    PotterWatch - a big thank you for this recipe! I made it using 1/2 white bread flour and 1/2 whole wheat bread flour and OMG!!! It is awesome bread! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] to you for sharing it with Buster so I could steal it [​IMG]

    Here is my favorite one. Very easy too.

    Honey Whole-Wheat bread

    This is a really great whole-wheat bread. It is my favorite one I
    have tried so far. If you prefer white bread, it makes a wonderful
    white bread as well, just use the same amount of all-purpose flour in
    place of the whole-wheat flour.

    7 1/2 C whole-wheat flour
    1/3 C oil
    1 Tbsp salt
    1 Tbsp yeast
    1/3 C honey
    2 greased loaf pans

    In a small bowl mix the yeast with 1/4 C warm water. Sprinkle a bit
    of flour on the top and cover with a paper towel to bloom. In a
    large bowl, mix 2 1/2 C hot water and 3 1/4 C flour. Add oil, honey,
    1/2 C flour, salt and mix. Add yeast mixture and 2- 2 1/2 C flour
    and mix until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Turn onto a
    floured surface and knead for 10mins. I find that the dough tends to be fairly sticky and I have to add quite a bit more flour as I am
    kneading. Divide into loaf pans and let rise until doubled in size.
    Bake for 35-40 mins in a 350* oven. Turn out immediately onto a
    cooling rack.
