    Ridgely's Note:

    Lets just say that if I can make this anyone can! A delicious soft wheat bread that even my kids enjoy. I got this recipe from a food storage class that I attended. The sample that I tasted gave me hope that I can make a delicious wheat bread too. Lemon juice in the recipe gives the bread a light and fine texture and gluten provides elasticity and strength and helps to retain moisture. This is an adapted recipe by a lady by the name of Jamie Rasmussen.*If you can use wheat flour that comes from "Soft White Wheat" instead of "Hard Red Wheat" the results will be a lighter color bread and an even more tender crumb.

      This bread is very good. Very moist & a bit chewy. I sprayed my loaves w/ water & sprinkled them w/ oats, & sunflower seeds before baking. Thanks for the post.

      This is my go-to bread recipe. My family loves it and we don't buy bread anymore. Thanks!

      Given that I've now made this bread on a weekly basis for the last six months, it's about time I rate it! This is by far the tastiest and most fail-proof whole wheat bread I've ever tried. It's incredibly light and fluffy. Slight changes: I use 1.33 units for one 9x5 pan, I use 1/4 cup of vital wheat gluten, and I let it rise for 30 mins. in a bowl before I transfer it to the loaf pan, where I let it rise another 30 before baking. Thanks Ridgely!
