2 8-inch loaves


  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal, or as needed

  • 3 cups unbleached bread flour, divided

  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour, divided

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups milk

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Grease 2 loaf pans with butter; coat bottoms and sides with 1 tablespoon cornmeal.

  2. Mix 1 1/2 cup bread flour, 1 1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour, yeast, and baking soda together in a large bowl.

  3. Combine milk, water, sugar, and salt in a saucepan over low heat; heat until mixture registers 125 degrees F (52 degrees C) on a thermometer, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir warm milk mixture into the flour mixture; add remaining 1 1/2 cup bread flour and 1 1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour. Mix until dough comes together.

  5. Divide dough in half; place 1 piece in each loaf pan. Sprinkle remaining cornmeal on top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  7. Bake loaves in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack and cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute whole wheat flour for the white whole wheat if desired.
