Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons snipped fresh or dried chives
  • 4 teaspoons snipped fresh dill or 1-1/2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the whole wheat flour, sugar, chives, dill, shortening, salt and 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into two loaves. Place in 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans that have been coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
