Ingredients:  
3 cups very warm water

3 Tbsp. oil

Directions:
Directions:
Mix water, sugar, and yeast in bowl of mixer. Add oil. Add flour, then salt. Knead with a dough hook (or by hand) for 10 minutes. Allow dough to rest and rise until double in bulk, about 30-45 minutes. Spray counter and hands with oil or nonstick spray, and turn dough out onto counter. Knead and shape bread into three loaves. Spray oil on loaf pans to prevent sticking. Place loaves in bread pans and allow to rise until dough is higher than the top of the pan, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 27-30 minutes, depending on how dark you like your crust. Turn bread out of pans immediately after removing from oven, and allow to cool.

To make sure the bread has a good consistency, I always use at least 2 cups white flour with my whole wheat flour. This is one of my favorite things to bake.
