Honey Wheat Bread


1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup honey
2 TBS shortening
2 1/4 cups bread flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 TBS dry milk powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp bread machine yeast or quick active dry yeast
2 tsp dough enhancer (optional)


Measure carefully, placing all ingredients in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer.  Select basic/white or whole wheat cycle.  Use medium or light crust color.  Do not use delay cycles.  Remove baked bread from pan and cool on wire rack.

** If your machine has a dough cycle, follow the above directions and set the machine on 'dough' to mix and run through the first rise.  Remove dough from machine, punch down, and place in bread loaf pan.  Cover with a tea towel.  Let rise in a warm place for an hour or when doubled in size.  Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes.

Servings: 16    Yield:  2 lb. loaf

I began baking my own bread January 2010.  I no longer use the bread machine to do all the baking because the loaves come out much lighter letting them rise and bake in a regular oven.
