This is the bread I make all the time. Everyone that tries it says they love it, and I know it doesn't last long around the guys either. This recipe is based on one my mom gave me a long time ago. I've made some adjustments until it was perfect for us.

This makes a hearty wheat bread that is great for toasting or just with butter. Makes two loaves.

3 packages active dry yeast
3 cups hot tap water
1/4 - 1/2 cup of honey to taste(I use dark local wildflower honey)
4 cups white bread flour
3 cups whole wheat flour
5 teaspoons salt
5 tablespoons vegetable oil

In a large bowl combine yeast, hot water and honey. Stir until the yeast dissolves and the honey mixes in. add the white flour and the salt. Stir hard until mixed, then add the wheat flour and mix with your hands until you have a good ball of dough that holds together.

Pour the oil over it and work the dough until it mixes in most of the oil. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let rise for 45 minutes.

Split into two even parts and knead slightly, then drop each loaf into a greased loaf pan. Cover each pan with glad wrap and let them rise for 30 minutes.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. I use pyrex loaf pans and this is the right time for mine. If you are using metal pans, you may need to adjust this. When finished, let cool on a wire rack.
