I make the dough in a bread maker. You do not need a bread maker, but make sure you let your dough rise twice if you are doing it all by hand.
1.5 cups 2% milk
1.5 tbsp light trans-fat free margarine (mine is 50/5/0 for a tbsp)
3 tbsp brown sugar, packed
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flour
2.5 tsp active dry yeast (or bread machine yeast)
Warm milk in microwave for 30 seconds. Add to bread maker. Add remaining ingredients according to bread maker directions (I add in the order listed). Set to dough cycle.
When dough cycle is complete, knead air pockets out of dough. Divide into 8 equal balls. At this point you can roll the balls out and stuff them. Cover balls with a tea towel and let sit in a warm area without a draft (I put them in the oven with the light bulb on). Let sit for one to two hours (until dough has doubled in size).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
