Homemade Bread Recipe for Whole Wheat Bread

A whole wheat bread recipe that will make 2 small loaves.

There is something about the smell of homemade bread that is extremely comforting. I make this every week for my family and once you get used to baking with yeast, it becomes very easy.

* 3 Tbs fat
* 1/4 C brown sugar
* 1 Tbs salt
* 1 cake compressed yeast
* 3 C lukewarm liquid
* 8 C whole-wheat flour
* 1 C white flour for kneading

Place the fat, the sugar, and the salt in the mixing bowl and add the yeast cake dissolved in a little of the liquid.

Add the remainder of the liquid, and then stir in half or all of the flour, according to whether the sponge or the straight-dough method is preferred.

Mix, knead and rest as usual.

Bake at 180 degrees C. (350 F) until ready, about 50 minutes.

Thank you for the recipe, I just wondered if you could switch the compressed yeast to using baking soda, and baking powder to make it rise?
I know that bread made at home is great, and a good way to save money as well.
