Pseudo G(ood)E(arth) Rolls Bread [Honey Whole Wheat Bread]

16 ounces whole wheat flour
12 ounces hot water
8 ounces bread or all purpose flour
1 5-ounce can of evaporated milk, or milk, or more water, or soy for vegans)
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons instant yeast
1/2 to 1 cup bench flour

Preparing the dough:
Mix the hot water and whole wheat flour together in a bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and set aside until around room temperature, at least 1 hour.

Add the milk, honey, salt, yeast, and bread flour to the original mixture and mix until well combined. Add additional flour and knead by hand or in a stand mixer until a tacky but not completely sticky dough is formed. Place the ball of dough in a well-oiled bowl, cover with dampened towel, and set aside to rise for 60 to 90 minutes.

Divide the dough in two and shape the loaves. Place the loaves in greased bread pans, cover the pans with dampened kitchen towel, and set aside to rise again for 90 minutes.

During the final 30 minutes of rising, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the pans into the oven and immediately reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Bake for approximately 45 to 55 minutes, rotating the pans once so that they brown evenly, until the internal temperature of the loaves is around 190 degrees F and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

Makes 2 loaves
