Steve’s Whole Wheat Bread
Who says whole wheat bread has to be dense, dry, and tasteless? Steve’s homestyle wheat bread is proof that wonderful flavor, texture, and aroma are all possible when you enjoy this easy-to-make bread.
Step 1: In medium mixing bowl, combine 1 tablespoon instant yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 cup hot water. Let the yeast activate until foamy then add 3 cups bread mix. Mix for 10 minutes in an electric mixer with dough hook, or knead by hand for 15 minutes. Allow dough to rise until doubled in size.
Step 2: Form dough into loaf and place in a greased 9”x5” bread pan. Let dough rise in a warm moist area until dough has doubled in size.
Step 3: Bake in a preheated oven at 375˚ F for 18–22 minutes. Turn out of pan, cover with a towel, and cool before slicing.
Cooking Hints: Your oven can be used to help dough rise. Warm oven to 100˚ F then turn oven off. Add humidity by putting a bowl of hot water alongside the bread loaf; let both sit in oven for 45 minutes. Thump top of loaf when baking is finished. A hollow sound indicates a properly baked loaf. Bread should have golden brown sidewalls and bottom when baking. Sidewalls should be firm and not collapse.
