Whole Wheat Bread

This is my mom's recipe. I have fond memories of coming home after school, smelling this bread and eating a warm slice with butter and honey.

1. In 1/2 c warm water sprinkle 2T yeast and a little brown sugar. Set aside.
2. Blend 5c hot water & 7c whole wheat flour
3. Add 2/3 c oil
2T salt
1 c powdered milk
2/3 c brown sugar (or honey)
1 egg
4. Add yeast mixture.
5. Add 5-6 c whole wheat or white flour.
6. Mix on low for 10 minutes (add more flour if necessary)
7. Put in greased bowl and let raise for 2 hours.
8. Form into loaves (I usually do 5).
9. Let raise for about 30 minutes (not over tops of pans).
10. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
