Challah - white whole wheat

This is a significantly modified version of this recipe: http://www.leahcookskosher.com/show_recipe.php?id_recipe=90 which probably came from Spice and Spirit.

2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp + a pinch salt
1/3 cup oil
1 1/6 cup warm water
1 TBS yeast
White whole wheat flour as needed (~4-5 cups)

Combine eggs, sugar, and oil in large bowl. Combine salt with flour in separate bowl. (This is probably unnecessary...hmm.) Proof yeast in warm water with a pinch of sugar for a few minutes. Dump yeast mixture into egg mixture, stir to combine. Add flour slowly, stirring and then kneading until it's...dough. Knead until it's...the consistency that kneaded bread dough should have. (Hey, these are my notes for myself!) Place in oiled bowl. Turn dough over to coat top with oil. Cover with damp cloth, put it in a warm spot, let rise for ~1 hr or til doubled. Punch down the dough well, shape into some shape(s) that make(s) you happy, let rise again. Bake at 350 degrees, on a greased cookie sheet. My two loaves baked for somewhere between 20 and 25 minutes.
