End of the road for the VW Beetle. I had minimum success with JC for 8 weeks 13 pounds and was following the program diligently. Too bad I only had 2 thin slice. This is a proven and consistent recipe and should not be dense. While no university studies support the theory that varying caloric intake aids weight loss, the high quality of the food and the relatively large portion sizes have been praised by Health magazine, Dr.

This is now my standard loaf bread, in both white and wheat as the fancy strikes me. Best bread recipe yet! I have been playing with different bread recipes for the last year or so, and this is the best recipe so far in taste, texture and results! Whole family likes and will be adding as a regular bake. This one, however turned out perfect.
This is the recipe I will be using from now on. Everything else was according to the recipe. I just made this and it came out great! Thank you so much for this recipe! I am going to make this every few days and never buy bread at the store again!
I think next time I will add seeds to bake into the bread: Thanks for sharing this recipe… I am based in Mumbai India and love to bake my own loaf.
Have already made a couple of successful lovely loafs with this. Only thing different is the packet of wheat flour I am using though it is exactly the same brand from the same Miller. Any idea what could have gone wrong and how I could rectify? It could be that your yeast has gone stale. Yeast has a very short shelf life and once opened, it should be kept frozen. Can anyone tell me if i can only use plain flour instead of the wheat one? Will that be ok? Do i need to change the quantity?
Great videos my dear! Keep up the good work! That would be my Simple White Bread. I love this recipe so easy I stopped buying bread. Trying it with chia seed. Thank you so much for your recipe! I had never made bread with milk before, it adds such a lovely flavor! My husband and I have both really enjoyed the loaf I made the other day. What would you say is the best way to store this loaf on the counter?
In a plastic bag, tupperware, etc? Plastic if tightly sealed can create moisture, which is not good for bread. I store mine wrapped in foil and I refrigerate it after the 2nd day.
Just had to let you know how great this bread is. My 11 yr old daughter made this using a friends organic whole wheat flour and entered it in the county fair and she got a purple ribbon.
Everyone who tasted it, loved it. Thanks for this recipe! This is the first bread I ever made that looked, sliced, and tasted like bread should. It was so easy and both my husband and I love it! How is it after it is frozen? I would like to make more than one loaf so that I could have it on hand.
During the baking my bread gets the crack from the point where the dough rises above the tin. Whereas in your pic the Crack is not so open… What precaution should I keep to avoid the crack.
Found this recipe last week, and just whipped it together. The first time I try a new recipe I always make sure I follow instructions carefully. Well, the dough was very very runny…it seems that there was about 50 percent too much milk?
I did mash it together with additional flour…and it is rising now…let me check it…. I will continue with it and bake it when it gets a bit higher. I love making my own bread. I am a Canadian retired in Argentina, and the bread here really leaves a lot to be desired. And it is quite expensive. Will let you know how it turns out. Should have known…made in Argentina!! Anyway, the loaf I made turned out surprisingly good, despite basically pouring it onto the counter and flouring it half to death and hardly kneading it at all and then scraping it together to put into the pan.
Very obliging dough that is for sure. A real go-to when you need a loaf of bread now…. I have just baked the wheat bread. I cut the risen dough into half as I got 2 smaller loaf tins.. It turns out surprisingly good after 35min. The crust, texture and its taste are v. Its my first suscessful and satisfying bread I have attempted. I wonder if you can help for an eggless bread? Can I use an 8 by 8 pan if its only 2 inches tall? Would you recommend any changes I should make?
So I asked my dad for help and he rolled the dough up like you did in the video, then he rolled it up again, so it was a square. Thank you Jenny, this was an awesome recipe!
I just successfully baked my very first whole wheat bread and wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe! More power to your future endeavors! Hi…thanks for this easy recipe. Only in the video you explain it wich for my was to late. The time to rise my dough was more than one our. I can think was for the lack of kneading process.
