Honey Wheat Berry Bread Recipe

1 cup water (cold water)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons instant potato flakes
1/2 cup hard red wheat berries (cooked)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups bread flour (or all-purpose)
3 tablespoons powdered milk (Non-Fat Dry)
2 teaspoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
2 teaspoons instant yeast (or quick rising yeast)


1  **To cook wheat berries**.
2  Combine 1/2 cup rinsed wheat berries and 2 cups water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered for about 1 ½ to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, adding water if necessary. ( Cook until soft and some are popping open)
3 Drain any standing water before adding the cooked wheat berries to the dough.
4 Add drained wheat berries and 1 cup of cold water in the bread machine pan, Cool to lukewarm.
5 Add the rest of the liquid ingredients followed by the dry ingredients on top, yeast will be last.
6 Set bread machine to dough setting. Check in a few minutes, if dough looks too dry or too wet add a few tablespoons of warm water or flour to get a good soft dough consistency.
7 When dough setting is complete (my machine is 1 ½ hours) remove dough from bread machine pan onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a roll. Put in a bread pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Let rise for about 40 minutes to 1 hour or until about 1 ½ inches above pan.
8 Cook on 350 degrees on middle rack of oven for about 30 to 35 minutes. Should be golden brown ( when thumped with your finger on the bottom of the loaf it should sound hollow )
9 Remove bread from pan to cooling rack to cool. Let it cool at least 1 hour before slicing.
