100% Whole Wheat Bread

Prep time 30 mins
Cook time 45 mins
Yield

2 loaves

Ingredients

  • 8 to 8 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Mazola® Vegetable Plus! Oil

How to Make It

  1. COMBINE 3-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water, honey, and oil until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.

  2. KNEAD on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover and let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.

  3. DIVIDE dough in half. Roll each half to 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place, seam sides down, in 2 greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pans. Cover.

  4. LET RISE in warm, draft-free area until doubled in size, about 30 to 60 minutes.

  5. BAKE in a preheated 375°F oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; let cool on wire racks.  (Note:  to test for doneness, internal temperature of bread should register 190°F in center of loaf.)
