Mennonite Whole Wheat Bread

Ingredients & Directions


2 pk Yeast, dry 1/2 c Honey
4 c ;Water, warm 2 ts Salt
1/2 c Butter; softened 6 c Flour, whole wheat
1/4 c Molasses 4 c Flour, white

Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Combine butter, molasses, honey,
and salt. Mix well. Add yeast mixture. Gradually add flour. Turn
onto a floured board and knead until smooth (this will take a fair
amount of shoulder; the dough is fairly heavy). Place in a large
greased bowl, then turn to grease the top. Cover with a clean tea
towel, and let rise until doubled, about two hours.

Punch dough down, and let it rest a few minutes. Divide into
quarters, and shape into loaves. Place in greased bread pans, and
let rise about one hour. Bake at 375 F. for 35 to 40 minutes.
