  • Yield: 2 loaves



  1. Beat 3 cups whole wheat flour, dry milk powder, salt, and yeast at low speed with a heavy-duty electric mixer until combined.
  2. Bring 2 cups water to a boil over medium heat; add honey and butter, stirring until butter melts.
  3. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 cup cold water (mixture will register about 120 °F)
  4. Add honey mixture to flour mixture, beating at low speed 1 minute.
  5. Increase speed to medium, and beat 2 more minutes.
  6. Gradually add remaining wheat flour and enough all-purpose flour to make a soft dough.
  7. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes).
  8. Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  9. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 °F), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
  10. Punch dough down, and divide into 2 equal portions.
  11. Roll each portion into a 15- x 10-inch rectangle.
  12. Roll each up jellyroll fashion, beginning with short end.
  13. Fold ends under, and place each, seam side down, in a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan.
  14. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 °F), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
  15. Bake at 375 °F for 40 to 45 minutes, shielding with aluminum foil after 25 minutes to prevent excessive browning.
  16. Note: equal amounts of whole wheat and all-purpose flour may be used.
