I think I better start making this on a regular basis. My family has ate two loaves already and I made it yesterday. This recipe makes four loaves so if you only want a couple cut it in half. It's really easy and doesn't take too much time as you don't have to let it rise.
3 Tbs yeast
3 Tbs vital gluten
1 Tbs salt
1/2-1 cup wheat germ
1 cup honey
2/3 cup oil
6 cups hot water
6 cups+ white flour
6 cups+ wheat flour
1 Preheat oven for 200 Combine in bowl first four ingredients.
2 Combine in the mixing bowl honey, oil and water.
3 Add six cups flour to the mixing bowl; mix well. Add yeast mixture. Start timer for 12 minutes. Add 6+ flour till the dough cleans the sides of the bowl (I find it's quite a bit more flour). Continue mixing until the 12 minutes is up. Divide dough into four loaves and place in 4 oiled and sprayed bread pans. Place loaves in oven and set timer for 20 minutes
4 If loaves have risen to just above the rim after the 20 minutes turn oven to 350 and bake for 20 minutes. Check for doneness by tapping and listening for a hollow sound; add five minutes if necessary.
5 For softer loaves, immediately turn the bread out of pans and onto a damp kitchen towel. Spritz with water. Allow them to cool and then slice or freeze.
