Ingredients

  • 1-1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 129 calories, 1 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 2 mg cholesterol, 125 mg sodium, 27 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 4 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1-1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the brown sugar, butter, salt, whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down and turn onto a floured surface; shape into a loaf. Place in a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spay. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

I have found my new favorite breakfast food. This bread made into toast and spread with Nutella! Delicious!! I'll be making several loaves at a time and freezing them from now on!

This is THE recipe I use. Everyone who I've given some to has asked for the recipe. I use extra wheat flour and have always used white bread flour.

My whole family loves this bread! I have been making it every few days just so we have it on hand. I need to figure out how to make enough for two loaves; it's that good!
