  1. Whisk water, milk, brown sugar, honey, and 1/4 cup vegetable oil together in a bowl. Add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt; stir until dough holds together. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoon vegetable oil into a bowl. Place dough into the bowl and turn to evenly coat with oil. Allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Punch dough and knead 4 to 5 times. Divide dough in half and form each half into a loaf. Place loaves into 9x5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise until dough is about 1 inch above the pan, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly before slicing.

Hubs really enjoyed this, and since he's not a fan of wheat bread, this means this definitely is saved in the recipe box. I thought it had a nice light wheat bread flavor, but it did need more flour. I ended up using about 7 cups total of flour (3 wheat, 4 AP) and had to add back in about 1/2 c of water, so I would try next time with 6 1/2 c of flour. The flour to water ratio is off; if you tried as written, you'd end up with a soupy bread. Reading the recipe, though, reminds me when my mother gave me her pizza dough recipe. She was a bit more off, though, telling me to add flour as needed without even giving me measurements. On the bright side, those are recipes for people who like to keep adding flour until they get the right consistency. Inexperienced bread makers might like a little more guidance, but that's why they have reviews on here. ;) Thanks for the recipe!

I think you need to adjust the dry and wet ingredients. Using what you listed, the consistency of my dough was that of muffin batter. I had to add at least another cup and a half of both AP and WW flour combined. The dough is in it's first proof, so I'll update when it's finished. Update: The finished product came out a little too soft for my preference. It wasn't really able to stand up to spreadable butter. Even though it wasn't my favorite recipe, it was still pretty tasty.
