Ingredients

  • 2 cups scalded milk
  • 1 yeast cake, dissolved in ¼ cup lukewarm water
  • ¼ cup sugar, or
  • cup molasses
  • 4⅔ cups of coarse entire wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Method

Add sweetening and salt to the milk; cool, and when luke-warm, add the dissolved yeast cake and flour; beat well, cover, and let rise to double its bulk. Beat again and turn into greased bread pans, having pans one-half full. Let rise and bake. Entire wheat bread should not quite double its bulk during last rising. This mixture may be baked in gem pans.
