Maple Wheat Loaves- Just Because!

My hubby is a meat-and-potatoes guy when it comes to frills, no veggies, no fruit, no whole-wheat, etc., etc. We've been married well over thirty years, so I've learned to live with this. Food-wise, though, I'm just about the complete opposite (though I do REALLY appreciate a good burger now and again!!). Sometimes I just can't help myself and make something "just for me"...and this was one of those recipes. It's super-simple (I must admit, I didn't have any real maple syrup, so I subbed Aunt Jemima !) and so very good. I'm a toast-lover, so know that this makes great toast! 

1Tbsp/packet Red Star Platinum yeast 
1 Cup warm water
1 egg
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
1/4 Cup maple syrup
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 Cup + unbleached flour

Follow the basic instructions on the EZ DOH bucket—Mix water and yeast in bucket. Let sit 1-2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. EZ DOH-it until the dough is soft and smooth, adding additional flour if necessary. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket , replace dough and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. Divide into 2 pieces and  shape each into loaves and place in greased medium loaf pans. Let rise until dough is slightly above the top of the pan. Bake in preheated 375 oven for 25-35 minutes, until golden. Cool on racks . Enjoy!
