Summary :

This classic whole wheat dough is perfect for bread but can also be formed into rolls, cinnamon rolls, breadsticks, pizza crust and more.


Ingredients :

Large Batch (6 loaves)
6 cups very warm water
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2/ 3 cup honey
2 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp instant yeast
14-18 cups whole wheat flour

Half Batch (3 loaves)
3 cups very warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp instant yeast
7-9 cups whole wheat flour

Instructions :

Using your Bosch Universal Plus mixer, dough hook and dough hook extender, add water, oil, honey, salt, about half of the flour, and the yeast into the mixing bowl. Use the "M" switch to incorporate ingredients. Optional step: for enhanced flavor and texture, allow the batter to sit for 15-30 minutes, until it becomes bubbly. Slowly increase to Speed 2 and continue adding remaining flour, a little at a time, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. You may not need all of the flour. Continue kneading at speed 2 for 6-8 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Lightly oil your hands and the counter. Divide dough into equal portions and shape into loaves. Place in greased loaf pans and let rise until doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 190 degrees F.

Dinner Rolls: divide dough and shape into your favorite roll (parker house, cloverleaf, crescent, butterflake, etc). Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush baked rolls with melted butter. Each loaf of bread dough yields approximately 16-24 rolls.
