Easy Whole Wheat Bread

(I've posted this bread before with a meatless monday, but I find that I refer to it so often, I wanted to re-post it separately.)


You really should try this bread!  It is the quickest bread recipe I've ever made!


3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 c. gluten flour
1 1/4 T. yeast
Mix together.....and add:

2 1/2 cups hot water (not scalding...just barely "hot")

Stir and then cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Then add:
1 T. salt
1/3 cup honey or 1/2 cup sugar
1/3 c. oil
1 1/2 T. lemon juice
Beat one minute.

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour--Add one cup at a time to make a soft dough.

Preaheat oven for 2-3 minutes to lukewarm.  Turn off.

Turn dough onto oiled countertop and divide into 2 loaves.  Put in greased pans.  Let rise in warm oven for 15 minutes. Do not remove from oven. Turn oven on to 350* and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Try is so yummy!  The gluten flour helps it to have a wonderful texture.  It is kindof pricey...but you don't go through it very fast!
