2 packages rapid rise yeast

2 cups warm water (105-115 degrees f.)

1 tablespoon white sugar


2 teaspoons salt

1/3 cup melted butter, cooled

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon molasses

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon Watkins Vanilla

3 cups whole wheat flour (Cedar Circle)

3 - 4 cups unbleached white flour

Egg wash: 1 whole egg with 1 tablespoon tepid water


Dissolve yeast in warm water, add white sugar and let proof ten

Whisk in the Acorn flour, salt, melted butter, brown sugar,
molasses, honey, vanilla and whole wheat flour until you have a
smooth batter:

Add unbleached white flour, cup by cup, until you can turn it
out from bowl and knead 10 minutes. Put inlightly buttered
bowl, cover with plastic wrap and towel, and let rise about 60-
80 minutes, until your thumb inserted remains. If it springs back,
it kneads more rising time. Once risen, punch down, let rest 10
minutes and form into two round braided loaves or loaf pans.
Preheat oven to 375. Let rise another 30 minutes, until double
in bulk. Brush with egg wash and bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes,
until it sounds hollow when tapped.

Enjoy and it is really good toasted, too!
