A really nice light wheat bread, great flavor. If you prefer to make only one loaf just cut the ingredients in half. YUM!

How to Make Soft Wheat Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; stir and set aside
  2. in another large bowl, add the flours and mix until will combined
  3. Add the flour mixture to the yeast mixture stir and turn out onto a lightly floured bread, dough is slightly sticky so you may have to dust occasionally with extra flour ( I use about 1/2 cup)
  4. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place dough into a well greased bowl turn once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40-60 minutes or until doubled.
  5. Punch dough down, turn onto lightly floured board and knead lightly for about two minutes until smooth, then form into loaves. place into greased loaf pans cover , let rise until almost doubled in size about 40 minutes.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven. I place a piece of aluminum foil over the top the after 20 minutes to prevent over browning, don't cover tightly just lay it on top Bake 30-35 minutes.
  7. **** You can use regular yeast, I have not use it for this recipe but if I did I would proof the yeast in the warm water for 5-10 minutes then add the rest of the wet ingredients. You do not proof the instant yeast. also the vital wheat gluten is just something I use on occasion and it is totally optional, I think it makes a lighter loaf. You can also use regular wheat flour but I think the white wheat makes a lighter loaf. I have found that most wheat breads I make with regular wheat flour are somewhat tough in texture.
