100% Whole Wheat Bread
Add: 5 to 5 ½ cups hot tap water
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey (or 1/3 molasses + 1/3 honey) or ½ cup granulated sugar
1 very full Tablespoon salt
Run machine for 30 seconds on speed 1.
Add: 5 cups of flour
Run machine until batter is smooth. Use speed 1.
Add: 3 T. Saf instant yeast and 2 more cups flour
Run machine on speed 1 and continue adding 1 cup of flour at a time until the sides of the bowl are free from batter. The total flour used in the batter should be 12 to 13 cups.
Add: 1 to 1 ½ cups additional flour [there should be no more than a total of 13 to14 cups of flour used in this recipe]. Place the lid on the bowl. Turn machine on to Speed 3. Knead the batter with the machine for 4 to 6 minutes. Usually, 5½ minutes is just right. Stop the machine. Oil your hands and shape the loaves (do not use flour). Rise in the oven at 150 degrees until loaves are at top of pan. This takes about 15-20 minutes. Turn oven to 350E and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Baking time will depend on size of loaves as well as the oven features.
