  • 1/4 oz active dry yeast (1 envelope)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour


  1. Place ingredients in your bread machine as directed by your manufacturer.
  2. Set to dough cycle. Check the consistency after about 10 minutes - if it looks dry, add a little more water.
  3. After initial rise, remove, shape in a large round loaf (or whatever you like), let rise again on a cornmeal dusted baking pan.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 deg. If desired, brush loaf with an egg wash (one egg beaten with 1 tbl. cold water). Slash loaf with sharp knife. Place in oven. After 15 min., reduce temperature to 350 deg.
  5. Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until loaf is done - an instant thermometer should read 205 deg.
  6. Turn onto cooling rack and let cool.
  7. Note: If using flax seed, 2/3 cups seed will grind into 1 cup flax meal.
  8. Note2: If using egg wash, you may also sprinkle loaf with whole flax or poppy seeds.
