Whole wheat bread

I got this recipe from my mom, who got it from my Grandma, who got it from her sister-in-law. I have of course adapted it to fit our families dietary needs. (Well most of them.) The Gluten free thing will happen after I use up my flour and wheat I have on hand.

4 cups wheat flour} mix 10 seconds
2 cups hot water}
2 tbsp honey}mix 10 seconds
3 tbsp flax seed, with 1/2 + 1 tbsp warm water mix together for a few minutes}
1/4 cup olive oi}
2 tbsp yeast} mix 10 seconds
1/4 cup gluten} mix 10 seconds
2 tsp salt}
3 tbsp sesame seeds}

Add one more cup of whole wheat flour slowly to make a light, soft dough. If more is neccesary add very carefully mix 10 minutes.
Let rise until double- about 30 minutes. Divide into 3 loaves and let rise again for 30 minutes or until 1/2 inch above the rim of the bread pan. Bake at 350* for 30 minutes. Best results come with glass bread pans.

If your friends with me on facebook you can see a before and after picture. I will see if Joey can help me to figure out how to put pictures from my phone to the computer.

Good luck this recipe has only worked for me with the alterations I have made here. So Good luck if you would like the egg butter version let me know and I can add it.
My mom and grandma use a Bosch mixer. I have a kitchen aid. I think that the Bosch is a better bread mixer but I am waiting to get one until some other projects are completed. I will post my cookie recipe soon.
