How to Make It

  1. Dissolve yeast and warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours in a bowl. Add 1 cup flour mixture, wheat germ, honey, and salt to yeast mixture. Stir until blended. Gradually add remaining flour mixture.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 6 to 8 minutes). Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, dough has risen enough.)

  4. Punch dough down; place on a lightly floured surface. Knead about 10 times, and roll into a 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Starting at short side, roll up jelly roll fashion to form a loaf. Place loaf, seam side down, in an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

  5. Preheat oven to 375°.

  6. Bake at 375° for 35 to 40 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack.
