Jojo's Bread

I love this recipe from Jojo. It's simple and fast. I have the smaller Kitchen-Aid, so I just make half of this recipe which yields 2 loaves.

Mix on low in Kitchen-Aid:
5 c. hot water
1 c. honey
5+ c. wheat flour

Add as mixing:
1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. salt
2 heaping Tbsp. yeast
2 Tbsp. oil

Optional ingredients:
1/3 c. dough enhancer
1/2 c. gluten
1/3 c. dry milk

Last add:
6-9 c. wheat flour

Mix for 6 minutes on high. Pour a few tablespoons of oil on counter-top. Take dough out of mixer and using the oil, form into 3 or 4 loaves. Place in sprayed pans. Let raise until doubled. Bake @ 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool on cooling rack. Can slice with electric knife and freeze.

Low-Fat Banana Bread

2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 c. sour cream (or yogurt)

3 c. flour (1/2 wheat)
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding (optional)
2 c. bananas (5 or 6)
chocolate chips/nuts (optional)

Mix applesauce, sugar, eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and lemon juice. Add dry ingredients and mix. Fold in bananas, then chocolate chips and nuts. Spray 2 loaf pans with Pam and pour in batter. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, until toothpick inserted in middle comes out fairly clean.
