Yummy Quick Wheat Bread



I got this wheat bread recipe from Kimberly Murray who attended the Canton Ward when I lived in Canton, MI.

5 1/2 c. hot water
2/3 c. hoil
2/3 c. honey
1 T. salt
12-14 c. wheat flour
3 T. yeast

Warm oven to 150 degrees. In a large electric mixing bowl(Bosch, Kitchen Aide, etc.), whisk water, oil, honey and salt for 30 seconds. Add 5 cups flour, run machine until batter is smooth and cakelike. Add yeast, run machine for 30 seconds, and add 2 more cups of flour. Using dough hooks, add 2 more cups of flour. Make sure flour is being incorporated, then add 3 more cups of flour, and make sure all flour is absorbed. Add your final 1 to 2 cups flour. Put lid on securely, turn to high speed for 5 minutes. Grease bread pans with a little bit of oil on your hands. make 4 even dough balls. Shape into loaf and place into pan. Put in warm oven for 25 minutes, then turn oven up to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Take out of pans and place on cooling rack. You may brush the tops with butter. Cover with towel until cool.

**This loaf is a little big b/c I only divided this recipe into 3 loaves, as was written in the original recipe. I really think 4 is the way to go.
