Whole Wheat Basil Whey Bread

After making Instant Pot yogurt (recipe can be found in a post from earlier this week) I use the whey strained from the yogurt to make this delicious crusty bread!

What you'll need:
2 cups of warm whey
1 packet of active dry yeast
1 T raw sugar
1 t garlic salt
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 T fresh basil, chopped
Parmesan cheese

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar into whey then add the salt and yeast.  Add the whole wheat flour.  Gently mix ingredients with wooden spoon until combined.  Flour will be wet and sticky.  Cover and let raise for about 2 hours, or until doubled.  Turn dough onto floured surface and kneed dough into a ball by turning sides under, adding flour, until dough is smooth and elastic.  Form into a ball.  Place in a preheated cast iron pan and bake for 20 minutes at 450 degrees.  Bread will be brown and crusty.  Knocking on the top of bread should sound hollow when done.  Brush with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.
