    Dotty2's Note:

    This bread is made with ground up wheat using a wheat grinder and the Bosch machine. I'm sure any kitchen mixer (with dough hook) could be used. This is the recipe I make all the time (and have for the past 15 years). A grinding machine does pay for itself in more ways than one. One bushel of wheat will buy about 3 to 4 loaves of bread or you could grind your own wheat and make 65-70 loaves of nutrious whole wheat bread. and the taste MMMMM

      This was the best whole wheat recipe I've tried. Thank you Dotty! Used 8 1/2 cups red hard wheat 1/2 cup white soft wheat and 1/2 cup millet. Popped it into the nutrimill and was just the right amount of flour. Used vital wheat gluten w/vitamin c in place of the bread enhancer. Not sure if they are the same thing or not. Ended up with 5 loaves of bread froze one as dough & 2 loaves for later in the week. 3/4 of a loaf was gone in one meal!
