Honey Wheat Bread

The hot summer days have made their appearance in this northern land and they have me wishing for a juicy tomato sandwich for lunch. I have the tomato, but now bread. So I'm whipping up our favorite Honey Wheat Bread so I can have my sandwich. :)

In a large bowl add:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Dissolve and wait until yeast froths, then add:
1/8 cup butter (melted)
1/8 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
3 cups of Whole Wheat Flour (I do part white), add more as needed

Add flour a cup at a time until you have a soft dough, and knead for about 5 minutes. Put into a greased bowl and let rise for an hour (in a warm oven or in front of a window where the sun is shining in).

Knead bread again and place into bread pan to rise for another hour.

Then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown on the top.  Butter the top of the bread and let it cook another 2 minutes. Remove and let cool 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out and cool 10 more minutes before slicing.

This recipe was adapted from Favorite Family Recipes and makes one regular loaf.

Do you have a favorite bread recipe or any tips? I'd love to hear them!
