Wheat Bread Recipe

This recipe is from my old RS president in Boise. She would make this bread for everyone in the ward. It's pretty fast, and very moist and fluffy. I used fresh ground wheat flour, but you can also use store bought wheat flour.

5 cups Hot Water
2/3 cups Oil
2/3 cups Honey (use same measuring cup as oil, so the honey comes out easily)
2 cups White Flour
12-13 Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tbsp SAF Instant Yeast (kind of hard to find, you might need to order it online. there's a store in Boise that sells it, but here in Texas I couldn't find it)
1 Tbsp Salt
4 Tbsp "Blue Chip Baker" Dough Enhancer *this is the secret to this recipe*

  • Preheat oven to 200 (or lowest temperature available)
  • Mix Water, Oil, Honey, White flour, 4 cups of Wheat Flour, and Yeast very well
  • Let rest 10 minutes
  • Add Salt and Dough Enhancer, mix well
  • Add the rest of the Wheat Flour 1 cup at a time, 8-9 cups total.
  • The dough will pull away completely from the side of the mixer when enough flour is added (it will still be sticky)
  • After the dough is mixed, leave the machine on and knead 3-5 minutes
  • Place dough on greased surface and divide into 4-5 loaves
  • Put the loaves into greased bread pans and let rise in warm oven for 20-30 minutes
  • Turn oven on to 350 and bake 30 minutes

This bread is best when hot, but keeps very well in the freezer. And you can prepare a lesson while it's baking!!
