A very simple whole wheat bread recipe that makes wonderful peanut butter sandwiches and toast. This recipe is very forgiving too so if you aren't normally a bread baker, the loaf will still turn out fine.
3 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1/3 cup honey
5 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon salt
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 c. mashed bananas (optional included in nutritional information)
1 tbsp cinnamon (optional included in nutritional information)
2. Mix in 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/3 cup honey, and salt. Add the bananas and cinnamon at this time. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour. Flour a flat surface and knead with whole wheat flour until not real sticky - just pulling away from the counter, but still sticky to touch. This may take an additional 2 to 4 cups of whole wheat flour. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover with a dishtowel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled.
3. Punch down, and divide into 4 loaves. Place in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans, and allow to rise until dough has topped the pans by one inch.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes; do not overbake. Lightly brush the tops of loaves with 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine when done to prevent crust from getting hard. Cool completely. Makes 4 (12 slice) loaves.
5. Freeze any loaves that you won't be using immediately by wrapping in foil and placing in a freezer bag.
