Simple Wheat Bread

Yield :4 loaves

  • 4 cups of water (microwaved 1:30 in the summer/ 2 minutes in the winter)
  • 1 TBS sea salt
  • 1/2 c honey
  • 2/3 c canola oil
  • 12 cups of flour (mill approx. 8 cups of wheat berries)
  • 2 TBS of fast acting yeast
  • Preheat oven to 350'
  • Blend first  four ingredients together and set aside.  In a seperate bowl, add 6 cups of flour.  Then add yeast.  Now add 6 more cups of flour.  No pour one cup at a time of the liquad mixture into the dry ingredients.  Knead well and then continue the process until all liquad is added.  Knead dough (I do mine on the counter, you may use a large mixer with a dough attachment) for approx. 10 minutes. 
  • Let dough rest for 10 minutes. 
  • Divide into four sections.  Roll out each section into a rectangle.  Fold dough into 3rds (like a letter) and place seam side down in your pan.  Tuck the ends under. 
  • Set aside and cover with a flour cloth and allow to rise for 20-30 minutes. 
  • Bake at 350' for 25-30 minutes. 
 You may use the same dough for rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, breadsticks(pictured above), etc... The final product is so yummy.

Thanks so much to my dear friend Cathy who shared this wonderful recipe with me.
