  3. Incorporate the rest of the all-purpose flour and the whole wheat flour. Stir until the dough begins to come together..
  4. Let the dough stand for 20 minutes to give the flour time to absorb the water.

  8. Grease two 9″x5″ loaf pans. Shape each ball into a loaf by flattening it out into a rectangle with a length of 9″. Fold 1/3 of dough toward you, then fold another 1/3 away from you over the first 1/3. Pinch dough to close the seam. Place dough seam down into loaf pans..
  9. Let dough rise in loaf pans until it starts to dome over. About 30-45 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°F..
  10. Make one shallow cut lengthwise in top of dough with a serated knife. Turn oven down to 375°F and place loaf pans into oven on middle rack..
