  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm (105° to 115°F) water
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup warm (105° to 115°F) milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons salad oil
  • 4 3/4 to 5 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat or graham flour
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored, and shredded


  • Sprinkle yeast over 1/4 cup of the water in large bowl of electric mixer. Add 1 teaspoon of the brown sugar. Let stand until soft (about 5 minutes). Stir in remaining water, milk, remaining brown sugar, salt, and oil.
  • Add 3 1/2 cups of the unbleached flour. Mix to blend, then beat at medium speed until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Stir in whole wheat flour and apple. Then stir in about 3/4 cup more unbleached flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a board or pastry cloth coated with some of the remaining 1/2 to 1 cup unbleached flour.
  • Knead until dough is smooth and springy and small bubbles form just under surface (12 to 15 minutes), adding just enough flour to prevent dough from being sticky. Turn dough in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours).
  • Punch dough down and divide into two equal portions. Shape each into a loaf. Place loaves in greased 4 1/2 by 8 1/2-inch loaf pans. Let rise until almost doubled in bulk (40 to 45 minutes). Preheat oven to 350° F. Bake until loaves are well browned and sound hollow when tapped (40 to 45 miriutes). Remove loaves from pans and let cool on wire racks.
