This yeast bread fixes up in a snap. It also slices well and freezes well. It is especially good for toast in the morning. Make it first for hot bread with dinner and keep the rest in the refrigerator or freezer for future meals.


3 cups flour
2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package dry yeast
 2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup brown sugar
 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3 cups whole wheat flour

Mix together flour, warm water, sugar, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat until very smooth. cover and let rise in warm place until light and bubbly, about 20 to 30 minutes.

Mix hot water with brown sugar and melted butter. Cool to lukewarm. Add to first mixture and add whole wheat flour. Mix until smooth, but do not knead. Place dough in 2 greased loaf pans and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes. Loaves are done when they sound hollow when tapped.

Cool pans on wire rack 10 minutes. Carefully remove loaves to rack to finish cooling. Brush tops of loaves with melted butter.

It is 3 cups white flour and 3 cups whole wheat flour. It is a gooey batter but there is no need to add extra flour on a humid day as one would for a kneaded bread.

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
