honey-ww-bread recipe

 This recipe is for bread machines, in particular, the 1.5 lb panasonic
 1.5 t salt
 3 cups whole wheat flour
 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
 1/3 cup cornmeal (I use masa harina)
 2 T gluten
 3 T nonfat dry milk
 1/3 cup honey
 1.5 cups water
 1 T yeast
 Place all ingredient except yeast in the pan.  Place yeast in the
 dispenser. Program for Whole Wheat (for dark crusty crust) or Basic
 Bread (lighter crust) and press start.  Wait 3-4 hours.  This makes a
 2 lb loaf.
 I find Red Star Active Dry Yeast to be the best.  When I was actively
 baking, I'd get it in 2lb packs from the wholesale warehouse stores
 and keep it in the frige (much cheaper that way).  Adding gluten
 (vital wheat gluten or gluten flour, not hi-gluten flour) to whole
 wheat breads really helps a lot.  The bran in whole wheat bread
 inhibits the formation of the long protein gluten strands that trap
 gas bubbles and give bread its spongyness.  Adding more gluten to
 compensate makes whole wheat breads lighter.  Try 1-4 T per loaf.
