It has been a while since I made homemade bread.
So this morning, I decided to make some bread.
I've been making healthier bread with more grains
than just making the regular white bread.
So here's the recipe I used.
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 to 5 cups all purpose flour
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add honey and stir will. Mix in the whole wheat flour, salt, and vegetable oil. Work the all-purpose flour in gradually. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for at least 10 to 15 minutes. (I used my KitchenAid Mixer for the kneading). When the dough is smooth and elastic, place it in a well oiled bowl. Turn it several times in the bowl to coat the surface of the dough, and cover with a damp cloth. Let it rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
Punch down the dough and shape it into two loaves, and place into two well greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Allow the dough to rise until it is 1 to 1 1/2 inches above the pans.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.
Your kitchen is going to smell heavenly!
