I was looking for a low sugar whole wheat bread and this was GREAT! This is an excellent sandwich bread as it has a very mild taste...it will go great with PB&J or deli meats. I used skim milk with 1t vinegar and made the dough in my bread machine and then baked in 2 stoneware loaf pans @ 375 for about 25-30 minutes until the tops were a deep tan color.

Amazing! For the first time, a loaf of 100% whole wheat bread that doesn't come out like a brick! Quite the opposite actually! My wife is having a piece and going crazy about it right now. More recipes like this please!
