Homemade Wheat Bread

This has become one of my favorite wheat bread recipes. I originally found it on Pinterest (  It goes together easily and always comes out very well. 

1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon milk
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons oil
2 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoons salt
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (or one small package of yeast)
1 1/2 cups white flour
1 1/2 cups wheat flour

Mix the water, milk, brown sugar, oil, honey, and salt. Add the yeast to the top of the mixture. Stir in the white and wheat flour. 

Mix for about 10 minutes with the hook attachment on the mixer, or knead with your hands if you don't have a mixer. (You will need more flour if you use your hands.) 

Place in a greased bowl. Spread the top of the dough with oil. Cover the bowl with a towel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled. (About 40 minutes)

Punch the dough down. Place the dough in a greased loaf pan. 

Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes, or until doubled. 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool. (This bread is best warm.)
