lo and behold, it’s bread.

as you are well-aware, my specialties often revolve around things with that are sweetened and simple. this is the best of both worlds as it is both healthy and includes lots of baking time (during which  time i can simply sit around and feel accomplished).

here’s the recipe, brought to you by the trusty source of allrecipes.com (original post here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-whole-wheat-bread/)

Ingredients 

 
Original recipe makes 3 loaves

  • 3 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 5 cups bread flour

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
 Directions
  1. In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast, and 1/3 cup honey. Add 5 cups white bread flour, and stir to combine. Let set for 30 minutes, or until big and bubbly.
  2. Mix in 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/3 cup honey, and salt. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour. Flour a flat surface and knead with whole wheat flour until not real sticky – just pulling away from the counter, but still sticky to touch. This may take an additional 2 to 4 cups of whole wheat flour. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a dishtowel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  3. Punch down, and divide into 3 loaves. Place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans, and allow to rise until dough has topped the pans by one inch.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes; do not overbake. Lightly brush the tops of loaves with 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine when done to prevent crust from getting hard. Cool completely.

enjoy!
