    The ready to go stuff contains enhancers in spades so it can't fail like cake mixes you get in the box.

    Try this:

    1 Cup Hot Water 125F
    2T vegetable oil
    1-2T Honey
    1T Vital Gluten
    1t sea salt
    3-4 Cups Hard Wheat Flour(Whole Wheat)
    1T yeast

    Liquids into bowl first, then dry ingredients using 1/2 the flour then yeast. Mix and add the balance of flour until dough comes away from sides and bottom of bowl but use only remaining flour to get result you need. It might be less or more. Don't load too much. Dough might be a tad sticky that's how 100% whole wheat is.

    Then it's the usual rise regime-until double then divide and shape and rise again then bake 350F 30 minutes or until 190F internal.

    Fresh out of the oven. Some whole wheat bread.
    Still too warm to cut but, oh boy, does it ever smell delicious!

    I have pretty much stopped experimenting now..

    The Dutch Oven Loaf is down pat and the Wife and I both love it with Amish Butter the only thing I have adjusted is the amount of Flour to start with so it makes the perfect sized loaf in the Cast Iron DO

    Have played with adding a tsp of Baking Powder and using fast rise vs regular rise yeast, lately I am using local Flours and we have enjoyed that..

    But the basic no kneed/little kneed recipes are working rather well for us

    Mmmm...looking good...i've been meaning to get a dutch oven for a while!

    I also started baking bread a few months ago...I dont like the stuff I find in the market...so I decided I can spare a half hour every 2days to bake some.
    It's fun and tasty at the same time.
    Plus...the wife and kid love it!
