Recipe also works well in my bread machine. Make rolls by putting the dough cycle on bread machine, divide into rolls, cover with damp towel and put in warm place for final rising. Dough should double in size. Cut baking time to 15 - 20 minutes.


3 cups Whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Yeast
3/4 cup 2% low-fat milk
1/4 cup Water
2 tablespoons Canola oil
3 tablespoons Honey
1 each Egg; lightly beaten

Original recipe makes 12



In large bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, salt and undissolved yeast. In small saucepan heat milk, water, vegetable oil and honey until very warm (125F). Stir warm liquids into dry ingredients. Stir in eggs; blend well. Mix in enough remaining flour to make soft dough that begins to come away from sides of bowl and can be handled. Texture may be crumbly. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.

Roll dough (or stretch and pat) to 12- ? 8-inch rectangle. Roll up from short side as for jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Place, seam side down, in greased 9- ? 5-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Bake in 350F oven for 40 minutes or until done. Remove from pan to wire rack to cool.

Really enjoy this bread-my whole family eats it, including a toddler and a picky husband. Works well in my bread machine. I put all the wet ingredients in first, then the flour, the salt around the edge and the yeast in a well on top, per my machine's instructions. I only use the dough setting, because it doesn't rise enough in the machine. I take it out for the final rise and bake it in my oven. Because of the milk and egg, I keep this bread in the fridge. Nice to have a 100% whole wheat recipe!
