I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Whole Wheat Bread

Whole Wheat Bread
(We don't eat a lot of bread, but when we do, this is often it.)

1 Tb yeast
1/4 C warm water
2 1/2 C hot water
6-7 C whole wheat flour
1/4 C evoo or coconut oil
1/4 C apple sauce
1/3 C sugar
1/2 Tb salt
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 C warm water, about 10 min.  (Use 1 tsp sugar to expedite if necessary.)

Put the hot water in a Kitchen Aid. Add 3 C whole wheat flour, salt, oil, applesauce, sugar, and yeast mixture.

Add 2 C whole wheat flour.

Add remaining 1-2 cups of flour slowly. (Not too much!)  The dough will begin to form a ball and will still be a little sticky. Let it knead for 8 minutes.

Remove the dough, oil the bowl, and return the dough to the oiled bowl.  Cover and let rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.

Punch down and divide dough in half.  Shape each half and place into greased bread pans.

Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
Bake 350 degrees for 25-35 min.
