Light and Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread




If you like a light and fluffy whole wheat recipe, you will
love this version. To make the bread heartier you can add
oatmeal, flax seed and nuts. If you do add these extras
don't add as much flour. This bread is so yummy. It
never lasts long at our house!

Light and Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread

3 cups warm water
2 tbsp. Yeast
1/3 cup honey
3 tbsp. dough enhancer or wheat gluten (optional) makes your bread lighter
5 cups white wheat flour (you can use red wheat for a stronger wheat taste)
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1/3 cup honey
1 tbsp. salt
3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. butter, melted

In a bread mixer, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. sugar over yeast. Add 1/3 cup honey, and 5 cups of flour and mix until blended. Cover with a dish towel and let sit until big and bubbly for about 30 minutes.

Add dough enhancer, melted butter, salt, 1/3 cup honey and flour one cup at a time. Add flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Do not add too much flour, or your bread will be tough. Knead for 10 minutes. Transfer dough to a buttered bowl. Butter dough so that it does not dry out. Cover dough and place in a warm place. Let rise until double in bulk or to the top of the bowl. When making wheat bread do not let it rise too much.

Punch dough down and divide into 3 balls. Form balls into loaves of bread and place in greased 9x5 inch loaf pans. Cover pans with a cloth and let rise in a warm place until 1” above pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. butter, remove from pans and let cool. Fresh bread right out of the oven s hard to resist.
