Honey Wheat Bread

Honey Wheat Bread
1 1/4 cup warm milk
1/4 cup honey
1 egg beaten
2 tsp yeast
2 cups whole wheat flour (you can omit the white flour, and do 3 cups wheat flour.)
1 cup white flour
1 TBS butter or shortening (I like to use 2 TBS milled flax seed)
1 1/2 tsp salt

Pour the warm milk into a mixing bowl, add the honey (barley mixing it in, you do not want the water to cool), and sprinkle the yeast on top.
While the yeast is activting, gather your ingredients. When the yeast is foamy in appearance; add the flour, butter, and salt. Mix until the dough is smooth. The dough may appear a little sticky, do not add any more flour.
Allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes in a warm location (an oven that was heated to 200, and then turned off works great.)
Punch down the dough, and knead into a bread loaf. Place in a warm location and let rise for about 30 minutes.
Place in a pre-heated oven at 375 and bake for 30-35 minutes.
