#7 Whole Wheat Bread

I have a wonderful bosch mixer so making large quantities of bread is quick and easy.  If you don’t have one, ask for one for Christmas or save your change in a jar until you can buy yourself one.  They are so worth it!

The next thing you need is a wheat grinder so you can grind your own fresh flour when you need it.  I love my whispermill and if you are making bread in your bosch your hubby might just buy you a whispermill for Mothers day.  You save a lot of money making your own delicious bread.

7 cups hot water
2 heaping Tbls yeast
1 1/2 Tbls salt
1/2 fresh lemon juiced – this is for the Vitamin C.  You can use powder or crush up a Vit C pill if you want.  It really helps the bread but is not necessary.
1/3 cup honey or other sweetener of your choice or leave it out if you want.
1/3 cup oil – I use olive oil
17 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour (I like hard white wheat the best, but hard red works great too.)
 

Mix in your mixer for about 8-10 min to knead.  This makes 4 enormous loaves of bread.  you will need very large pans or break down to 5-6 loaves for smaller pans.  Rise until doubled in size.  Cook at 350 degrees for 30-35 min.

I have used spelt and liked it.   Also 1/2 sprouted white wheat and 1/2 unsprouted white wheat, that worked too.

This makes great bread bowls for soup too.

Don’t want 4 loaves and don’t have a mixer?  You can make this by hand in a bowl, it’s very therapeutic to knead dough!

Enjoy 🙂
