Number of Servings: 14


    1.5 cups + 2 tbs water (omit 2 tbs if humid)
    2 tbs extra light olive oil
    2 tbs splenda for baking sugar blend
    1.5 tsp salt
    2.5 cups White Whole Wheat flour
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    2 teaspoons instant (rapid-rise) yeast
    1 tbs vital wheat gluten


Combine all the ingredients, and mix and knead by hand, mixer, or bread machine until you have made a fairly stiff (but not dry) dough. Place dough into a lightly greased bowl, and allow it to rise for 60 to 90 minutes, until it's expanded a bit. It won't have doubled in size, but should feel puffy when you squeeze it.

Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan. Gently shape the dough into a smooth log, there's no need to punch it down, just stretch and round it to fit into the pan. Place it in the pan, smooth side up, cover the pan, and allow the loaf to rise for about 30 to 45 minutes, till it crowns over the rim of the pan by an inch or so. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 375.

Bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes, until the center registers 190 on an instant read thermometer. Remove it from the oven, and turn it out onto a rack to cool. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

Yield 1 loaf (nutritional information figured for 14 slices per loaf)

  • This is good, but mine did not rise in the pan as high as you said. did all the other rises just fine. I would not call it sandwich bread -- it is denser,more compact. I have tried twice now. Powdered milk listed in nut stats but not in recipe ingredients?
