Wheat Bread

I've been baking home-made wheat bread for years and today, finally bought a wheat grinder. I don't have it yet, but I'll let you know how I like it when it comes in.
I thought I'd share the recipe I use quite often for just an everyday bread.

Wheat Bread
3 Cups warm water
1-1/2 TBS salt
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup oil

Add above ingredients and mix a few moments. Add 4 cups wheat flour and 2 TBS instant yeast. Add 5(ish) cups flour. Knead in mixture with dough hook, then place on floured board, sprinkle with more flour and knead a few minutes. Let rise with damp towel covering the dough. Punch down and form in loaves. If you'd like seeded bread like mine pictured, mix sesame seeds and poppy seeds together. Lightly wet your loaf of dough, roll in seed mixture and then place in bread pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, then lower heat to 350 for another 25 minutes or so. Remove from oven and spread butter over tops of loaves.
Makes 3 loaves of really, yummy bread!
