      I really liked the flavor of this bread, and the preparation was wonderfully easy compared to many other breads I've tried. My only complaint is that the final product turned out to be a little dry - I don't know if this was because I substituted sour cream for plain yogurt and an egg for the egg substitute, but I think next time I will add a little extra oil and it will be fine. All in all, though, great recipe - thanks for sharing! :-)

      Much easier to make than regular whole wheat (no kneading or rising). It does not have the texture of regular whole wheat. More like a denser quick bread. (Cuts easier than my w.w.!) Nice, sweet flavor. I used w.w. pastry flour, 1 egg, maple syrup and mostly sour cream (I had 1/4 C of yogurt.) Fun way to make w.w!
