Soft Prairie Gold Whole Wheat Bread (Hard White Whole Wheat Flour)

Prairie Gold Whole Wheat Bread (Light White Colored Whole Wheat)


  • 3 cups Prairie Gold White Whole Wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (for added lightness)
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 ½ cups warm water (110-115°F)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • Olive oil or cooking spray (for greasing)


    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Prairie Gold White Whole Wheat flour, all-purpose flour, vital wheat gluten, and salt.
    2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the active dry yeast in warm water. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy.
    3. Stir the honey or maple syrup and olive oil into the yeast mixture.
    4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a shaggy dough forms.
    5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, or until the dough is smooth, elastic, and slightly tacky to the touch.
    6. Place the kneaded dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 to 1 ½ hours, or until it has doubled in size.
    7. Punch down the risen dough to release excess air. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and shape it into a loaf.
    8. Place the shaped dough into a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan. Cover the pan with a kitchen towel and let the dough rise again for about 30-45 minutes.
    9. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    10. Once the dough has risen, place the loaf pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
    11. Remove the bread from the oven and carefully transfer the loaf from the pan to a wire rack. Let it cool completely before slicing.
    12. Slice and enjoy your Soft and Fluffy Prairie Gold White Whole Wheat Bread with Added Wheat Gluten. Each bite is a harmonious blend of flavors and textures, making it a wonderful addition to your meals or a satisfying snack.

    Tip: The inclusion of vital wheat gluten enhances the bread’s structure and creates a soft, tender crumb. It’s a fantastic way to achieve a light and airy texture while retaining the nutritional benefits of whole wheat flour.
