I've been making bread for about 30 years now and this recipe is perfect for making in a bread machine. You'll never want to eat bought bread again. It also makes perfect toast.

A good, basic light whole wheat bread. I didn't know what bread improver was so I guessed. Is it wheat gluten? Because that is what I used. Also the ratio of 2 cups white flour to 1 cup whole wheat worked well for me. Thanks for posting.
