Heat milk until lukewarm; add yeast. IF compressed yeast is used allow to stand 5 minutes; if dry yeast is used allow to stand 30 minutes. Add sugar, salt, and shortening. Add unsifted whole wheat flour, a little at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add sufficient sifted white flour to make dough just stiff enough to knead. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Cover with a damp cloth, set in a warm place, and allow dough to rise until double in bulk. (If dry yeast is used allow dough to rise overnight in a warm place. ) Work down and form into 3 loaves. Place in well-oiled bread pans. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Bake in hot oven (425 F) about 45 minutes. 3 small loaves.
