Aunt Ruby's Whole Wheat Bread



Introduction

This recipe is one of the best bread recipes I have ever tried! It is my Aunt Ruby's recipe that she has made for years and years. I had to figure out on my scale what 7/8 of a pound was, and a pound, too. It worked perfectly, though! This recipe is one of the best bread recipes I have ever tried!

Ingredients

    2 cups luke warm water
    1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
    2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
    2 Tbsp. honey
    2 tsp. salt
    1/4 cup oil (I used Canola)
    7/8 pound whole wheat flour (I used my food scale and it worked great)
    1 pound all-purpose flour

Directions

1. Dissolve yeast and a pinch of the sugar in the warm water in large bowl (about 5 or 6 minutes).
2. Weigh out the two flours--keeping them separate and set aside.
3. When yeast is dissolved, add rest of sugar, salt, oil and honey. (Tip: Measure and add the oil in the tablespoon first and then measure the honey. The honey will just slip out of the spoon.)
4. Add the whole wheat flour and mix well.
5. Add most of the white flour, reserving some for kneading. This amount of the flour is the correct amount for the bread--do not add any more.
6. When kneaded, put it in a large greased bowl--first putting the smooth top on the bottom of bowl to grease the top.
7. Turn over with greased side up and cover with a towel and let rise for about an hour.
8. Make into two loaves. Place seam side down in greased pans.
9. Let dough rise until it is 2 inches above the top of the pan.
10. Bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes.
