Yummy Wheat Bread!

I really love to bake! Cookies, breads, anything...It's just so fun! Recently, I have started making this excellent recipe for wheat bread! My little brother, Michael, made the recipe at school last year on Colonial day, and we found the recipe a few weeks ago. This is some of the easiest bread I have ever made, and it doesn't take much time at all to make! I love eating it with raspberry jam..yummy! Definitely try this one out!

2 C. warm water
1 Tbsp. yeast
1/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 C. vegetable oil
1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour
About 4 C. white flour (I actually only end up using about 3 cups)

Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Stir in sugar until dissolved, let stand 3 minutes. Add salt and vegetable oil. Stir in wheat flour. Beat 1 cup whtie flour. Add flour 1/4 c. at a time until dough is stiff enough to knead (but not flaky). Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead a couple of times. When dough springs back after lightly touched, shape into ball and place in well greased pan to raise until about double in size (it took about 15 minutes for me!). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove from pan and cool

For anyone reading this, this really does make fabulous bread. It has a slight, very yummy sweet taste to it, and doesnt take very long to make. I think I'll try making it myself when Katie leaves for school! (sob!)
