Whole Wheat Bread

My mom has made this bread over the years and I love it! I haven't made too much bread, well really I have made bread one time. And it was bread that didn't need to rise, mainly because the rising thing for some reason freaks me out.

Debbie made some bread and doughnut holes on Saturday for the BIRTHDAY potluck we had for Trever and GG and since I can't get any of those today, I thought this was the next best thing. Make it myself! AH!

My mom is home today, and so I thought it would be perfect for me to make it with her help and guidance. It is made and rising right now, so I thought I would type out the recipe while I waited. It is one of my favorite breads!!!


Mix together,
8c white flour and
4c whole wheat flour.

6c warm water. Mix in and dissolve
3 T bread making yeast
1/2 c honey
1 T (or less if you like) salt
Let water mixture sit for about 5 minutes.

Add water mixture to flour and start to mix.
Add 1/2-3/4c partially (15 minutes) cooked wild or brown rice and
1/2-3/4c cooked (for 10 minutes) Irish (or regular) oats.
Mix the gooey mess all up together!

Try as best, to make a "ball" in the center of the bowl.
Cover the bowl with wax paper and a towel.
Let rise for 1 hour in a warm spot.

Punch it down and
Let rise for about 45 more minutes in warm spot again.

Grease pans, makes 5 1# loaves.
With the pan size that we have, it made 4 loaves.
Divide up dough and let it rise until fluffy and looking like a loaf of bread.
Bake at 450* for 5 minutes, then at 350* for up to 30 minutes, until top is golden brown.
Eat out of the oven, freeze or refrigerate.

If you make it, enjoy! If not, I will enjoy mine for you! ;)

Hope you are enjoying your day! Aloha.

The final product!
