Do you believe us when we say you can Make 6 Loaves of Whole Wheat Bread in One Hour?
Homemade bread is one of those things that can scare you away from even attempting to try it. You are dealing with yeast, and different types of wheat and flour. Then you have the whole issue of “kneading and letting it rise”.
It can be very intimidating to someone that has never made bread before. Put your worries aside as we teach you how to make 6 Loaves of Whole Wheat Bread in One Hour.
(This one is made with white bread)
We love bread. We always have, and always will. We are bread junkies. Homemade bread is especially amazing and delicious. And we always thought that it was too much effort.
We always snickered at the people who grind their own wheat. Seriously, who has time for that?! Definitely not us.
Well, we are now eating our own words. We are even grinding our own wheat into flour. Our husbands think we are super women.
We can whip out 6 loaves of bread from start to finish (that even includes grinding the flour, letting it rise, AND baking time!!) in about 1 hour!

Our recipe for 6 loaves of whole wheat bread in one hour uses SAF yeast. SAF red label instant yeast is a high potency, fast acting yeast.
SAF yeast can be added directly to your dry ingredients without being activated in water first. We love the convenience of SAF. It is twice as active as regular compressed yeast.
If you can’t find SAF in your local grocery store, we recommend a quick rising yeast. Yeast that is expired or old will not work well in a recipe.
When a recipe calls for letting your yeast proof, that means dissolving your package of quick rise yeast into a bowl of warm water that is about 110 degrees. Adding a little honey or sugar will help it proof faster.
After about 5-10 minutes your yeast will have a creamy foam on the surface. Then you know it is ready to add to your other bread ingredients.
store bought flour vs fresh milled flour
We have used both store bought whole wheat flour and freshly milled flour. There are times when the store bought has been quick and convenient.
We have also used half whole wheat flour and half white flour in the recipe for a delicious tasting bread.
But if you have a mill, the bread made with home milled flour is so much tastier than the store bought flour – especially in flavor and texture. And fresh ground flour usually produces a faster rise.
The good news is that both store bought and fresh milled are good in this recipe. But if you don’t have a way to ground your own wheat, you are fine in using the store bought whole wheat flour for 6 delicious loaves of bread.
seed bread add-ins
We get a lot of comments from our readers saying that they love a good homemade seed bread. No worries. You can add seeds and nuts for a little bit of health and crunch to your bread. Here are some great seed and nut add ins:
- Rolled Oats – we like to add a little into the bread dough and save some to sprinkle lightly on top of the loaf right before baking.
- Millet – Toast the millet over medium heat in a dry pan for a few minutes before adding to your bread dough.
- Sunflower seeds – Delicious in the bread and sprinkled lightly on top.
- Chopped walnuts – Add a small amount into your bread dough.
- Pumpkin seeds – This is great added into the dough.
how to make 6 loaves of whole wheat bread in one hour
If you are grinding your own wheat, grind what will be needed for this recipe and set aside. You can also use store bought whole wheat flour.
Using your Bosch Mixer, insert the dough hook in place. Add water, oil, honey, yeast, and 6 cups of whole wheat flour into the bowl then switch to “m” to incorporate.
Add another 7-8 cups of flour, and salt. Turn the speed on the Bosch mixer to “1”. Continue adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough cleans the edges of the bowl (takes only a minute or two).
Continue kneading dough on speed “2” of your Bosch mixer for another 6-8 minutes.
Oil your hands and add a little oil onto a clean area of your kitchen counter. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and shape into loaves.
Put into greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans until double in size (usually about 20 minutes).
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. They will turn out nice and golden.
