Our Favorite Wheat Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 35mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

This bread is the best bread I've ever eaten, hands down! I have a neighbor who always tells me when he does me a favor that this is what he wants as "payment"! Really good fresh from the oven along with "Aunt Gin's Vegetable Soup" Aunt Gin's Vegetable Soup (Crock Pot).

Made this for Thanksgiving. Made 2 full loaves. Was very impressed. Made great French Toast and grilled cheese sandwiches but great for the holiday left overs also :) Will make again. Not as dense as other recipes.
