Wheat Bread

Wheat bread is a staple of the Main House that is used at breakfast for toast!  Try it with one of our Farmstead Jams or Peanut Butter!

Makes about 3 loaves

In a stand mixer, proof together:

2 c water, warm

2T yeast 

1/8c sorghum

1T sugar


When the mixture bubbles, add:

2c buttermilk

1/2c vegetable oil

1lb 4oz all purpose flour

1lb 4oz wheat flour

1lb Bread flour

2T iodized salt


Mix together with the dough hook on speed 1. Adjust with water if necessary (may need some additional water). Mix on low speed for about 3 minutes and medium speed for 2 minute. Remove mixture and place in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise until double in size. Punch down and portion in 1lb 12oz pieces .Shape the dough to fit in a loaf pan. Allow to rise in buttered loaf pans until double in size. When proofed, slash 1 time down the middle. Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. When finished, turn out of the pans and on to cooling racks to avoid getting soggy. Wrap and store as needed.
