Basic whole wheat bread^

1 cup Warm water
1 tablespoon SWEETENER
1 tablespoon Yeast
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Oil, optional
3 cups Whole wheat flour

Dissolve sweetener in water then stir in yeast. Let stand until yeast begins to bubble 5-8 minutes. Stir in oil, if using, and salt. Add 1½ cups flour. Beat vigorously for 1 minute. Add remaining flour gradually. Use only amount necessary to handle dou Variations:

For a lighter loaf, substitute ¼ cup gluten flour for ¼ cup whole wheat flour. Or use 1 cup white flour in place of 1 cup whole wheat flour.

If making a pizza crust, apple icing crust or pot pie crust. Reduce yeast to 1 teaspoon. When making one of these crusts, try using all whole hwat pastry flour instead of regula whole wheat flour. The crust will be more tender. Source: Of These Ye May Freely Eat: A Vegetarian Cookbook by JoAnn Rachor . ISBN 1-878726-02-1 Shared by Carolyn Shaw 9-95.
