December 22: Whole Wheat Bread

Cooking with whole wheat has been a passion of mine. I have taken many classes on using whole wheat and have taught many classes also.

I have owned a Bosch mixer since I was 18 years old and have been making whole wheat bread since then. I like many different whole wheat bread recipes but one of my favorites is the Bosch recipe. Here it is. Hope you enjoy!

6 c very warm water
2 TB salt
2/3 c oil
2/3 c honey
2 TB instant yeast
2 TB Dough Enhancer
10-16 c ground wheat
In mixing bowl combine water, salt, oil, and honey. Then add the yeast. (Make sure the water is not too hot.) Add dough enhancer. Slowly add wheat and mix until dough pulls slightly away from the sides of the bowl. Knead until gluten is properly developed. (You will be able to stretch it without holes easily forming.)
8-12 minute in Bosch Standard or Universal. 12-18 min. in Bosch compact. 5 minutes before the dough is ready, add the Dough Enhancer. Shape into loaves on hard greased surface. Rise in 150 oven 15-20 minutes. Turn heat up to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
+++Make a batch at dinner time and use some of the dough in your meal, such as pizza, sopapillas, scones, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, or braided bread.
