Whole Wheat Bread

Soften 1 package dry yeast in 2 cups warm water.


  • 6 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups flour (use 2 cups white unbleached, 2 cups whole wheat)

Beat the above on low speed with electric mixer until smooth. Keep in warm place until bubbly (about an hour). In separate bowl, combine:

  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. margarine or shortening

Add this to yeast/flour mixture. Add another 4 cups flour (2 cups unbleached, 2 cups whole wheat). Mix until smooth. Turn out dough on floured surface. Knead smooth and place in warm place, covered, in oiled bowl. Let sit for 1-1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Knead 2-3 times and cut in half. Shape each pieces in ball; let rest 10 minutes. Roll out rectangle and shape 2 loaves. Grease pans. Let rise 1 hour in warm place. Bake at 375 degrees F until golden brown, about 40-50 minutes.
