Fabulous Homemade Oatmeal and Whole Wheat Bread

Submitted by: TUPPERANGEL

Introduction

Found a "starter" recipe on ALL RECIPES from J.Drury- Fabulous homemade Bread. I tweaked it to include only whole wheat. My pans are 9.25x5.25x2.75. Chances are your pans are smaller and you will be able to make more than 4 loaves. The original recipe made 6 -8x4 loaves. You can do all of this by hand if you so choose- I did. :) This is a great bread for PBJs and toast. Sometimes homemade bread is just good by itself but I needed to have a recipe for the kids lunches that I knew was good for them AND my budget.

Ingredients

    * 1/2 cup warm water
    *3 Tablespoons active dry yeast
    * 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    * 1 tablespoon white sugar
    * 2 cups quick cooking oats
    * 2 cups whole wheat flour
    * 4 1/2 cups warm water
    * 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
    * 2/3 cup honey
    * 2/3 cup olive oil
    * 10 cups fine whole wheat flour

Directions

DIRECTIONS

1. In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, stir together 1/2 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, and yeast. Let grow for about 5 minutes. It will bubble almost immediately.
2. Measure oats, 4 1/2 cups warm water, 2 cups whole wheat flour, salt, 2/3 cup honey, and 2/3 cup oil into the mixing bowl. Mix on low speed with a dough hook for 1 to 2 minutes. Increase speed slightly, and begin adding flour 1/2 to 1 cup at a time until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Humidity determines how much flour you need before the bread pulls away from the edge of the bowl. It is normal for the dough to be sticky.
3. Place dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover with a damp cloth. Let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
4. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Shape loaves, and place in greased 8 x 4 inch pans. Let rise until dough is 1 inch above rim of pans, usually 1 hour.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C) for 35 minutes, or until tops are browned. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes, and then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.
