easy wheat bread

Just a slight variation on the easy white bread. It probably should have just made 1 big loaf, but 2 little loaves were fun and made cute little sandwiches.

4 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup very warm water
1 tbsp sugar
2 cups wheat flour
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup bread flour

Combine yeast, water, and sugar. Allow to sit 5 minutes or until yeast blooms.

In the bowl of a mixer, combine yeast mixture, butter, salt, and whole wheat flour. Mix on low speed for 1 minute. Mix in bread flour 1/4 cup at a time. Mix 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Punch down dough and form into 2 loaves.

Grease 2 bread pans. Place loaves in, seam side down. Allow to rise 40-45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450. Bake for 10 minutes. Lower heat to 350 and bake 30 minutes more or until brown and botttom sounds hollow when tapped.

Remove loaves from pan. Place on rack and let cool completely.
