work! That would be my Simple White Bread. I love this recipe so easy I stopped buying bread. Trying it with chia seed. Thank you so much for your recipe! I had never made bread with milk before, it adds such a lovely flavor!
My husband and I have both really enjoyed the loaf I made the other day. What would you say is the best way to store this loaf on the counter? In a plastic bag, tupperware, etc? Plastic if tightly sealed can create moisture, which is not good for bread. I store mine wrapped in foil and I refrigerate it after the 2nd day. Just had to let you know how great this bread is.
My 11 yr old daughter made this using a friends organic whole wheat flour and entered it in the county fair and she got a purple ribbon. Everyone who tasted it, loved it. Thanks for this recipe! This is the first bread I ever made that looked, sliced, and tasted like bread should. It was so easy and both my husband and I love it! How is it after it is frozen? I would like to make more than one loaf so that I could have it on hand. During the baking my bread gets the crack from the point where the dough rises above the tin.
Whereas in your pic the Crack is not so open… What precaution should I keep to avoid the crack. Found this recipe last week, and just whipped it together. The first time I try a new recipe I always make sure I follow instructions carefully. Well, the dough was very very runny…it seems that there was about 50 percent too much milk? I did mash it together with additional flour…and it is rising now…let me check it….
I will continue with it and bake it when it gets a bit higher. I love making my own bread. I am a Canadian retired in Argentina, and the bread here really leaves a lot to be desired. And it is quite expensive. Will let you know how it turns out. Should have known…made in Argentina!! Anyway, the loaf I made turned out surprisingly good, despite basically pouring it onto the counter and flouring it half to death and hardly kneading it at all and then scraping it together to put into the pan.
Very obliging dough that is for sure. A real go-to when you need a loaf of bread now…. I have just baked the wheat bread. I cut the risen dough into half as I got 2 smaller loaf tins.. It turns out surprisingly good after 35min. The crust, texture and its taste are v. Its my first suscessful and satisfying bread I have attempted. I wonder if you can help for an eggless bread? Can I use an 8 by 8 pan if its only 2 inches tall? Would you recommend any changes I should make?
So I asked my dad for help and he rolled the dough up like you did in the video, then he rolled it up again, so it was a square. Thank you Jenny, this was an awesome recipe! I just successfully baked my very first whole wheat bread and wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe! More power to your future endeavors! Hi…thanks for this easy recipe.
Only in the video you explain it wich for my was to late. The time to rise my dough was more than one our. I can think was for the lack of kneading process. I also indicate above to knead the dough 50 turns but your dough rising slowly may be for a different reason.
Please look at this post: Jenny, I stopped buying commercially made bread over a year ago due to all of the preservatives, HFCS, trans fats, etc…, and started making my own homemade loaves. They taste wonderful too! Every Sunday is bread baking day, so we have it for lunches for the week. Thanks for such a tasty and easy recipe!
Thank you ever so much for this beautiful recipe. Spot on at the very first attempt. Watching the video was a great help. I hand kneaded all through. The bread was super soft and flavour was wonderful.
Thanks once again wish I could share my pictures. I wish I had seen the correction during the video saying to grease the pan! I had to pry the loaf out of the pan and the bottom did not come out with the rest of the loaf. The bread was a nice texture and very flavorful. First time making whole wheat bread. Followed the recipe as written. Had a taste while warm with butter, brown cheese and jam. Next time will be adding my favorite nuts to this recipe. Jenny when I lived in Canada I was hooked to your show.
Now am hooked to your easy recipes. Have a great day. On the wholeweat bread can I use 1 tabl. Keep up the good work. You have giving us great healthy recipes. And please make more videos! I made twice with your recipe.
Both successful and ofcourse tasted very healthily delicious. Though I added less sugar. Any replacements for the milk? Someone may have make it with a substitute. I rarely use milk in my bread recipes. I just use plain water. It turns out perfect every time I make two to three loaves a week. I dont eat eggs but very keen to bake this wholewheat bread soon! Jenny, your recipe rocks! It is so unforgiving to make. I made it in a nutri ninja dough blender.
It tastes great and my picky teenage daughter loved it and so did my mom who is a great baker. I also love your entertaining way of teaching us to cook!
Living in India, working with completely different flour and yeast quality, I was apprehensive about trying this recipe as many other experiments had left me with dense, yeasty-smelling under cooked bread. The bread is a winner and I am really excited to try your cinnamon rolls next.
Thank you for the recipe. Thanks Jenny, I am sticking with your recipes. I only use whole milk and works just fine. I also substitute honey for the sugar. It all works well. I only use whole meal bread, which I buy from the market. The taste and quality is never consistent. Now, with your help, I shall make my own.
Thank you so much! I just made this recipe and it turned out amazing! Hi Jenny, I want to say thanks for this recipe and how easy it was. Jenny, thank you so much for this recipe. This loaf came out beautifully! It is light, moist and will now be our bread for all times! Note to others, I used only whole wheat flour. My bread took about an hour to rise but other than that it was perfect.
I live in New Orleans so maybe being below sea level was a factor or the humidity! Jenny I love this recipe but was wondering if I could use water instead of milk for someone with a milk allergy. I have only used milk so you would have to experiment or you could try a non-dairy milk alternative.
Hi Karen, I always use what I have on hand. Sometimes I use milk or slightly soured milk, almond milk or water. The taste may be slightly different and the colour may be as well, but any of them work I find.
I have been baking bread for some 40 years.
