I made this with white flour only because I didn’t have any whole wheat. I also used regular vegetable oil instead of butter flavored. The maple flavoring is very subtle, but adds a nice touch. It came out amazing, so feel free to change things up.
p.s. I have no idea why it’s called graham bread.
3/4 tsp maple flavoring
1 C whole wheat flour
2 C very hot water
1/3 C butter flavored Wesson oil
1 pkg of yeast
1 C warm water
3/4 C sugar
1 Tbsp salt
5 – 6 C white flour
1. In a large bowl, combine flavoring, wheat flour, oil and and very hot water. Mix well and let set a few minutes.
2. Mix yeast and warm water until dissolved. When flour mixture is lukewarm add yeast mixture, sugar and salt.
3. Add white flour until dough is stiff. Knead well, place into greased bowl and turn over to coat. Let rise until double, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down and knead again. Place into 2 greased loaf pans. Let rise until double.
4. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees.