I also indicate above to knead the dough 50 turns but your dough rising slowly may be for a different reason. Please look at this post: Jenny, I stopped buying commercially made bread over a year ago due to all of the preservatives, HFCS, trans fats, etc…, and started making my own homemade loaves. They taste wonderful too! Every Sunday is bread baking day, so we have it for lunches for the week. Thanks for such a tasty and easy recipe!
Thank you ever so much for this beautiful recipe. Spot on at the very first attempt. Watching the video was a great help. I hand kneaded all through.
The bread was super soft and flavour was wonderful. Thanks once again wish I could share my pictures. I wish I had seen the correction during the video saying to grease the pan! I had to pry the loaf out of the pan and the bottom did not come out with the rest of the loaf. The bread was a nice texture and very flavorful. First time making whole wheat bread. Followed the recipe as written. Had a taste while warm with butter, brown cheese and jam.
Next time will be adding my favorite nuts to this recipe. Jenny when I lived in Canada I was hooked to your show. Now am hooked to your easy recipes. Have a great day. On the wholeweat bread can I use 1 tabl. Keep up the good work. You have giving us great healthy recipes. And please make more videos! I made twice with your recipe. Both successful and ofcourse tasted very healthily delicious.
Though I added less sugar. Any replacements for the milk? Someone may have make it with a substitute. I rarely use milk in my bread recipes.
I just use plain water. It turns out perfect every time I make two to three loaves a week. I dont eat eggs but very keen to bake this wholewheat bread soon! Jenny, your recipe rocks! It is so unforgiving to make. I made it in a nutri ninja dough blender. It tastes great and my picky teenage daughter loved it and so did my mom who is a great baker. I also love your entertaining way of teaching us to cook! Living in India, working with completely different flour and yeast quality, I was apprehensive about trying this recipe as many other experiments had left me with dense, yeasty-smelling under cooked bread.
The bread is a winner and I am really excited to try your cinnamon rolls next. Thank you for the recipe. Thanks Jenny, I am sticking with your recipes. I only use whole milk and works just fine. I also substitute honey for the sugar. It all works well. I only use whole meal bread, which I buy from the market.
The taste and quality is never consistent. Now, with your help, I shall make my own. Thank you so much! I just made this recipe and it turned out amazing! Hi Jenny, I want to say thanks for this recipe and how easy it was. Jenny, thank you so much for this recipe. This loaf came out beautifully!
It is light, moist and will now be our bread for all times! Note to others, I used only whole wheat flour. My bread took about an hour to rise but other than that it was perfect. I live in New Orleans so maybe being below sea level was a factor or the humidity! Jenny I love this recipe but was wondering if I could use water instead of milk for someone with a milk allergy.
I have only used milk so you would have to experiment or you could try a non-dairy milk alternative. Hi Karen, I always use what I have on hand. Sometimes I use milk or slightly soured milk, almond milk or water.
The taste may be slightly different and the colour may be as well, but any of them work I find. I have been baking bread for some 40 years. I think you can use whole milk but it might make the bread a little heavier.
If you try please let us know how it turns out. Thanks for this great recipe! Instructions were so easy made my first loaf every and it turned out fantastic. Had no trouble following you and had a Laugh too. Next Im making cinnamon rolls a family favorite! I have made this 6 or 7 times and usually it turns out perfectly. I use heritage grain organic flour from my local farm which imparts a wonderful taste and texture. So much easier to slice than bread made in the bread machine!
You might like my honey wheat bread. I have found that some recipes just work better with eggs in them, esp some that use only whole wheat flour and not white. I made this and the Cinnamon Rolls this past week, and they both turned out great!
My 7 year old daughter and I are huge fans of you. We appreciate your simple and elegant personality, not to mention yummy recipes. The best I can do is refer you to the metric conversion chart in my blog: I was looking for someting easy and good and this bread is fabulous. My son wants to eat only sandwiches whit this bread. I used Wheat Montana brand white whole wheat flour. I used 2 cups of this flour, and just left out the AP flour because whole wheat absorbs more moisture.
