Sarah’s Wheat Bread Recipe

Step 1-

—-boil water 


—–do the yeast… 3Tablespoons yeast in small bowl with 1/2 C. WARM water and,  add 1/3 c regular white sugar. Do Not add yeast until oatmeal is cooled


ADD TO BOSCH   Add 2c. oatmeal to 3 1/2 C boiling water  (if water isn’t hot enough it doesn’t absorb the oatmeal as well)


Wait till it cools down to warm to add the rest of the ingredients. Too hot water will cook the yeast and kill it


Step 2

   When oatmeal has cooled down add
4 teaspoons salt

1 1/3 C Brown Sugar

6 Tablespoons oil (I’ve used melted coconut oil, olive oil and canola oil and they all work great)

Yeast Mixture

Around 8 cups of flour (or maybe a little more depending on altitude and weather)

            Sometimes I’ll use all 8 cups wheat flour (it makes a denser loaf that has a stronger taste)

4 cups of wheat flour, 4 white flour (this is what I do most often. Still wheat bread but not quite as dense)

Or, alternatively you could do 8 cups of white flour and make a white bread loaf


Step 3

   Knead for 6-10 minutes


Step 4


Prepare bread pans (this recipe makes 3) and divide dough into three equal portions


Important tip from Grandma… Use olive oil on your hands to form loafs to put in pans so the dough does not stick


Let rise in loaf pans for 45 min (usually in the winter we do, but summer will be shorter. Just until dough rises above the top of the loaf pan.) Cover the bread dough with a damp dish towel to keep it from drying out while it rises. 


Cook 350 for 30-40 min. in those loaf pans (usually it takes me around 35 minutes)



Makes 3 loafs
