Homemade Wheat Bread

Yesterday I took the plunge and made homemade bread! It was easy (really). I have always been a bit intimidated by making it, and it wasn't that bad at all. It turned out pretty good. My family was sooooo happy. I got this really good recipe from a friend of mine and I love it! You should try it:

Whole Wheat Bread
4 cups warm water
2/3 C. oil
2/3 C. honey
2 T yeast
Sit 4 minutes
Add: 1 C. powdered milk, 2 C. potato flakes, 1 C. Gluten Flour, 1 C. oatmeal, 2 T. Salt, 2 eggs (you can also add 1 C. flax, or wheat germ
Around 10 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
Knead for 12 minutes (I did this by hand), Add 2-3 T dough enhancer
Place in Greased bowl with wrap covering dough
Rest 30 minutes (room temp is best)
Shape into loaves, Rest 30 minutes.
Bake 325 degrees for around 30 minutes.
