Best whole wheat bread EVER!


This was given to me from my friend Cindy who got it from Rachel (both ward members).

2 c. warm water
1/4 c. canola oil
1/4 c. honey
1 T. yeast
1 T. gluten flour
1/2 T. salt
1 T. ground flax seed
5 c. whole wheat flour
Combine ingredients above into a mixer (kitchen aid, bausch, etc.)
Add whole wheat flour 1 c. at a time until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.
Allow to knead for 7-10 minutes. Cover dough with a clean kitchen towel. Allow dough to rise until double in size. Punch down and shape into 2 loaves. Allow loaves to rise until double in size.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from pans and allow bread to cool on a wire rack. Spread butter over the top of the loaves.
For Bread Machine Recipe
2 c. warm water
1/4 c. canola oil
1/4 c. honey
1/2 T. salt
1 T. ground flax seed
5 c. whole wheat flour
1 T. gluten flour
1 T. yeast
Add the ingredients in the following order. Place the bread machine on "dough" cycle. After the dough cycle is completed, shape dough into lightly greased bread pans (this will make 2). Allow to rise until double in size. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from pans and allow bread to cool on a wire rack. Spread butter over the top of the loaves.
I've tried a lot of whole wheat bread recipes before. But I must say that this recipe is number 1 in my book. It is a soft whole wheat bread, not a dense heavy bread. It says soft for days (not that it lasts that long in my house). Yum!
