Before toasting

From http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-whole-wheat-bread/ (Adjusted recipe to make 1 loaf instead of three…)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 3 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, and 1/8 cup brown sugar.
  2. Add 2 cups white bread flour, and stir to combine.
  3. Let set for 30 minutes, or until big and bubbly.
  4. Mix in 3 teaspoons melted butter, 1/8 cup brown sugar, and salt. Stir in 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
  5. Flour a flat surface and knead with whole wheat flour until not real sticky – just pulling away from the counter, but still sticky to touch. If the dough is too dry, add a few drops of water.
  6. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough.
  7. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  8. Punch down and place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans, and allow to rise until dough has topped the pans by one inch.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes.
  10. Lightly brush the tops of loaves with 2 teaspoons melted butter or margarine when done to prevent crust from getting hard. Cool completely.
