This recipe is from the More-with-Less Cookbook (put out by the Mennonites). Rob has been using a Joy of Cooking recipe to make bread every once in awhile but he couldn't get it to rise properly. He tried this recipe yesterday and the bread rose wonderfully and tastes delicious!
3 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. salt
3 pkg. dry yeast
2 c. milk
1/2 c. oil
5-6 c. more flour
Combine the 3 cups of flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Heat 2 c. water along with milk and oil in a saucepan until warm. Combine dry ingredients, warmed liquids and 2 eggs. Beat at low speed until moistened. Beat for 3 minutes as medium speed. Stir in by hand 5 - 6 cups additional flour.
Use enough flour to form a stiff batter. Cover and let rise until double. Stir down and spoon into 2 greased 9x5" bread pans. Let rise 20-30 minutes. Bake at 375° F for 35 - 40 minutes.
Tastes great with butter and honey slathered on top.
