Bun in the Oven

We all know that whole grain bread is more healthful than white but sometimes it just doesn't taste that great. Well, today is your lucky day because I found an awesome wheat bread recipe on cooks.com that I know it will win you over. Try it out! I know you'll love it!!

Whole Wheat Bread
2 tbsp yeast
2 c lukewarm water
1/4 c honey
3/4 c olive oil
2 fresh eggs
6 c whole wheat flour (I usually only use 5 1/2 cups which makes it softer.)
2 tsp salt

Dissolve yeast in water and honey for about five minutes. Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and knead until it loosens from sides of the bowl. Place in large oiled bowl, cover and let rise until about double. Be sure it is in a warm place. Remove and shape into loaves, rolls, or buns. Bake at 375 degrees until browned.

In other news, I actually have a bun in the oven but it won't be ready until November 23. I'm so excited!! :)
