Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

Another recipe from an old spiral bound cookbook. Easy and it is made with half wheat flour.

2 cups warm water
2pkgs active dry yeast
2T sugar
2 tsp salt
2T soft butter
4 1/4 cups sifted flour (combine 2 1/4 cups white flour with 2cups whole wheat flour)

Sprinkle yeast over water in a large bowl of an electric mixer.
Let stand a few minutes, then stir to dissolve yeast.
Add sugar, salt, butter, and 3 cups flour. Beat at low speed until blended.
At medium speed, beat until smooth, 2 minutes. Scrape bowl and beaters.
With a wooden spoon, gradually beat in the rest of the flour. Cover bowl with a sheet of waxed paper and a towel.
Let rise in a warm place 45 minutes, or until light and bubbly and doubled in bulk.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 2 qt casserole dish.
With a wooden spoon, stir down the batter. Beat vigorously about 25 strokes. Turn into greased casserole. Bake for 55 minutes, or until nicely browned. Turn out onto a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf
