1cupwarm milkabout 100 degrees. This should feel slightly warm to the touch
2 1/2teaspoonsactive dry yeast
1tablespoonoreganoyou can use fresh if you have it available, I used dry.
1tablespoonbasilsame as above.
1teaspoongarlic powderyou can use fresh minced garlic if you prefer.
1 3/4cupwhole wheat flourI used a hard white wheat.
2cupsall purpose flour
Active yeast in warm milk. To do this, add yeast to warm milk and mix lightly. Let this sit for several minutes until the yeast starts to "bubble" and get frothy. Next, add all ingredients to the stand mixer. Mix on medium speed. If needed add more flour. Remember though, you want your dough to be slightly tacky. Whole grain breads absorb a lot of moisture. Cover bowl and allow dough to rise until doubled. Mine took about 40 minutes. This will vary depending on how warm your dough is and how warm the environment is.Once it is risen, form how you choose. I just did a standard roll with these, but there are plenty of variations to choose from. If you prefer, bake it into a loaf too. I love this as a braided bread. Cover and allow to rise again until doubled. I have a proof setting on my oven, if you do as well, use this. While it is rising, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush with an egg wash. I make my egg wash with one egg and 2 tablespoons milk, mixed well.Bake until tops are golden brown. Next, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!!
