once again, I am not sure where this recipe came from.... it is possible it came from AllRecipes.com but I have been using it for 2 years- and it is the bread that we use for sandwiches, for company, and for just slathering with homemade butter. At the request of many- here it is.
Whole Wheat Bread
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
1 cup warm water (110-120 degrees)
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup oil ( I use extra virgin olive oil- because I like the flavor)
1 pkg. dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp)
mix above ingredients together until blended and yeast is dissolved.
add in 3 1/2 whole wheat flour (or until the dough pulls away from the sides)
Knead for 6-10 minutes on a floured surface- until smooth.
Roll dough into lightly oiled bowl. cover with tea towel and rise for 1 hour.
Shape into greased loaf pan: cover and let rise another 30-60 minutes.
bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. then cover with foil, bake an additional 20 minutes.
:: simple trick if the weather is a bit wet and chilly outside::
preheat oven on lowest temperature possible, mine is at 130.... once preheated, turn oven off, but oven light on. Place dough in oven with light on and watch it rise.
