The Best Sandwich Bread

I found this recipe somewhere on the Internet months ago and instead of pinning it like I normally do I wrote it on the back of an envelope. Now the envelope is dingy and crumpled because I've made this so many times since then. It's an easy and foolproof bread to make that turns out fantastic so I wanted to write the recipe down before I lost this envelope because that would be terrible.

Great for slicing, toast, and sandwiches. It's very dense and makes a substantial loaf comparable in size to store bought bread.

You'll need:
1 c of water
1 c of milk - both should be just warm enough that you can notice they are warm
2 1/4 t yeast
3 T honey
2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 c all purpose flour
1 c regular oats
4 T cooled, melted butter
1 T salt

- Mix your warm liquids with the yeast and the honey and let it sit. If it foams up a little and smells yeasty then you can proceed. If it doesn't your liquid is too hot or too cold or your yeast is too old.

- If the yeast checks out then you can add everything else and knead or mix with your stand mixer. I use my stand mixer. Mix/knead until it is all combined.

- Cover (I use a plate) and let rise for at least one hour.

- Mix/knead again and plop it into a large loaf pan. Smoosh it around until it's loafier. Let it rise for another hour.

- Bake at 400 for 40 minutes.
