Whole Wheat bread and pancakes

Return to Daves Planet

So I brought my whole wheat pancake mix and a hot plate to a church pot-luck. The kids told me there was no way I could beat their moms whole wheat pancakes. Later the mom tells me her kids are pressing her to ask for my recipie because they liked mine better.

Whole Wheat Pancake mix:
1 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbs sugar or brown sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbs oil
1 egg

The whole wheat bread recipie is one that I developed after much trial. Many internet recipies describe a mix of wheat and white flour, but I only bake from freshly ground wheat. This recipie works great in my bread maker, I haven't kept any notes about oven baking.

Whole Wheat bread:
12 oz (1.5 cup) water
1 tsp garlic salt OR regular salt
2 tsp yeast
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp vital glutin (prevents falling)
2 Tbsp molasses
2 oz (1/4 cup) oil (I use olive oil)
4 cups wheat flour
