Standard

I made a couple loaves of whole wheat bread. It’s not bad =]

 

Whole wheat bread

Ingredients:

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package rapid rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
Directions:
  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. Combine milk, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup butter, honey, salt and 2 cups wheat flour in large bowl. Mix in yeast mixture, and let rest 15 minutes. Add 3 cups bread flour, and knead until dough forms a ball. Knead dough 10 minutes. Place the dough in a buttered bowl, and turn to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic towel. Let dough rise for 45 minutes, or until almost doubled.
  3. Punch down, and divide dough in half. Roll out each half, and pound out the bubbles. Form into loaves, and place in buttered 9×5 inch bread pans. Butter the tops of the dough, and cover with towel. Let rise in a warm area until doubled; about 30 minutes.
  4. Place a small pan of water on the bottom shelf of the oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until tops are dark golden brown. Butter crusts while warm. Slice when cool.
