Easy Whole Wheat Bread

 1 ¾ - 2 cups warm water (100 degrees)

1 teaspoon yeast

¼ cup light brown sugar, divided

4 cups whole wheat flour (can use whole wheat white flour)

1 teaspoon salt


In 2/3 cup of the warm water, mix 1 tablespoon brown sugar and the yeast.  Allow to sit in a warm spot for 10 – 15 minutes to allow yeast to react.


In large bowl, mix remaining brown sugar (3 tablespoons), flour and salt together.


Add yeast mixture and 1 ¼ cups warm water, stir together, adding more water if necessary to wet flour mixture, and make it hold together.


Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, spread flour mixture evenly in pan.  Cover with plastic wrap or a towel, place in a warm spot for 30 – 60 minutes or until dough has doubled in size.


Place in preheated 400 degree oven for 35 - 40 minutes, or until it sounds hollow when tapped on.


Let sit in pan for 10 minutes, remove to wire rack to cool.
