Whole Wheat Bread... with Color

I thought this idea from 'Outnumbered' was a fun one on  
It get's your kids involved in your baking and if your kid's aren't the biggest fans of wheat bread, it may even get  them excited about eating it.
When you are making bread... take some of the dough out for your kids.... add just a bit of food coloring and let them knead it....  I think back to being a kid and I am sure that I would love a multi-colored sandwich.

Also here is a simple  
Whole Wheat Honey Bread Recipe (makes 3 loaves)


  • 3 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 2 packages active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp. per package)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 5 cups bread flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour


  1. In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, and 1/3 cup honey. Add 5 cups bread flour, and stir to combine. Let set for 30 minutes, or until big and bubbly.
  2. Mix in 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/3 cup honey, and salt. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour. Flour a flat surface and knead with whole wheat flour until not real sticky - just pulling away from the counter, but still sticky to touch. This may take an additional 2 to 4 cups of whole wheat flour. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a dishtowel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  3. Punch down, and divide into 3 loaves. Place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans, and allow to rise until dough has topped the pans by one inch.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes; do not overbake. Optional: lightly brush the tops of loaves with 2 tablespoons melted butter when done to prevent crust from getting hard. Cool completely
