Whole Wheat Bread

From the Recipe Shoebox.

The ingredients:
2-1/4 cups hot water (120-130°)
2 Tbs. yeast
1/3 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 Tbs. salt
1/3 cup oil
3-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (for best results, I recommend using regular whole wheat flour, NOT white whole wheat)
3-1/2 cups white flour

DIRECTIONS:  Dissolve yeast in half cup of water for about 5 minutes, then add powdered milk, sugar, molasses, salt, oil, and  3 cups white flour. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes.  Add  remaining flour. Put dough in greased bowl.

Cover and allow to rise until double (about an hour). Punch down, divide in half, form loaves, and place in pans. Allow to rise until double. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes. Makes 2 loaves ( I usually make 3 smaller loaves).
