This past week I made honey whole wheat bread with a couple of friends. It is a bit dense to use as sandwich bread, but it tastes delicious with some warmed butter and peanut butter. Its becoming my new favorite breakfast.

*Recipe yields two loaves

3 teaspoons  dough enhancer
3 cups  whole wheat flour
2 cups + 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon  hot water
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup  honey
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons yeast
3 cups whole wheat flour

1. Stack ingredients through yeast - blend together
2. Knead while adding additional flour - knead until dough cleans inside of bowl
3. Turn speed up for three minuets
4. Pour some olive oil on counter and hands - throw dough down seven times
5. Cut dough in half
6. Smooth and tuck dough/giving it an occasional chop with your hands to remove bubbles. Once lines are removed and dough is shaped like a loaf place in greased bread pan.
7. Let dough rise till it reaches about an inch from the top of pan - or till it doubles in size.
8. Bake at 350 for 30 minuets or until golden brown.
