This recipe came from my grandma. We found it in her recipe box when we were going through her things after she died. Not only will I cherish that recipe card, I will cherish this recipe. I think of her every time I make it.
The only thing that I changed about it was to add the dough enhancer.
Whole Wheat Bread
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 2 cups warm water (105-1115 degrees)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup oil
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 3-3 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour
- 1 tablespoon dough enhancer
Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in sugar, eggs, oil, salt, dough enhancer, and whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic about 8 minutes. ( I use my kitchen aid stand mixer) Place in a greased bowl and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down, divide in half. Form into loaves. Place in greased pan and let rise until doubled. About 40 minutes. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
Makes 2 loaves.
*You can also use only all purpose flour for a white bread.
