Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Bread

1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
3 c warm water
3 pkg active dry yeast
4 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c wheat bran
2 c white flour
1 1/8 c instant nonfat dry milk
1 tsp salt
3/4 c Forti-Flax Ground Flax Seed
1/4 c Smart Balance Oil

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Bread

  1. Dissolve 1.5 tbsp brown sugar in warm water in a small bowl. Add yeast and let mixture stand.

  2. Place 4.5 c whole flour, 1.5 c wheat bran, 1 1/8 c dry instant milk, .5 c brown sugar, and 3 tsp salt into mixer bowl. Attach bowl and dough hook to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix ~ 15 seconds. Continuing on Speed 2, gradually add yeast mixture, 3/4 c ground flax, and 1/4 c oil to flour mixture and mix ~ 1.5 minutes longer. Stop and scrape bowl as necessary.

  3. Continuing on Speed 2, add remaining 2-3 cups of white flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and mix about 2 minutes or until dough ball starts to clean sides of bowl. Knead on Speed 2 about 2 minutes longer.

  4. ***NOTE: Do not add more than the maximum amount of flour specified or a dry loaf will result.

  5. Place dough in greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hr, or until doubled in bulk.

  6. Punch dough down and divide into 3 equal pieces. Form into loaves.

  7. To form into loaves, roll each piece, on a slightly floured surface, into a rectangle about 9 x 14 inches. Use a rolling pin or glass to smooth dough and remove gas bubbles. Then, start rolling from the short end, tightly. Pinch dough to seal seam. Pinch ends and turn under. Place the seam side down, into a greased loaf pan. Cover. ***Take 1 loaf in a pan here, and place in two freezer zipper bags.

  8. Let the 2 remaining loaves rise in a warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.

  9. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 min. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F and bake 15-20 min. longer. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks.
