Tasty Tuesday - Honey Wheat Bread

I have to apologize in advance for this recipe (and any other bread recipes that I may post in the future) - I am not familiar with bread machines and therefore have no recipes that use one. However, I'm sure any avid bread machine user would easily be able to convert this recipe to bread machine "format".

This is my favorite bread!

Honey Wheat Bread

2 c. warm water (110 degrees)
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 T. yeast
1 t. salt
2/3 c. honey
1/3 c. oil
5 c. all-purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add honey and stir well. Mix in whole wheat flour, salt, and oil. Work into dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead in remaining flour 10-15 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Coat dough lightly with oil and place in oiled bowl. Cover with damp cloth.

Let rise until dough has doubled in size. Punch down dough. Shape into 2 loaves and place in 2 bread pans. Let rise until 1 inch above edges of pans.

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Another variation for this recipe is to make sub rolls instead of regular bread loaves. (They make EXCELLENT sandwiches!) Just place the sub rolls on a cookie sheet instead of a loan pan for baking. Make sure you leave room for them to expand during the 2nd rising before they go into the oven.
