OMGosh Whole Wheat Bread

I've been making the same type of bread for a while now.
Nothing wrong with that,
I just wanted to try something new.

I found this recipe here.

OMGosh Whole Wheat Bread

1 C warm water (115-120 degrees)
1 T milk (alternatives are fine)
2 T olive oil
2 T honey
2 T sucanat (or brown sugar)
1 t salt
1 1/2 C bread flour
1 1/2 C wheat flour
2 t yeast

Warm water to correct temperature (see ingredient list).
Add milk, oil and honey to container
when water is sufficiently warmed.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl,
combine dry ingredients.
Mix well, then add water mixture.
Stir with wooden spoon,
then turn out onto floured board or counter
to knead up to 15 minutes.
Oil the same large bowl and place dough in
and turn once to evenly coat with oil. 
Let rise at least 30 minutes.
Lightly oil a bread pan and place dough in
to rise another 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

***Note-This bread is really great for folks who like
a softer, more tender bread. 
Even Big K, who unfortunately
uses what I call "killer white" bread for sandwiches,
 said he would eat it on a regular basis!
Never thought I'd hear him say he'd eat whole wheat.
Now that's somethin'!

I doubled the recipe the first time I made it
and it turned out fantastic!
