     Whole Wheat Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp shortening
2 tsp salt
1 pkg dry yeast
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
4 1/2 cups white flour

Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil, mix it with the milk, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, and let cool to lukewarm. In a separate container, measure 1/2 cup warm water, stir in the yeast and let it stand for 5 minutes to dissolve. Add the dissolved yeast and the mixed whole wheat and white flour to the first mixture. Beat thoroughly, then turn out onto a lightly flour board, adding enough flour so that the dough handles easily. Knead for a few minutes and let rest for 10 minutes. Add as much of the remaining flour as necessary to keep the dough from being sticky. Resume kneading for 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm spot until double in bulk. Punch down and shape into two loaves. Place in a greased loaf pans, cover, and let rise again untilalmost double in bulk. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake bread for about 45 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on racks.
