Directions:
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add whole wheat flour, 2 T. of butter, sugar, salt, and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 - 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch the dough down. Shape into two 6-in rounds; place on a greased baking sheet. Cut slashes in top with a knife. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes. Bake at 400 for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with remaining butter.
