Wheat Bread

This recipe from CHILD magazine was delicious! It was also very simple even without the bread maker. It does make two loaves so I am going to have to adapt it before trying it in the bread maker...

1 packet yeast
2 cups warm water
3 cups white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons honey (or sugar)

In a small bowl, whisk yeast into warm water; set aside. In a large bowl, mix flours and salt. In another small bowl, combine oil and honey.

Add yeast mixture and oil mixture to flour. Stir until mixture becomes thick and doughlike.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl, turn once, cover and place in a warm spot for about an hour, until dough doubles in size.

Turn risen dough onto a floured surface and punch to deflate. Divide dough in half and form into loaf shapes.

Place dough in two greased 8" loaf pans and allow to rise for 45 minutes. Preheat oven for 400 degrees. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes. until golden brown and hollow-sounding when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on baking racks.
