Half whole wheat bread
1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup lukewarm milk
1/2 to 2/3 cup warm water, enough to make a soft, smooth dough
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 packet active dry yeast dissolved in 1 tablespoon warm water
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir till the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased surface, oil your hands, and knead it for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it begins to become smooth. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl, and allow the dough to rise till puffy though not necessarily doubled in bulk, about 60 minutes, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.
Transfer the though into a greased 8x4 bread pan, cover and let rise for 30 min. Preaheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread for 30-35 minutes.
