-Should Try; 2 1/2 – 3 T
5 c Whole-wheat flour

Aid mixing bowl
I grind my own wheat which is Hard White Spring Wheat from Montana and I
use Fermipan Yeast. When I got this recipe from an acquaintance last year
I asked her what her brands she used of everything in the recipe and this
is exactly what I am sharing with you. It is a lighter colored wheat bread
and has a wonderful flavor that does not leave a bitter sort of aftertaste
that I have experienced with my previous brands of wheat.
Let the first 4 ingredients sit for a few minutes to “proof” – it will
begin to “grow” and will look bubbly and foamy.
Add whole-wheat flour and mix for 1 minute.
Add veg oil and salt, mix together another 1 minute.
Add flour until dough pulls away from sides of bowl.
Knead and rise as usually for any basic bread dough.
This will make 3 very large loaves or 4-5 smaller pan size loaves or it is
fun to make 12 of the very small loaves (maybe 2 1/2 x 3″ pans)
