Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

5 teaspoons
2 1/4 cups
1/3 cup
1/4 cup
3 teaspoons
3 cups
3 1/2 to 4 cups
dry active yeast
warm water
whole wheat flour

Oven Temp: 375°
Recipe Cooking Time: 40 – 45 minutes
Pan Type: 2 – 9 x 5" loaf pans

Whole Wheat Bread Directions

Preheat Oven.

Heat the water to warm, (should register 120°F when tested with a candy thermometer). Place the warm water into a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast to the water and stir until it dissolves. Add the honey, shortening and salt. Mix well with the mixer on low speed. Add the whole wheat flour to the water mixture. Beat with mixer until smooth. Add the all-purpose flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough is easy to work with. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of remaining flour to make dough smooth and no longer sticky. Place the kneaded dough into a greased bowl. Turn the dough over one time to grease the top. Cover dough with a clean towel. Let rise in warm place until it doubles in bulk, takes 1 – 1 1/2 hours. Poke dough with two fingers. Cut whole wheat bread dough in half. Roll each half of the dough and shape into two loaves. Place shaped loaves into greased loaf pans. Place the seem side down into the pan. Cover with a clean towel and let rise until whole wheat bread dough doubles in bulk, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Bake whole wheat bread in a preheated oven for allotted time or until deep golden brown. When the bread loaf sounds hollow when tapped with fingers, it's done. Place onto wire racks to cool.

Recipe Yields: 2 loaves

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
