Whole Wheat Bread

This is my new standby recipe.  Versatile because it can be used for:  bread, rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza dough and much more....  :)  And it's only made from 5 wholesome ingredients.

1 T. yeast
3/4 warm water
3/4 milk
2 T. honey
3-3.5 c. whole wheat flour (fresh ground is best, since I don't have a mill I prefer King Arthur's)

1.  In a large bowl whisk yeast and warm water together.  Then let rest for about 10 minutes.  When you come back it will look kind of frothy.

2.  Stir in milk and honey.  Then add about 3 c. flour and mix.  Depending on the climate you may need more flour at this point.  (I do in NC, but you may not in CO.)  Once it's a firm, but not sticky dough let it rest to rise for about 1 hour.

3.  Get out bread pan/baking sheets (spray if desired) and punch down the dough.  Then make into a loaf, rolls, etc... and let rise for another 15 or so minutes.  (While it's rising this last time, preheat the oven to 350degrees.)

4.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 for bread, 15 for rolls or pizza.  (Other things keep an eye on the oven, and experiment!)  :)

5.  Enjoy!
