Quick & tasty yeast bread

2 Tsp honey
2 2/3 c. lukewarm water
4 Tsp dry yeast
3 Tbsp honey
5 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 Tsp salt
1 c. oats

Stir 2 tsp honey into 2/3 cup lukewarm water. Add yeast, set aside for about 10 min. Combine 3 tbsp honey with 2/3 cups of water and combine w/ yeast. Stir into flour. Add salt, oats, and the rest of the water. Adjust amount of water for dough to be quite sticky (I usually use way too little water before this step and then add enough to make it look like a very sticky pizza dough).

Pour dough into non-sticky loaf pans (use PAM!), such that they are about half filled. If you want to make it look fancy sprinkle oats, or other stuff, on top. Let rise until the dough reaches the top of the pan. Bake at 400 F, until it looks done (~40 min.).

Wait with the slicing until it's cold!

About a triple batch will be enough for a pika dinner.
