Whole Wheat Bread

My sister-in-law just bought a Bosch and was asking me for a good whole wheat bread recipe. I immediately knew just the one!

I got this recipe from my aunt, Janell (the one who's a fabulous cook and I get lots of recipes from). I love how this recipe doesn't have the same texture and heaviness that most homemade whole wheat bread recipes have. And if you have a Bosch, it's a BREEZE to make!

Here's what you'll need:

3 1/2 C. hot water
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
3 T. instant yeast
2/3 C. oil
1 C. honey
1 C. all purpose white flour
3 T. gluten
2 T. dough enhancer
12 C. whole wheat flour (I grind my own using white wheat)
1 1/2 T. salt

For best results, grind your own wheat to make your own whole wheat flour. (If you have any flour remaining after making this recipe, place in a Ziploc bag and freeze. That will help to preserve the nutrients and help to make it stay fresh for longer.)

Using a Bosch mixer, combine ingredients in the order given; mixing well after half the flour, then add the other half of the flour and salt.
Add a little extra white flour if dough is too sticky. Knead in mixer for 8 minutes. Divide into 5-6 loaves. Place into greased loaf pans and rise in a warm spot for about 45 minutes - 1 hour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing (if you can stand it).

It is so delicious and light and tender! Give this healthier recipe a try!!

Oh my goodness, I so needed this. I wish I live close to you cause I suck at making bread! :/ I don't know why. Maybe I should invest in a Bosch. :) Your bread looks so nice!
