Whole Grain Wheat Bread
• 1/2 Cup plus 1 tablespoon brown sugar
• 2 cups warm water
• 2 packages active dry yeast
• 5-6 cups 100% White Whole Wheat Trader Joe's Flour
• 3/4 Milk
• 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
• 1/3 Olive Oil
Dissolve 1 tablespoon brown sugar in warm water in small bowl. Add yeast. Stir till dissolved. Let mixture stand. It will start foaming when yeast is working.
Place 4 cups flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and salt in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and dough hook to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 15 seconds. Continuing on Speed 2 gradually add milk, yeast mixture, and oil to flour mixture and mix about 1 1/2 minutes longer. Stop and scrape bowl if necessary.
Continuing on Speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and mix about 2 minutes, or until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on Speed 2 about 2 minutes longer.
Note: Dough may not form a ball on hook. However, as long as hook comes in contact with dough, kneading will be accomplished. Do not add more than the maximum amount of flour specified or a dry loaf will result.
Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
Punch dough down and divide in half. Place in 2 greased 8x4x2 inch baking pans. Cover. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks.
