Beat 1 egg slightly with 1 1/4 cups water in a large bowl. Stir in 4 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Baking Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand in pan on wire rack about 5 minutes; loosen sides with spatula and turn, right side up, on rack. Cool thoroughly before slicing.
