100% Whole Wheat Bread with Wheat Bran


High in fiber, this bread is great for sandwiches.

Easy Serves
SKILL LEVEL 2 loaves
8 to 8-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
2-1/2 teaspoons salt
2-2/3 cups water
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Mazola® Corn, Canola OR Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup wheat bran

Combine 3-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat water, milk, honey and oil until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour and wheat bran; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.

Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half. Roll each half to 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place, seam sides down, in 2 greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 60 minutes.

Bake in preheated 375oF oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; let cool on wire racks. (Note: to test for doneness, internal temperature of bread should register 190oF in center of loaf.)

Review from Byron
First try of this recipe and it turned out great. A real high riser. I only made 1/2 recipe and I added 1 egg for some added protein. Measured 1 egg + water to equal the original 1 1/3 cups water only. Love these single knead recipes.
