Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose, plus extra for kneading)
  • 1 cup flour (whole wheat)
  • 3 tablespoons milk (powdered)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast (rapid rise)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water (warm, 120 to 130 degrees F)
  • flour (as needed, extra, for kneading)

Directions

1. Combine flour, whole wheat flour, yeast, sugar, salt and powdered milk in a one gallon resealable freezer bag. Squeeze upper part of bag to force out air and seal bag. Shake and work bag with fingers to blend ingredients.

4. Shape dough on greased baking sheet or put into a 4 inch x 8 inch greased loaf pan. Cover with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in bulk.

5. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. (May take between 25 and 45 minutes to bake).

6. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack or clean dish towel.
