  • 8 to 8-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/3 cups milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup corn oil


  1. Combine 3-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat milk, water, honey and oil until very warm (120 to 130F). Gradually add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  2. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place seam sides down, in 2 greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch loaf pans. Cover.
  4. Let rise in warm, draft-free area until doubled in size, about 30 to 60 minutes.
  5. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; let cool on wire racks. (Note to test for doneness, internal temperature of bread should register 190F in center of loaf.)
  6. Recipe Note: if using coarse ground flour, you may need to use less flour overall.
