It's so yummy, but it's super crumbly It's from Hillbilly Housewife:
Honey Wheat
•1-1/2 cups warm tap water
•1/2 cup honey
•1 tablespoon oil
•1 teaspoon salt
•4 cups whole wheat flour
•2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Measure the ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed. Make a well in the flour and sprinkle the yeast into it. Set the machine to it’s Whole Wheat Cycle. On my machine this lasts for 3 hours and 40 minutes. Press Start, and let the machine work it’s magic. Remove the cooked bread from the pan after baking and allow it to cool before slicing. Makes a 2 lb loaf.

This is my kids favorite whole wheat bread. The honey makes it very sweet, and soft. This bread lasts longer than some machine made breads before going stale. The honey acts as a natural preservative


This bread is really yummy, even my "I-only-eat-white-bread" dh likes it. But it crumbles really badly. Should I add an egg? I used the machine to knead but baked in the regular oven so I could have a regular shaped loaf. Any suggestions?
