Honey Wheat Bread II
Our Oldest daughter Sandy and her daughter Sara would always fight over who was going to get the first slice when it came out of the oven.
- 2 cups warm water (110 degree- baby bath warm)
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup oil
- 5 cup all purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add honey and stir well. Mix in whole whet, salt and the vegetable oil. Add all purpose flour gradually. Once the bread dough looks like "a matadore hat" continue mixing/kneading several minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in large greased bowl (glass is best), turn to coat all of the doughs surface. Cover with a damp cloth. Let rise in a warmdraft free place until doubled in bulk (about 45 minutes)
Punch down the dough and divide in half. Roll out bubbles and roll up into the shape of a loaf. Do the same with the second "loaf". Place loaves into oiled bread pans and let rise again. When about 1 to 1 1/2" above pan bake in preheated oven about 30 minutes.
I find that once I can smell that heady beautiful odor the bread is done or pretty close. After that smell (about 25 minutes) take out your bread and if it comes easly out of bread pan tap the bottom. If it sounds hollow it's done. IF it doesn't comeout of the pan easily and you greased them well then the bread isn't done yet. Give it another 5 minutes and check it again
