Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 cups warm water
2 tablespoons instant yeast
1/2 cup honey or 3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
11 cups flour (a mix of 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose is best)

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve the yeast and honey in the warm water. Add the oil and salt and stir to combine.
Add 5 cups of the whole wheat flour to the bowl and stir to combine. Stir for 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the white flour, a cup at a time, until a smooth dough starts to form. You can use a stand mixer or your hands.
Knead the dough on a well-floured surface until the dough becomes soft and elastic and doesn’t stick to your hands.
Let the dough rise in the bowl until doubled, covered with a heavy towel or plastic wrap.
Once the dough has risen, divide it into four pieces. Shape the dough into loaves and place them in 4 greased loaf pans.
Let the dough rise in the pans until it is an inch above the rim.
Bake the bread at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. The crust will be golden brown and you’ll hear a hollow sound when you tap the bread with your fingernail.
Remove the bread from the oven, then remove the bread from the pans and place the hot loaves on wire racks to cool. Rub a stick of butter on the top of the hot loaves.
Allow the loaves to cool slightly or to room temperature before slicing and serving. Store cooled loaves in an air-tight container and use within 5 days.
