Honey Wheat Bread 2

Plan ahead... needs to rise... twice.
Unbaked bread, after rising

1 1/4 c. warm water
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. wheat flour, divided
2 Tbsp. honey
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, melted, plus more for brushing
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk

In a large bowl, whisk together the water, yeast, salt, and 1 cup wheat flour. Let stand 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes, add in the remaining flour, honey, butter, and milk. Stir to combine. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes. Roll out with a rolling pin a few times into a rectangle, then fold into a loaf shape, tucking the ends under.

Baked and ready to eat!
Grease a bread pan. Put the loaf into the pan. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hours in a warm place. I always turn my oven on the lowest setting, and set the loaf pan on the stove to rise.

Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and brush with a little melted butter while it is still hot. Enjoy!
