Just received 12/30/08 from "Granny" in the Baking Circle. She says, "This loaf is a nice, soft sandwich bread and makes excellent toast.."

1 2/3 cups water
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups bread flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons instant yeast

Place all ingredients in bowl of stand mixer. Mix then knead dough until it forms a ball on the hook and there is just a little dough in the bottom of the bowl. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise until double.

Divide dough in half and place each half in a greased loaf pan. Cover and let rise again until loaf has crowned about 1" over top of pan.

Bake in preheated 375F oven for about 35 minutes till golden. Temperature of bread should be 190 degrees when measured with an instant-read thermometer. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack. Makes 2 loaves.