Everything else I did the same as in the video including using the kitchenaid mixer. I am so excited to find this recipe as I have had so many bread fails. I love the breads simplicity with only one rise! I just used this recipe to make hot dog buns. I baked them at for minutes. If bread is combination whole-grain and white — use larger pan. So Soft and easy to slice. I have to say this is the best recipe for Whole Wheat Bread that I have tried.
Perfect for those who are looking for a 1 loaf recipe. I may try adding some flax seed next time. Hi Jenny, I watched this video 5 times, and before i was not convinced at all. Yesterday I tried your recipe, followed it and it worked out so well. Most people like the smell of freshly baked bread and that smell comes partly from the yeast.
My husband and I love wheat bread but I have not found a good recipe for it. This recipe was just what I was looking for. I have tried recently to make wheat bread and have failed miserably. All my loaves have looked like brown bricks. This recipe was perfect. I can now make wheat bread. I tried this for the first time and it turned out so well. Love your video, you are so funny! I am so inspired that I went and bought a whole bunch of ingredients! Can I add ingredients such as oats and seeds?
This recipe will not make a French baguette, which is a very different process. As for adding things, I only make this bread this way so you would have to experiment if you want to add things. The loaf may not be as soft and light but you never know… Let us know how it turns out. I made this for the first time and it turned out well. Subsequently, it came out with large holes and a strong yeasty smell — too strong. I am just guessing, over kneading in my mixer , or over proof?
I always seem to have the same issue large holes, and rubbery texture when I bake it in a loaf pan. I will try it again. And when u said to beat on high for 2 minutes , what attachment do I use? The whisk , or the hook dough? It might help to watch the video again. A yeasty smell can be from proofing at too warm a temperature or the oven not being hot enough when you first put the loaf in.
Holes are from air pockets created when rolling the loaf so you may be using too much flour when shaping. Next time, pay attention to every detail and do not make any changes in the recipe, including the size of the pan. As I said, it would help to watch the video again, and good luck. I usually made bread using a bread maker machine. I do love the machine. Although a friend showed me some of the benefits of not using one.
But, since counter space is limited, would I be able to use the machine for the mixing of the bread and transfer to a bread pan before the baking process? Hi Jenny, I have tried this recipe several times and while my bread looks okay and tastes good, it never rises as high as yours.
I live in Nicaragua, and it is very warm and humid. Is the humidity the problem? I have tested my yeast and it appears to work find. Can you suggest anything? Humidity is actually beneficial for rising dough. Please look here for a possible solution: Thank you so much for those suggestions. I changed some things about how I measured and took more care with the temperatures. The loaf is a little better. Hi Jenny, I have been watching all your videos and have also tried some of your receipes.
And one thing I make often is this bread. Thank you for the recipes. I also like the colorful utensils and tools you use in your. You will be very surprised to know from where I live.
All the best to you. Hey Jenny my wife uses your recipe and it always turns out perfect. We have also used this recipe to make cinnamon rolls and they were fantastic. We made hotdog buns last night with this same recipe and again a winner as always thank you so much for this recipe and all that you do.
Ok Jenny I have used the basic white bread recipe for making bread sticks,cinnamon rolls,hot dog buns, dinner rolls and now I am going to make cinnamon raisin bread.
This is a great all purpose bread dough that tastes wonderful any way you use it. My family,coworkers and friends are very happy I found this recipe. Thanks again for you recipes and videos. I made a mistake at the grocery store the other day and bought wheat flour. I am baking a loaf every other day. The only changes I made was to use home made butter and raw honey. Hi Jenny, This recipe is amazing! I made it about 10 times and experimenting with different ingredients.
In stead of regular sugar I used coconut sugar, instead of using vegetable, canola or olive oil I used coconut oil. The bread turns out with a mild sweet taste and you would never guess it has coconut oil. I use almond milk instead of milk.
My family and friends love this bread. I make it at least every other week. I also make your original recipe. Thank you for making this bread recipe so easy and delicious!!! This is the second time I made this recipe and it turned out perfect again.
The only thing I changed from the recipe is that I use my Kitchen Aid mixer to knead the bread. It is a great tasting bread. This is now my whole wheat standard! Thank you for this great recipe!!! I made this bread today and it turned out beautifully!!! Plus the recipe is so easy: Great and easy recipe.
