Honey Wheat Bread

I made this to go along with our soup...and since Jenny's become so fond of pb&j's lately I wanted a less expensive option than buying bread every time I leave the house! ;-)


2 1/4 oz. pkg. dry yeast (note, that is two, 1/4 oz. pkgs....not a 2-1/4 oz. pkg.! :-)
2/3 c. honey
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. warm water
3 c. whole wheat flour
2 to 3 c. bread flour (be sure to have extra flour...I sprinkle the counter/board fairly heavily and find that keeping your hands well floured is a must!)

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in large bowl. Stir in
honey, oil, remaining water and wheat flour. Mix until
smooth. Stir in enough bread flour to make dough easy to
handle. Knead 5 to 10 minutes on floured board. Place in
greased bowl, cover with a towel. Let rise until double in

Punch down and divide in half. Flatten into a rectangle and
roll to form a loaf. Place in 2 greased 9 inch loaf pans.
Allow to rise to top of pan.

Bake on low oven rack at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Freezes
