Whole Wheat Bread

From Traci U.
Makes 4 loaves


5 cups hot water
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cups rolled oats
4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. yeast
10 cups whole wheat flour (or you can use 7 whole wheat and 3 white)


Add all ingredients in a mixer in the order listed above, mixing as you are adding. Keep adding beyond the 10 cups of flour (usually 3 to 4 more) until dough pulls away from the side of the mixing bowl. Let knead 6 to 7 minutes. Lay on a floured surface and divide in to 4 loaves, do not tear, but cut with a knife. Shape and put in pans to raise until doubled in size. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

***I use my professional 5 kitchen aid with a 5 quart bowl and I almost ruined the motor trying to knead 13 cups of flour, so I will half this recipe next time and only make 2 loaves at a time. Hope that helps.***
