Whole Wheat Braids Recipe

There's nothing like fresh bread to complete a meal. I've had very good results with this recipe. Braiding the dough makes a pretty presentation.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 40 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 3 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, eggs, oil, salt and whole wheat flour; beat until smooth. Add enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Divide into nine pieces; shape each piece into a 14-in. x rope and braid three ropes together. Place in three greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves.

"Although I have made bread for many years this is my first attempt at whole wheat bread. Easy, easy, easy recipe! And it turned out delicious. The only thing I did different was not bake it as long as stated. My 3 loaves were done in 35 minutes. Perfect! I will be making this again and again."
