2 1/2 c Warm water
2 tb Dry yeast
3 tb Oil
6 c Whole wheat flour(or less)
4 tb Honey or molasses
1 1/2 ts Salt
Dissolve the yeast in warm water(proof). Add the oil and honey. mix flour
and salt. Add the liquids and mix well with hands, adding a little more
flour if needed. Cover and let rise until doubled; about 1-1/2 hours. Knead
down. Shape into two loaves. Place in oiled loaf pans. Allow to rise again
until nearly doubled. Bake ten minutes at 400 degrees. Reduce heat to 350
degrees and bake 20 minutes more. Cool on rack. This is a simple, delicious
bread. It is easy to make and works well for beginners as well as old
hands. One cup cracked wheat may be substituted for one cup of the flour.
