My Go-To-Works-For-Everything Bread Recipe

I make this recipe weekly. One batch will yield a small loaf and some burger buns or dinner rolls. I use my bread machine's dough cycle. If you don't have one, proof yeast, mix dough, and rise once. Then skip to ****

Set out 1 1/4 cups of milk, 2T of butter, and 1 egg. Allow them to come to room temperature.
Add these ingredients and the following:
Scant 1/4c honey
1tsp kosher salt
3 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2tsp yeast

When cycle completes, remove the dough.


For loaf, shape and place in loaf pan. For round (hamburger) buns, roll and cut with a cutter or canning jar ring. For hoagie rolls or hotdog buns, roll and cut with a sharp knife into rectangles. Shape dinner rolls by hand. You get the picture.

Let rise one hour. May be frozen at this point.

Bake on 350 until golden.

Hey Renee,
Does this recipe work if I let it just complete the entire bread machine cycle and bake that way??
