Fresh.n.Natural's picture
  Wheat germ 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Unbleached white flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Active dry yeast 1 Tablespoon (1 Package)
  Brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried marjoram 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Eggs 3
  Whole wheat flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Celery seed 1 Tablespoon

1. Mix the wheat germ, 1 cup white flour, the yeast, brown sugar, salt, and herbs in a large bowl.
2. Heat the milk, water, and oil until very warm. Stir into first mixture. Add 2 eggs and beat at medium speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes.
3. Stir in the whole wheat flour and enough additional white flour to make a firm dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
4. Put in an oiled bowl, turning to oil the top. Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap, allowing the wrap to touch the dough. Let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled.
5. Punch the dough down, cut off one-fourth and divide in three parts. Shape each into a 10-inch rope and braid.
6. Shape remaining dough into a loaf and put in an oiled 9- by 5- by 3-inch loaf pan.
7. Top with the braid and press down slightly. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Brush with the remaining egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water. Sprinkle with celery seed.
8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
9. Bake the bread for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done. If too brown cover with foil for the last 10 minutes. Turn out on a wire rack to cool.
