Here is the same recipe as yesterday, written for the convenience of those who have a smaller mixer or are making bread by hand. This recipe will make three loaves.
Whole Wheat Honey Bread
2 1/2 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp salt
1 T soy lecithin (optional)
1/8 tsp vitamin C (optional)
2 T vital gluten (optional)
1 egg (optional)
1 1/2 T instant yeast
7 cups whole wheat flour, approximate measure
Combine water, oil, honey, salt, soy lecithin, vitamin C, gluten flour, and eggs. Mix well.
Add three cups of flour and mix. Add yeast and mix. Add flour until dough doesn't stick to sides of bowl.
Stop mixer and allow to rest for ten minutes.
Knead for five minutes with kneading hook on medium speed or by hand.
Form into loaves. Place in greased bread pans. Allow dough to rise until double.
Bake bread at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool.
