ISO your best everyday whole wheat bread

I want to start making my own bread for everyday... Whole wheat.
Needs to be pretty comparable to store bread so the kids will still eat it. I don't like the bread machine much so no need to use that.

Also, another question. What kind of pans do you find bake best? My aluminum pans seem to burn the outside faster, the glass does a little better but sometimes I have the same problem, at 350. I've got the oven thermometer, I am at 350. Bake slower?

I just made a loaf using the recipe on the back of

the bag of King Arthur, White Whole Wheat flour. It was pretty good. I did add some of the walnuts the recipe calls for and I wouldn't do that next time. I just didn't care for the flavor, but I am thinking of adding sunflower seeds next time. The flour is still a little darker that white flour but much lighter than regular whole wheat. I have also seen the same white wheat flour in organic, other brands though. I find that any whole wheat recipe turns out much lighter and finer textured with the white wheat.

I too use the recipe from the bag of white whole wheat from King Arthur. But I use the traditional ww flour from KA. I seem to have a long learning curve when I try to change what ww flour I use, i tried the white ww and did not do well with it, so i returned to the traditional ww flour. I use the steel bread pans from KA as well. I bake at 350*F for 40 to 45 minutes.

I just started making bread again after many failed attempts. The whole wheat bread I make is great and easy to make. I got my recipe at All recipes – complete resource for recipes and cooking tips and it's called Honey wheat bread. I use bread flour and whole wheat flour in my wheat breads. I think the bread flour really makes a difference.

All of you are making me hungry and jealous as you can only buy white flour here. As for pans the best are the dark ones---I have two black ones and they make the best bread--I read that in a bread book and it's true in my experience

I would be very happy if I could find the dark/black bread pans to bake in. My Grandma used those and her bread was the best.

watch eBay. Right now there are two listings of the old bread baking pans. I have bought many old, useful, functioning kitchen items on eBay, including an old Hobart mixer.
