Whole wheat bread recipe

Okay, Melinda: Here's the bread recipe. It is a big may need to halve it for a kitchenaid. ? A couple of notes the teacher told us. Your dough should be tacky NOT sticky. Once you've added all the flour. Put it away. You should use oil on the counter when you knead it. NOT flour.
This recipe that makes 6 loaves of bread calls for 2 TBSP of dough conditioner so if your using another recipe adjust it as needed. You can add it to any dough recipe even if it isn't called for.
Also Melinda, at the class he used the same batch of dough to make a bunch of little loaves, a large pizza, and a big batch of cinnamon rolls. So all you need is good dough and you can bake to your hearts contents (and stomachs cravings!) The cinnamon rolls made with the wheat dough were really good. I never thought they tasted "off" at all.

100% Whole Wheat Bread

5-6 cups hot tap water (hot to the touch; not hot enough to burn finger)
2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey
2 tbsp. Kitchen Specialties dough enhancer
2 tbsp. instant yeast ( we recommend SAF yeast)
2 tbsp. Salt
2 tbsp. vital wheat gluten
12-16 cups freshly milled whole wheat flour

Pour warm water into Bosch mixing bowl. Add approximately 6 cups flour on top of liquid. Then add dough enhancer, oil, honey, yeast, and gluten. Use the (M) momentary switch to mix well.

Add approximately 5 additional cups flour, and salt. Turn to speed 2. Continue adding flour � cup at a time until the dough pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl. Continue kneading on speed 2 for another 5-6 minutes. NOTICE!!! If using a kitchenaid take out dough and knead by hand for an ADDITIONAL 6 minutes.

Oil or grease hands and counter. Divide dough into equal portions and shape into loaves. Put into well greased pans. Let rise until double in size. Bake 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack. Top of loaves can be brushed with water or butter for shiny appearance. Dough can be used for pizza crust or cinnamon rolls

Thank you SO much Lillian! I'm going to have to borrow my mom's bosch so I can make it...Would dough enhancer be available at Walmart or Smiths? Sorry, I'm sure it's a stupid question, I have just never seen it there. I guess I could look the next time I am there. :)

I don't know where all you can find dough conditioner. If you can't find it locally you can definately do searches online and buy it that way. Also, the teacher made a big deal out of using SAF yeast rather than the little packets of fast yeast that I always buy. Apparently there's a difference. SAF yeast is cheap and he says it stays good opened for a long time.
