Original recipe yields 24 servings (3 small round loaves or 2 large loaves)

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Stir all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, instant yeast, and salt together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Whisk water and oil together in a cup; pour into flour mixture. Mix on low speed until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl into a ball.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead just until dough is smooth, about 1 minute. Divide and shape dough into 3 balls for small loaves or 2 balls for larger loaves. Dust loaves with flour and place onto a baking sheet; cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Slash an "X" about 1/4-inch deep in tops of loaves with a sharp knife.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For extra depth, substitute 1/2 cup whole wheat for 1/2 cup quick oats. The number of servings is dependent upon the thickness of the slices. I recommend making 3 loaves the first time.

The water measurement is way too much. By the time I added more flour, it is difficult to say what the original flavor should have been. If I make it again, I will cut the water by at least a ...

I ended up having to add more flour. It tasted a little bland, so I will be adding either honey or molasses next time.

Great texture and taste. It could be user error but I did have to add 1 1/4 cups more flour to make it come together and leave the sides of the pan, user error maybe? I made two changes, I added...

I had to add flour as well to get it to come together. But it turned out great, wonderful soft texture and great flavor

It came out OK, the flavor is very delicate. Next time I will try adding more things to give it a more robust taste. OMG I was dumping in so much extra flour it was truly distressing. I think...

Great taste as is, but agree with other reviewers had to add some more flour than listed.

The recipe calls for far too much water. Added extra flour but the bread still didn't turn out well. I've had much better luck with other recipes.

We loved the result, but had to add an additional cup of whole wheat flour to keep it from being too moist to knead well. We're on our fourth batch now. It is especially delicious when the slice...
