Colleen's Whole Wheat Bread

A delicious homemade whole wheat bread recipe that you can make in a little over an hour! 

5 c. hot water
1/2 c. canola or vegetable oil
1 T. salt
2/3 c. brown sugar or honey
1/2 c. powdered milk
3 T. dry yeast
10-12 c. fresh ground whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, combine the water, oil, salt and powdered milk. Blend together well with beaters (or use your Bosch bread mixing bowl). Gradually add 5 cups of the whole wheat flour and then add 3 T. of dry yeast. Continue to add the flour 1 cup at a time until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. Knead the dough for 10 minutes gradually adding additional flour if needed.

After kneading the dough, preheat oven to 150 degrees. Divide the dough into 4 to 5 loaves. Spray your loaf pans with Pam (or other vegetable spray). Shape loaves and place in loaf pans, turning loaf over one time (to coat with Pam). Turn off oven, place loaves into the oven. Allow bread to raise 20 minutes in the oven (time precisely- don't forget!).

After 20 minutes, turn the oven back on to 350 degrees and bake the bread for 30 minutes. Remove bread from pans immediately after taking pans from the oven. Place on a cooling rack and brush with butter if desired. Enjoy!
