Honey Wheat Bread

Pin It

This weekend, Mai and I made home made butter with fresh cow's milk.  The butter turned out beautiful but we quickly discovered we needed some fresh baked bread to go with it!  

Here are the ingredients:

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
3/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup warm milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups white flour
2 cup whole wheat flour

In your mixer, add the warm water and yeast.  Let that sit a few minutes to let the yeast activate.  You will know when the yeast is active because it will bubble and/or foam. 

Once the yeast is active, add the salt, sugar, milk, honey and white flour.  Mix together, adding the remaining flour a little at a time.

The dough will form on the dough hook.  When it balls up, the dough is ready.  Cover with a clean towel and let it rise in a warm spot - about 1 hour.

Punch the dough down and let it rise again-another hour.

Punch down again and put into a loaf pan, sprayed with PAM.  Let it rise another 20 min or so. 

Brush with melted butter and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
