Wheat Swirl Bread
- In a mixing bowl combine 2 cups of the all-purpose flour and the yeast. In a saucepan heat milk, honey, 1/4 cup margarine, and salt until warm (120 degree F to 130 degree F). Add to flour mixture; add egg. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in whole wheat and rye flours, wheat germ, and as much remaining all-purpose flour as you can.
- Turn out onto a floured surface. Knead in enough all-purpose flour to make a moderately stiff dough (6 to 8 minutes). Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly double (1-1/4 hours).
- Punch dough down. Turn out onto a floured surface; divide in half. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Roll each half to a 15-inch square. Spread with softened margarine; sprinkle with brown sugar. Roll up into a spiral; cut into thirds. Seal ends; place into six greased 5-1/2x3x2-inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double (about 45 minutes).
- Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans. Makes 6 small loaves (48 servings).
