  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 2 cups flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, oil, egg and salt. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute mushrooms and garlic in butter until tender; set aside. Punch dough down. Roll into a 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spread ricotta to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with mushroom mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes. Brush with egg. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 loaf (17 slices).
