Light Wheat No-Knead Bread Loaf Recipe

Light Wheat Loaf No-Knead Bread

This recipe will make a large sized light wheat sandwich loaf that is a great tasting and a great texture for sandwich bread. The crust is soft like a sandwich bread, not as crisp as traditional no-knead bread. It is so easy to make and with little time invested (unless you count the 12+ hours of rising). I believe anyone could make this no-knead light wheat bread with great results, even without a kitchen mixer or any other special equipment.

Light Wheat Sandwich Loaf No-Knead Bread Recipe


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour (preferably fresh ground for better taste)
    wondermill grain mill
    WonderMill Grain Mill
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey (optional)
  • 1 3/4 cups water


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients (white flour, wheat flour, yeast, salt) in the large bowl (3 quart or larger) and stir with a mixing spoon for about 15 seconds or more.
  2. Combine water and honey in a separate bowl and stir till honey is dissolved into the water.
  3. Add water honey mix to the dry ingredients bowl and stir for about 3 minutes until the flour is mostly stuck to the dough (it won’t look that good but that doesn’t matter).
  4. Cover the top of the bowl loosely with plastic wrap.
  5. Let sit on counter top for about 12 to 18 hours (I ussually do this for about 13 hours), the dough will look all bubbly on the top.
  6. Generously sprinkle flour (wheat or white flour) the top of your clean counter top or a cutting board (don’t worry about using too much flour, it won’t hurt it).
  7. Slowly pour the dough from the bowl on to the floured surface, using the silicone spatula to help it peal off the sides of the bowl.
  8. Sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough and rub your hands together with flour.
  9. With you hands, gently stretch the dough out to a rectangle shape.
  10. Roll up the dough from one end to the other.
  11. Place the dough into a lightly greased bread pan (seem side down).
  12. Let dough rise till it is a bit above the top of the bread pan (about double in size or 1.5 to 2 hours).
  13. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  14. Place bread in the oven for 40 minutes to 45 minutes.
  15. Remove from oven and let it cool on a cooling rack or your counter top.


This light wheat bread is so cheap and simple to make that there is no reason to buy wheat bread from the store anymore. I just love light wheat bread for sandwiches, toast and jam, and toast and butter. The good thing about wheat bread is that it makes you fill fuller faster and longer.

    These no-knead recipes are great! I tried the potato and the light wheat recipes, and was very pleased with the results…light, fluffy, tasty, and with a wonderfully crispy crust. The breads slices easily…even very thin slices hold together well. The process was easy, and the results, wonderful. I will continue to make them now, and into the future. Thank you so much.
