Perfect Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

This is a great recipe. Really, really yummy, sliceable bread. You can use all wheat, all white flour, or a mixture. You can make anything out of this recipe: loaves, rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, etc. It has a strange ingredient: soy lecithin. It's good for you- it's made from soy beans. I got it at the store where I bought my Bosch mixer, but I think you can get it in health food stores and maybe even grocery stores. It's worth it. It really makes good bread. If you can't find it, you can substitute vegetable oil.
I like to make 3 loaves of bread using all whole wheat flour except 1 cup of white. With the other 1/4 of the dough, I like to make a dozen rolls. I roll them into rolls, put them on a cookie sheet, and freeze them. When they're frozen, put them in a quart bag. Thaw and bake at 350 when double in size. They bake for about 15 minutes. This recipe makes delicious, light rolls. I've also used this recipe for pizza crust and cinnamon rolls.

Makes 4 loaves

10 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. salt
3 T. yeast

Mix these dry ingredients in a bread mixer or by hand in a very large bowl.
3 T. Lecithin
4 cups hot water

Knead for 5-10 minutes (I do this in my bosch)
Shape into 4 loaves and place into pans.
Allow to rise for 25 minutes.
Bake 25 minutes in a 350 oven.
