Recipe Directions for Light Wheat Bread

  1. Add warm (110 degree) water to mixing bowl with yeast, honey, and molasses. Let sit 10 minutes or until yeast begins to foam.

  5. Punch down, flatten into rectangle, shape into loaf, and place in well-greased loaf pan. Cover with towel and let rise in a warm draft-free place until at least 1" crested from top of pan. (About an hour.)

  6. Pre-heat oven to 375.

  7. Bake 30-35 minutes in the lower 1/3 of the oven. Remove from pan immediately and cool on rack before slicing.
