Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Step 1

Dissolve yeast in 2/3 c water while your milk is cooling. Dissolve 1 cup sugar in the hot milk. Stir all ingredients in large bowl, turn out and knead about 5 minutes, adding flour if needed. Knead about 5 minutes. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Knead down and shape into 6 loaves, let rise until doubled in pans. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 40 minutes. Turn out on wire rack and let cool to cold before slicing, if you can.

NOTE: Raisins and/or walnuts can be added for a change.

Also this bread freezes well.
