Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add all of the ingredients to the pan in the order listed.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #4 for the whole wheat.
Press the crust button to choose your desired crust color.
Press the bread weight button to choose the weight you are making. The time display will change as you select the size of the bread as larger loaves take a longer time to cook.
Press the start button to begin the bread making cycle. After the bread has been kneading for about 10 minutes, check the dough to see if it is nice and smooth. Everyone’s bread starter may be slightly different so you may need to add ¼ cup more flour if the dough is too wet, or a few tablespoons of warm water if the dough looks too dry.
Once the bread has baked, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your bread is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine. If you do not remove the loaf immediately, the bread machine will automatically go into a warming cycle, keeping your bread warmed for one hour.
Flip the pan over and gently tap it on the counter to remove the bread. Make sure the kneading paddles are taken out of the bread loaf. Slice and enjoy!
