Mad Dog’s Ultimate Whole Wheat Semolina Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 58mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Proof yeast with 1 cup of water that has had the honey mixed into it for ten minutes.
  • Sift flours (bread, whole wheat & SEMOLINA) and salt together into mixing bowl.
  • Mix flour combination with the melted butter.
  • Mix flour combination with proofed yeast and additional water until a dough ball is formed.
  • Knead dough for ten minutes.
  • Place dough into a buttered bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm, draft free place (I heat oven to 115ºF and then turn it off) at least one hour until dough doubles in size.
  • Punch down the dough, form it into a loaf and place in a buttered metal bread loaf pan (big one as this makes a big loaf).
  • Let loaf rise a second time (at least one hour or until loaf doubles in size) in a draft free warm place (I put into the microwave and leave it uncovered.).
  • Bake bread in a preheated 375ºF oven for 35 minutes until bread reaches an internal temperature of 180-200ºF.
  • Turn bread out of pan and let cool on rack.
