Homemade Bread

Camden LeeMaster, Frisco 1st Ward

1/2 c. Warm Water
3 (1/4 oz) pkg Active Dry yeast
1/4 c. Bread Flour
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 c. Quick Cooking Oats
2 c. Whole Wheat Flour
4-1/2 c. Warm Water
1-1/2 Tbsp. Salt
2/3 c. Brown Sugar
2/3 c. Vegetable Oil
10 c. Bread Flour

In mixing bowl, stir together 1/2 c. warm water, 1 Tbsp sugar, 1/4 c. bread flour, and yeast. Let grow about 5 minutes. It will bubble almost immediately.

Measure oats, 4-1/2 cups warm water, whole wheat flour, salt, 2/3 c. sugar, and 2/3 c. oil into mixing bowl. Mix on low speed with a dough hook for 1-2 minutes. Increase speed slightly and begin adding bread flour 1/2 to 1 cup at a time until dough pulls away from the edge of bowl. It is normal for dough to be sticky. Place dough in an oiled bowl; turn to coat the surface. Cover with damp cloth. Let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour or double in size. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Shape loaves and place in greased 8x4 pans. Let rise until dough is 1 inch about rim of pans, usually 1 hour. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until tops are browned. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn onto wire racks to cool completely.
