Cost Per Serving:

Ingredients: 
  • Nonstick cooking spray or spread
  • 1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) nonfat milk, lukewarm (100-110°F)
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) orange or apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 packet instant yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose white flour
     
Instructions: 
  1. Grease the sides and bottom of an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan with cooking spray or spread.
  2. Combine the lukewarm nonfat milk, juice, and honey in a large bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients. Beat vigorously for 3 minutes. Dough will be very thick. Scoop the dough into prepared pan. Cover the pan with a clean towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 45-75 minutes, until almost double. Time varies according to room temperature.
  4. Preheat oven to 350º F when dough is almost doubled.
  5. Remove towel and bake bread for about 30 minutes. Dough will pull away from sides of pan when bread is done. Let bread cool 30 minutes before slicing.


Options:

  • Make 2 smaller loaves using half sized loaf pans. Bake for 23-27 minutes.
  • Make herb dinner rolls. Mix 4 teaspoons of dried herbs such as oregano, parsley, basil, rosemary,  or thyme into the batter. Use muffin tins and bake 15 minutes.
  • Make 100% whole wheat bread. Use 3 cups whole wheat flour instead of white and wheat flour and 3 tablespoons molasses instead of honey.


 

Tips: 
  • Heat cold milk in microwave for 45-60 seconds for lukewarm temperature. Test a drop on the inside of your wrist. It should feel very warm but not hot.
  • Keep whole wheat flour in refrigerator or freezer for storage. Bring flour to room temperature to make bread.
  • Instant yeast is also called fast rising, rapid rise, quick rise, and bread machine yeast.
  • 1 packet yeast = 2 1/4 teaspoons
