Directions:
Oven: 375º
40-45 minutes

Soften yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water (110º). Set aside. Combine hot water, sugar, salt, shortening; cool to lukewarm.

Stir in whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour; beat well. Stir in softened yeast. Add enough of remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Turn out on lightly floured surface; knead till smooth and satiny (about 10 minutes).

Shape dough in a ball; place in lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in warm place about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Cut in two portions; shape each into a smooth ball. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

Shape in loaves (I usually do round). Place in greased loaf pans or rounds. Let rise till double (about 1 1/4 hours).

Bake in moderate oven (375º) about 40-45 minutes. Cover with foil last 20 minutes if necessary. Makes 2 loaves.

Personal Notes:
Stay away from bread machines! This recipe is best hands on. The less you kneed the dough the better. However, it should be smooth and non-sticky. Serve warm with real butter and jam.
