Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machine

This is my 'all-time" favorite wheat bread recipe.  Delicious!

2 1/2 tsp. fast rise yeast
3 cups whole wheat flour (milled from hard white wheat)*
1/3 cup gluten flour (or up to 1/2 cup)
2 rounded tsp. tofu milk powder**
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ascorbic acid***

Place all ingredients in automatic bread machine and bake according to manufacturer's directions.

If desired, this recipe works well for bread kneaded by hand as well.

*pre-ground whole wheat purchased from a supermarket works well too; may use all unbleached or a combination of whole wheat and unbleached white flours if desired.

**may omit and use a milk alternative instead of warm water listed later in the recipe

***if you don't have ascorbic acid on hand, try crushing and grinding a vitamin C tablet

If using bread machine: wheat flour will have different moisture contents from batch to batch. Use the amount given in the recipe. Add more flour or liquid as needed. The dough should be soft, but just start to pull away from the edge of the container while kneeding. If it doesn't pull away, add flour. If it doesn't stick to the sides much, add a tsp. of water at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
