Big Bread!

This bread rose so high I had to remove the top made a dent in the loaves!

This recipe (adapted from a Food Nanny recipe) only makes 2 works with a Kitchen Aid mixer that has a smaller capacity than a Bosch.

Honey Oat Wheat Bread

Mix in a small bowl and let sit until bubbly...about 10 minutes:

2 1/4 C warm (110 degree) water
1 T yeast (I used SAF)

In bread mixer bowl mix:

3 T oil
3 T honey
1 egg
5 T oats (old fashioned or quick)
3 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C gluten flour
yeast mixture

Mix (or stir with a big spoon) about 2 minutes. Then cover and let set for 20 minutes until bubble appear on top and mixture is almost doubled.

Gradually add about 2 C white flour...enough for a soft dough. Knead 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl; spray top with Pam and cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Divide in half and form into loaves. Oil tops and cover with towel; let rise until doubled again...about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Butter loaves when they come out of oven.
