Special Whole Wheat Bread

Special Whole Wheat Bread
This bread has a moist, soft crumb and additional protein from cottage cheese.
Yield 1 (9×5-inch) loaf



  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour


  • Add 1 cup bread flour, yeast, and salt to a stand mixer bowl; set aside.
  • In a saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat water, milk, honey and cottage cheese to 120-130°F.
  • Add warm milk mixture to flour mixer; using a paddle attachment, beat for 4 minutes on medium speed.
  • Switch to dough hook attachment. Gradually add whole wheat flour and remaining bread flour and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    (NOTE: For hand mixing: following above steps, mix ingredients in large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or dough whisk. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic.)
  • Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after poking dough with finger down to second knuckle, about an hour.
  • Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Roll or pat into a 14×7-inch rectangle. Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll. Pinch edges and taper ends to seal. Place in prepared loaf pan. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
