This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. I was able to substitute 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat flour, without turning the loaves heavy. The only other change I made was to add an additional 1/8 tsp. soda, as I wanted to make sure it turned out with lots of "holes". Super easy and not at all difficult - used my kitchen aid stand mixer.
- 5 cups all-purpose flour, divided
- 2 packages active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups skim milk, warmed
- 1⁄2 cup water
- to taste cornmeal
