Recipe // Whole Wheat Bread-single loaf
adapted from Word of Wisdom Living
yields single loaf
1 1/4 cup warm filtered water
1 package yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 cup honey (I used raw honey)
1/4 cup canola oil
3 cups whole grain flour*
Combine ingredients in order and mix. Knead 5-8 minutes by mixer using a dough hook. If dough doesn't pull away from bowl and is still sticky then add a little flour. Flatten ball on an oiled and floured surface to work the dough into a rectangle. Roll the dough into a log nearly the length of the baking pan. Bend the ends under to make a neat loaf. Place dough log in a greased pan and let rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours. Dough should rise above pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
*I highly suggest using fresh ground flour. Luckily my sister has a wheat grinder and I was able to grind a bag full of wheat and store it in my freezer. Keep it fresh so that the wheat flavor comes through.
