Light Wheat Sandwich Bread

1 cup warm water (about 110°F)
2 1⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1⁄4 cup honey
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour 

In large mixing bowl, combine warm water and yeast. Stir and let stand for about 5 minutes, or until frothy. Add honey, salt, butter and egg, and stir well.

In separate bowl, whisk together flours. Add most of flour mixture to yeast mixture and stir until ball forms.

Turn out onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, gradually adding remaining flour until it’s all incorporated. Place dough in oiled bowl (I use walnut oil), turning over once to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temp-erature for 2 hours.

Turn out dough on floured surface and knead for several minutes. Shape into log and place into greased (or nonstick) 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Press dough evenly into pan, making sure it touches all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise again at room temperature for 1 hour.
