Homemade Bread Recipe


Homemade bread recipe

My standby bread recipe for everyday loaves makes a lightly-sweet, fluffy loaf that we’re in love with. I made a few adjustments to the Honey Grain Bread recipe found in our Oster Bread Machine recipe booklet. It’s a must try!

Honey Grain Bread (1.5 pound loaf)


  • 1 and 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 and 1/4 cups white organic pastry flour
  • 1 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast


  • Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan.
  • Measure and add dry ingredients (except yeast) to pan.
  • Using your finger, form a small hole in the flour for the yeast. (DO NOT let yeast come in contact with liquid ingredients.) Carefully pour yeast into the hole.
  • Insert bread pan into bread maker and close lid.
  • Choose the “basic” or “whole wheat” setting, and choose your desired crust color (I use light).
  • Press the START button, go about your day, and a few hours later you’ll enjoy a house that smells like a bakery (this recipe takes 3 hrs. 40 min.).

We love our bread covered with butter, jam, served with eggs in the morning, made into grilled cheese, or piled high into a big fat deli sandwich. This particular loaf has been stored in our refrigerator for up to three weeks with no problems.

In fact, in three years we have never had a loaf go moldy. When it gets too old it just dries out, which we don’t mind because we turn it into croutons or bread crumbs.
