Whole Wheat Bread Recipe From Taste of Home


2 Tbsp. active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110F to 115F)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
4 1/2 to 5 cups bread flour (she added two cups of whole wheat flour to the dough and 1 tablespoon of vital wheat gluten.)
1 tsp. cornmeal


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the salt, sugar and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; kneed until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into 12-inch-long loaves.
  4. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cornmeal. With a sharp knife, make four shallow slashes across the top of each loaf. Bake at 450F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Makes two loaves. Serving size: about 8.
