Gifts in a Jar: One Hour Whole Wheat Bread Mix. Whole wheat bread mix in a jar for gift giving. Bread is ready in one hour from start to finish.
Combine ingredients and place in a 1 quart mason jar (24-28 ounce jars are actually better if you have them). Decorate jar and add instructions.
Be sure to include a copy of the baking instructions with each jar. (printable version here)
Combine contents of the jar with 1 1/2 cups warm water (about 100 degrees) and 1 teaspoon of honey or molasses. Stir to combine. Dough should stick to the spoon slightly, if it does not add a little more water.
Put dough in an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 3 bread pan and spread evenly.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the bread pan near the oven and cover with a towel for 20-30 minutes until it has risen over the top of the pan.
Bake for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes then remove loaf from pan.
