This recipe takes a lot less time to prepare than other bread recipes.
  • 3 cups lukewarm water
  • 1½ tablespoons yeast
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar or honey
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 2½ tsp. salt
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose or bread flour
  • 4 to 6 cups white whole wheat flour
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let the yeast sit for 10 minutes. Add the oil, salt, white flour, and 4 cups of the wheat flour.
  2. Knead all ingredients for 6-8 minutes, adding additional wheat flour in small amounts as needed. The dough should be smooth, elastic, and slightly sticky, pulling away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Cover it , and let it rise until doubled. This should only take about 25 minutes.
  4. Punch it down, and form into 2 loaves (cut dough in half, roll into a rectangle, roll up jelly roll style and tuck ends under). Place the loaves into 2 greased 9" bread pans, cover again, and let rise until the bread is a little smaller than the size you want the final product to be. While the loaves rise, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. When the loaves have fully raised, bake them for 25 minutes. Remove the loaves from the pans onto a cooling rack. Let cool for 30 minutes to an hour.
Great tip: Don't cut the bread before cooling or it will fall apart.