I would like to make 2 loaves at a time. Would I just double all ingrediants? I make a double batch of this every week. I just double everything. The two families I make it for just love it. I made your bread for the first time today, but decided to try making two loaves to bake at the same time and it worked, but you need to be prepared and on your game to minimize the time between the first and second batch.
I made each batch separately because my mixer is not that big. For the second loaf I had the dry ingredients already together, and next time I will have the egg and oil in the milk in advance to save more time.
I will now refine my technique further. Hi jenny, i followed your recipe. It tasted good fresh from the oven, but as it gets to room temp, the crust became so crusty and tough and the inside a bit hard. Any idea what could be wrong? Jenny its beyond awesome i have tried many recipes but every time i got strongly smelling yeast n under cooked neither raised bread.. I am a professional who practically lives on a plane. Thank you for this wonderful demo.
It worked like a charm with only 1 minor difference. Tthank you so much for this easy recipe,Your recipes are wonderful. I just started using many of them, My favorites so far are the bread, I have been doing both breads for my family and friends, Thank you again for getting us foodies excited about great recipes to make for our families!
The recipe calls for either instant or dry active yeast. Steven, I have made this bread with both instant and dry active yeast and they both work very well with my recipe. I have to make another one this weekend. The loaf came out perfect just like you said. I found your video on YouTube completely by chance then subscribed to your page because your recipes look amazing and decided to try making this bread for my husband.
I had followed all the instructions for aerating the flour, measuring ingredients, etc. As a vegan who loves baking, I tried making some substitutions. The dough took a while to rise above the pan about 70 minutes , but my pan was taller than the one required.
Really light for whole wheat bread at least and slightly sweet. And vegan, so I got to dig in! Hi Jenny, Why does the smell of yeast stays in my bread? You sound it so easy and healthy. Yeast is what gives homemade bread that great smell. If you bread smells off, give me a little more detail and I will try to help. Made this twice and though it tastes very good, it never rose an inch above my bread pan and was very dense.
My yeast is fresh and I measured correctly and checked the temp of the milk. I will try again and see. This is a proven and consistent recipe and should not be dense.
Please check this section for a solution: I tried it again and the bread came out beautifully. I was careful to measure the flours and check the temp of the milk. I raised it next to a heating vent on the floor and it rose in 35 minutes, no problem.
Hi Jenny Love your baking video. Made your whole wheat bread it was so good also would like to know where do you perchance your colourful gadgets. I add raisins and diced dates. Rub on sesame seeds or other variety of dried fruit. Add almost anything I like the flavor of. Can I mix the flour and make it in my food processor? Or in a bread machine?
Jenny, I love your recipes. The Simple whole wheat bread has now become a regular for me. Have you tried to make bread with rice flour? Can it be done? Had rice flour bread due to allergies when I was a teen and it was Awful!
From a bakery so they knew what they were doing. I tried the wholewheat recipe and it was delicious. Just one thing I know in your recipe you talk about the dimensions of the loaf pan. Can you tell me the height of the loaf pan used in your recipe. I make whole wheat bread for the first time I my life and we loved it.
Could I use this same recipe for whole wheat rolls? By the way, after lunch with your meat loaf, whole wheat bread and squash, his sugar count was below a hundred.
Thank you so much for your recipies and your videos. We ar having chicken and potatoes and wholewheat bread tomorrow. I have never made rolls with this recipe but you could scroll through the comments to see if anyone else has. I had tried whole many wheat bread recipes before but yours is the best.

My mother was Polish so another reason to love your recipes! Hi, Jenny, and thank you for this wonderful recipe for whole wheat bread. It is high, moist, tender, but with body so it slices well for sandwiches. I made only a slight change, and used coarse wholemeal flour from foodireland. I would stick to reg. Thank you so much for sharing all your great recipes!

I have been following you for years! So enjoy your videos. Have been using your ww bread recipe for awhile. I have a w stand mixer. I always make 4 loaves, since my mixer can handle it.
