This is by far my favorite go-to Moist Wheat Bread Recipe because it’s so easy to make. It stays more moist compared to other wheat bread recipes that I’ve tried.
This homemade bread comes together by hand since no kneading is required! Just a few good stirs to bind the dough together and a good-sized bowl and bread pans to make one of the easiest Wheat bread recipes! I love this recipe and with the 5th year going since I published this recipe I still make this bread! You can’t beat an easy bread recipe, which is why I turn to it.
My brother-in-law even asked for the recipe after trying this bread! A big thanks to my friend Marina, who introduced me to this easy bread recipe years back. If you haven’t made homemade healthy bread before, this is definitely a recipe to try since it’s so easy-to-make and almost hard to mess up.
Moist Wheat Bread Recipe
- 3 cups of warm water
- 1 1/2 tbsp dry yeast
- 1 1/2 tbsp salt
- 6 1/2 cups flour 4 cups of white & 2 1/2 cups of wheat flour
- In a large measuring cup combine the yeast and lukewarm water. Set aside. Whisk together the flours and salt in a large bowl. Add in the yeast mixture and stir until dough comes together. The mixture should be tacky and somewhat sticky. Mix well with hands.
- Cover dough and let rise for 30 minutes until doubled in volume.
- With wet hands divide the dough evenly into two greased loaf pans.
- Allow loaves to rise until doubled (about 1 hour.) Bake at 375° F for 25 minutes.

How is this wheat bread moist?
I come to believe the semi-sticky texture is what gives this bread lots of moistness! This is not your typical loaf of bread. It’s fantastic with tea sandwiches, spreads and soups!
Can I knead my bread?
Kneading is not required here, since the dough is sticky. We want that stickiness for moist bread! However, for a drier loaf add more flour and knead.
Can I use all white flour or all wheat flour?
A blend of both works best since all wheat flour can tend to be dense. All white flour could possibly be a better option however texture and flavor can vary.
- This bread is best when fresh. Slice and freeze any leftovers to retain freshness!
- Turn this bread into round loaves by placing on parchment paper rather than bread pans and then sliding into a hot dutch oven pot or pre-heated skillet!
