Directions

  1. Mix yeast, sugar and 1/2 cup water. Leave 10 minutes.
  2. In large bowl mix egg, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and melted butter. Stir. Add yeast mixture and 2 cups warm/hot water and stir.
  3. Add 4 cups whole wheat flour and 4 cups white flour (3 at first).
  4. Knead for 10 minutes. Make sure dough is soft - but not sticky. If it is sticky - add more flour - a little at a time.

  6. Punch dough down. Knead for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Cut and form into loaves. Grease pans really good.
