Recipe Time

Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 45 Minutes


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


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.


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


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.


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


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.)
