It's hard to find a recipe for whole wheat bread that both is 100% whole wheat and does not require the use of a bread machine, and this recipe fits both of these requirements! This was my first time making yeast bread since 'helping' my mom as a kid, the loaves turned out great and quite yummy! Thanks for adding this recipe!
