Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Marie Meyer and I have been friends since we were freshman in high school. I spent a number of holidays at the Meyer farm. Marie and I have  a clutch of good memories from those days. I remember the Meyer kitchen. It consisted of an immense expanse of both table and counter space where three or four different processes or projects were usually in progress simultaneously. Mrs. Meyer turned out as good a loaf of bread as my mother.  I have used her honey whole wheat bread as often as mom’s white bread recipe.

6 c lukewarm water
2 T salt
1/2 c oil
3/4  c honey
3 T dry yeast ( 3 pkgs dry active yeast)
4 c white flour
4 c wheat flour
1/4 milk pwdr
2 eggs
2 c wheat flour
8 c white flour
Mix and knead well. Grease dough and bowl, cover and let
rise until double in bulk. Punch down, knead well and cut into
6 pieces. Shape into loaves and place in greased bread pans.
Cover and let rise, bake at 350 for 30 min.
