Sweet Molasses Brown Bread

2 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast
1/3 cup molasses
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons oil
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups whole wheat flour
3-4 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the water, yeast, molasses, cocoa powder, oil, honey, salt, and 2 cups of the whole wheat flour. Mix until combined.
  • With the mixer running, gradually add the rest of the flour starting with the whole wheat, then adding the bread flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl (you may not need the last cup of flour). Knead for 5-7 minutes. The dough should be soft and slightly tacky.
  • Transfer the dough to a large, lightly greased bowl, then cover with a sheet of plastic wrap lightly sprayed with cooking spray, or cover with a light dish towel. Let rise until doubled in size, 1-2 hours.
