  1. Follow directions for your bread machine for the order to add ingredients.
  2. Put the liquid in first, followed by the dry ingredients. Make a small well in the flour and put the yeast in that. Use the whole wheat setting on the machine.
  3. Watch bread while it goes through the first mixing cycle, and if it doesn’t form a ball you may need to add more flour or water, a little bit at a time. The dough should make a firm ball and be only slightly sticky.
