Hard white wheat is a whole grain that is a hybrid of hard red wheat. It is equal in nutrition to the other wheat varieties. This bread is perfect for sandwiches and french toast. It is light and mild tasting. If you are just switching from white bread, this is an easy transition. If you meet resistance with your family, start with half white flour and half white wheat and slowly replace the white with wheat flour.
5 cups warm water
1/2 cup light olive oil
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons dough enhancer
15 cups hard white wheat flour
2 tablespoons SAF instant yeast
Place water, oil, honey, salt, and dough enhancer in mixing bowl. Put 10 cups of flour on top. Make a well for the yeast and knead with dough hook adding remaining flour just until the dough pulls together. Start timer for 8 minutes. Keep a watch on the dough in the first few minutes to make sure it is kneading and not all stuck to the center post, add more flour as needed. Remove dough from bowl and work on oiled surface to divide, weigh and form loaves. Place in sprayed pans, let rise until 1 ½ inches past the loaf pan's edge. Place in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes. Drop the temperature to 325 degrees and finish baking for 20 minutes, do not open the oven door. After 25 minutes in the oven remove one loaf and check the internal temperature. The loaves are done at 180 degrees, remove promptly from loaf pans and let cool on wire racks. Slice with an electric knife.
These are 2 pound bread pans with the loaves formed before rising. The specks are from the leftover quinoa in the fridge that I just threw it.
