My whole wheat bread recipe...

My whole wheat bread recipe... just thought I'd share.

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 tsp sea salt
1.5 cups lukewarm water
1/3 cup Demerara sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil

In a mixing bowl, combine everything except the olive oil.. In a mixer fitted with the dough hook, knead on medium speed until it becomes a ball, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to another bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
Transfer to a loaf pan, molding into a loaf shape.
Let rise in loaf pan until peeking over the edge, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450F.
Brush the top of bread with olive oil.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove to cool.
Slice and serve.
