Hand Mixed Whole Wheat Bread Recipe--All Together Now ...

I realized how difficult I made it to copy and paste this recipe in my last post so here it is again, all in one spot:

Soften in container in order:
1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp. honey
1 T. yeast
(swirl in container together)

Whisk together in bowl in order:
1 cup warm water
2 T. oil
2 T. honey
1 rounded tsp. salt
1 egg
1 tsp. lemon juice (we actually omitted this because I forgot to bring it ... maybe a happy accident?)
2 cups whole wheat flour (2 1/4 cups if freshly ground)

Add up to 1 cup more flour and mix together by hand until well blended and all the flour is mixed in. It will form a sticky ball that holds its shape. You may add 1/2 cup more flour if it will not form a ball. Spray top with oil and let rest for 30 minutes.

With well oiled hands, form into a loaf. Place in well greased pan. Raise until doubled. Bake in pre-heated oven (350) for 30-35 minutes.

If anyone makes this, I would love to know how it goes.
