This is my all-time favorite go-to bread recipe. Even people who turn their nose up at wheat bread seem to like this bread once they try it. It is really easy to make – and now that I have the MockMill to grind my grains with, it is even easier. I throughly enjoyed grinding the grains for this recipe in the MockMill – and I am now considering making more bread because it sure did not last long. Best of all with the MockMill my grains were evenly ground so there was no surprise hard bits in my bread! This recipe makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf of bread.


  • 1 cup plus 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups Kamut – freshly ground
  • 1 1/2 cups hard white wheat – freshly ground
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 12 fresh basil leaves shredded


  1. Make sure the water you use is warm, but not hot, then stir the yeast into the water and set it aside.
  2. Combine the salt, the two flours and the dry milk.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Add the fresh shredded basil to the flour mixture and mix it in so it is well distributed.
  5. Add the honey, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the yeast mixture.
  6. Stir until the the dough is moistened and all the ingredients combined.
  7. Sprinkle a light coating of flour on your hands and onto the area you intend to knead the dough on.
  8. Place the dough onto the floured area. The dough should be sticky.
  9. Knead the dough for 10 to 12 minutes. The dough should feel soft like a baby’s bottom and easily form into a ball shape.  Bread dough resting on a wooden cutting board.
  10. Sit the dough aside to rise for about an hour – or until it is double in size.
  11. Punch the dough down in the center and then shape it into whatever shape you want. I typically make it look like a log so I can place it into a glass bread pan to bake it.
  12. Allow the shaped dough to rise for another hour – or until double in size.
  13. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.  Freshly baked bread made from the flour ground using the Mockmill flour grinding mill.
  14. Slather butter on top to soften the crust, remove from the pan and allow to cool slightly before serving.
