This is my mother-in-law's bread recipe. It's wonderful, and the only bread we eat anymore! It's very versatile and you can make it more or less whole wheat and add different flours (12 grain etc.).

3 Tbsp. of yeast and 2 Tbsp. of sugar in 1 Cup of Warm Water.
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup Honey
4 Tbsp. Butter/Margarine
3 1/2 Cups Warm Water
a few sprinkles of salt
Add yeast mixture to above and stir. Then add flour. It takes approx. 13 cups of flour, but it will vary depending on how much whole wheat vs. white flour you use. I usually do approx. 9 cups of whole wheat and 4 cups of white. I like how this combination rises and the size of the loaves that come out. 
Knead on a floured surface
Let rise covered in a greased mixing bowl. 
Separate into loaves. Makes 3-4 loaves depending on the size of your loaf pan and the size of the loaf you make. 
Bake in greased loaf pans at 325F anywhere from 20-40 minutes (depending on your oven of course).

Enjoy a slice warm with butter! Mmmmm fresh bread. One of my huge weaknesses! This bread freezes well. I usually freeze a couple in freezer bags and just pull them out as we need them. I end up making this recipe about once a week because we go through a lot of bread in our house!
