Molasses and Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Submitted by: KNOTTYNODDER


Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups water
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons molasses
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/3 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour + about a 3/4 cup for working dough
    1 1/2 teaspoons Rapid Rise Yeast ( I use Fleishman's bread machine yeast)

Directions

Mix flours, salt, and yeast in large mixing bowl.
Mix very warm water (about 120 degree), honey, molasses, and olive oil in a medium mixing bowl.
Add very warm water mixture to dry ingredients. Mix with spoon until dough starts to pull from sides of bowl.
Use your hands to gather the dough into a ball and turn out on floured surface. Knead the dough, sprinkling with flour as needed, until the dough forms a smooth elastic ball.
Oil a large bowl with olive oil or cooking spray. Place the dough ball into the bowl and turn to coat the ball in the oil. Cover the bowl with a dish towel and let rise in draft free place for 45 min. to 1 hour. Dough should double in size.
Punch down the dough and knead a second time on lightly floured surface (about 2 or 3 minutes).
Shape dough to fit loaf pan and place in oiled pan. Brush the top of the loaf with olive oil. Cover with towel and let rise again about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees during this time. Remove towel from loaf pan and bake bread about 45 minutes or until nicely browned or sounds hollow when tapped.

Serving Size: 16 1/2 inch slices
