    spacholl's Note:

    Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity. For years the monks made and sold their special brand of whole wheat bread. In recent years it became necessary to discontinue this industry. However, the monk who for many years was the baker has developed a recipe for home owners to bake their own whole wheat bread from the 2-grain cereal now produced at the monastery

      This was my first time baking bread and I selected this recipe because of the strikingly positive reviews. I am happy to report that I now have 2 loaves of some of the best whole wheat bread I've ever tasted. Excellent, simple recipe that yields a dense yet soft, wholesome, and delectable product. A+

      I'm new to breadmaking, but I loved this. I didn't even have brown sugar, but it still turned out great. Slightly sweet, soft, not too dense, and full of a rich, wheat flavor. Everything I make from now on will have to compare to this.

      Love, love, love it! Super easy, simple, and delicious. This was my first attempt at whole wheat bread and I am very pleased with the result. The loaf was everything I could ever ask for in a whole wheat bread and the ingredient list is perfect--simple and nothing crazy (ex. potato flakes...gross). I halved the recipe to only make one loaf, because two loaves would have been excessive for my diet. But other than halving the recipe, I did not make any other modifications. I may try using honey instead of brown sugar next time, or both, I'm just a sucker for honey whole wheat bread. So thank you spacholl for sharing this!
