Wheat Bread

This is another recipe from Marybeth's book - I wanted it and rather than copy it down on paper I decided to post it and share with everyone! This recipe is from Doug and Marybeth's mom, Melanie.

2 1/2 C Warm water
1 Tbsp yeast - instant is good
1/2 C Old-fashioned oats
1/3 C ground flax seed
1/4 C Olive oil
1/4 C Honey
1/2 - 1 Tbsp Salt
6 C Flour (or more)

Mix the ingredients - the dough should not stick to the sides of the mixer when there's enough flour. Melanie usually uses about 4 C red wheat and about 2 C white wheat, but it doesn't matter too much. You can let it it rise in the mixer if you have a dough hook. You can also do the next step and let it rise in the pans. Knead the dough and cut it in half then place the (nicely shaped loaves) in well-greased loaf pans. Let the dough rise until it's just above the top of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

You can leave out the oats and/or the flax seed
You can roll out half of the dough, cut into small pieces, and cook in oil to make scones...mmmmm!
