Quick Honey-Wheat Bread

2 cups water
2 tablespoons yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups wheat flour
4 cups bread flour
1/4 cup honey

Heat the water so it's warm to the touch but not too warm (2 minutes in the microwave and let sit for five minutes while you chase a screaming kid).

Stir the sugar into the water to dissolve. Add the yeast, stir again. Let it sit for five minutes until frothy.

Add the oil. Stir.

Add the wheat flour. Stir.

Add two cups of bread flour and the honey. Stir.

Add the salt. Stir.

Add the last two cups of bread flour. Knead for 3-5 minutes.

Cover loosely and let the dough double in size, about 1 hour in normal conditions. It will take longer if your house is cold.

Grease the inside of your loaf pan (this makes one large loaf of bread or two smaller ones).

Knead the dough for another 3-5 minutes. Please the dough in the loaf pan and let it rise until it's an inch over the top.

Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes.

Total working time... 20 minutes.
