Whole Wheat and Honey Sandwich Bread, delicious!
Whole Wheat and Honey Sandwich Bread.

I love bread. Love it! I have so many cookbooks about bread, I could write nothing but a bread themed blog. Years ago I baked all of our bread. We were a farm-style white bread family at that time. And still, I make that type of loaf today, especially during the holidays. You cannot beat cinnamon toast on rich egg bread, not to mention french toast or bread pudding when the end of the loaf is insight.

Always through the years, I had a strong desire to use whole grains as the primary flour in bread making. But whole wheat flour in a bag, on the shelf, in the grocery store, tasted bitter to me. This alone was a big factor in not baking from whole grains. But I never gave up on the desire to use whole grains, and I am so glad I did not.

The flour grinder was worth the investment. Also through the years I have purchased and played with just about every piece of kitchen equipment and gadget. But until now, never a grain mill. Why did I wait so long? Yes, the price was an issue, a good mill can cost hundreds of dollars, and my concern in the early years was that the investment would not pan out........

But I am so happy I was wrong! Bread baking is a joint effort in this home. We enjoy the entire process and partner in the kitchen to get it done. Good times and great food. And now let me present this easy Whole Wheat and Honey Sandwich loaf, and next time I will use a long loaf pan. These sandwiches would not fit in a standard sandwich bag.....

Whole Wheat and Honey Sandwich Bread

61/2 - 7 c whole wheat flour - divided (we use Spelt flour)
2 1/2 c lukewarm water
2 T or 2 packages yeast

1/3 c oil
1/3 c honey
1 T salt
juice of 1/2 medium-sized lemon

In a large mixer bowl, add 4 c of the flour, water, and yeast. Mix until smooth.

Add oil, honey, salt, and lemon juice.

Add 2 1/2 c more flour and mix until smooth, adding the final 1/2 c flour if the dough seems too wet.

Knead for 10 minutes.

Prepare 2 large loaf pans, divide the dough (it is sticky) equally. Let rise 30-45 minutes or until doubled.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, bake 30 minutes or until done in your oven.

Loaves should sound hollow when tapped with a knuckle.
