This is the bread recipe that I recently got from my mom. She's submitted it to the church cookbooks over the years and it's always well received. :) Prep time includes rising.

I really enjoyed this bread. I got three loaves from this recipe. It's not a heavy bread, which is great. I only had about l cup of whole wheat flour, so I used it and the balance in white flour. Next time I will try it with the 4 cups of ww flour. Its a keeper.

I haven't even attmpted making yeast bread in many years because it never turned out right. Recently had a friend's homemade bread, and it spurred me on to try again. Turns out I couldn't have picked a better recipe for my first attempt! It required very little kneading and it rose without any problem. The two loaves were quite large, so like the other poster I may make it into three instead. This is FABULOUS and the flavor and texture were perfect - beyond my expectations!! Thanks for posting!!
