This Wheat Bread recipe is my new favorite. It was one of my Grandma's. My Grandma was an amazing cook. She is the reason that I love to cook so much. After she died last May I wanted to feel close to her even though she was gone. I have always loved cooking since i was a little girl, but now it has been magnified. Dennis and I no longer buy bread. I got a Bosch mixer for a wedding gift from my grandpa and my mom's brothers. It is the best ever. I would suggest if you are contemplating getting a mixer buy a Bosch in stead of a kitchen aid. It is amazing! I hope you enjoy this recipe. We sure do!
3 tbs of yeast sprinkled on ¾ cup of warm water and 1 tsp of sugar (set aside)
Mix thoroughly in mixer:
2/3 cup oil 5 cups warm water
2/3 cup of honey or brown or raw sugar 7 cups whole wheat flour (I do half wheat half white)
2 tbs of salt
Add yeast mixture. Ad three cups of flour and mix for 5 minutes. Sprinkle 3-4 cups of flour into mixer while mixing 5 more minutes. (Add enough flour till dough cleans side of bowl) Mold into pans, let rest 25 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
For sweeter bread use ¾ cup of honey ( it makes it taste a million times better!)
