This is my mom’s bread recipe and it is really amazing!! Just wait you’ll see! Since, I like yummy yet easy recipes, this one is perfect. I have shared this with many friends, and the share it with their friends!

1 1/8 cups warm water
2 T oil
3 T honey (or sugar)
1 1/2 cups white flour
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1 1/2 teas. salt
2 T dry milk
4 tsp vital wheat gluten (this is optional)
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

By Machine: (this is how I do it) Add ingredients, to your bread machine, in order listed. Start ‘dough cycle’.

By Hand: Combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Knead until elastic, 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rise about an hour

When bread has risen or the machine is done, knead lightly and form a loaf. Place into buttered loaf pan and preheat the oven to 375. Let rise until pretty (30-60 minutes depending on the temperature of your room). Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how dark you like your bread. Remove from pan and let cool completely before slicing.
