Honey Whole Wheat Bread

All my family uses this recipe. Delicious, nutritious...and not too hard!!

6 cups warm water
2 T. salt
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
2 T. wheat gluten
2 T. dough enhancer
2 T. instant yeast
10-11 cups wheat, ground

Add water and several cups of freshly ground whole wheat flour to Bosch mixing bowl with dough hook in place. Mix the water and whole wheat flour. Add the salt, honey, dough enhancer, gluten, instant yeast, honey, and oil. Mix briefly. While the Bosch is kneading at a low speed, slowly add whole wheat flour until dough pulls away from the side of the mixing bowl. Increase mixer to medium speed when it slows down. May need 1-2 cups of white flour - dough will be slightly sticky. Knead with Bosch until gluten is developed (8-12 min). With oil, water, or shortening on hands, remove kneaded dough from mixing bowl. Shape into loaves and place in pans previously greased (if needed). Let loaves rise in a warm place until double in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from pans immediately and cool. Makes 5 regular size loaves.

I have this recipe. I got it from a bosch lady! She says that the BEST kind of honey to use in this recipe is Orange Blossom Honey. Must say, it's yummy honey. I bought a big ol jar of it in Arizona because I couldn't find it in Provo.
