Light Wheat Bread


Recipes like this are why I love baking bread. A couple of months again I shared a recipe for soft white sandwich bread which turned out great, but I think this bread may have surpassed it. I'd have to do a side by side taste test to know for sure. Whatever the case, both breads are delicious.

What you will need

2 1/2 cups (11.25 oz) unbleached high-gluten or bread flour 

1 1/2 cups (6.75 oz.) whole-wheat flour 

1 1/2 tablespoons (.75 oz.) granulated sugar or honey 

1 1/2 teaspoons (.38 oz.) salt 

3 tablespoons (1 oz.) powdered milk 

1 1/2 teaspoons (.17 oz.) instant yeast 

2 tablespoons (1 oz.) shortening or unsalted butter, at room temperature 

1 1/4 cups (10 oz.) water, at room temperature
