Light Wheat Bread Recipe

I bake twice a week because my family loves it. But I wanted a simple, foolproof recipe. After experimenting with several, I came up with this light-colored wheat bread, and my husband and children always want more. -Holly Shirk, Grantville, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, salt and yeast. In a saucepan, heat water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to the dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Divide dough in half; shape into loaves. Place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
  4. Remove from the refrigerator; let stand in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
Editor's Note: To bake without refrigeration, cover dough and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake as directed.
