Grandma's Bread Recipe (Grandma Sybil Kyle)

My grandma suggests that the bread is better if the flour is ground fresh. I ground the wheat with my Vitamix. I don't have a traditional flour mill.
6C warm water
1/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup Butter
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 vitamin C crushed up.
1 egg or 1T Soy Lecithin blended in blender with 1C flour
1 1/2 T Salt
Add 8-9 Cups fresh ground hard red (winter or spring) wheat
2 T Vital Wheat gluten mixed in with some flour
3T yeast
Add white flour to get a fairly wet dough that still sticks to the fingers a little bit.
For Normal Bread:
Let rise for 45-60 minutes in a covered bowl.
Shape into loaves and place in greased loaf pans
Let rise for 45-60 minutes
For Raisin swirl bread:
Let rise for 45-60 minutes in a covered bowl.
Roll out 1/4 of the dough at a time on a floured cookie sheet and coat with honey, walnuts and 1/2-3/4 cup raisins. Top with cinnamon. Roll up and place in loaf pan. Let rise for 60 minutes. Bake an extra 15 minutes or so.
Bake @ 350 until tops brown 20-30 minutes.
makes 4.5 loaves
