Recipe by Karen..

This is the most awesome wheat bread I have ever eaten. It is worth the extra effort and because this recipe makes 4 loaves, you can freeze them and have enough for awhile :) Rising time included in prep.

Top Review by Two Socks

I thought I would update my review, just in case it sells this recipe better. I have been making this bread for over a year now and is part of my best recipes collection. I have discovered that in weight, the wheat flour is 2 lb. and 4 oz. and the white flour is 1.5 lb. This makes the prep even easier. This bread has it all; perfect structure and texture, incredible flavor, beautiful crust, and versatility...it toasts up very nicely. I don't understand those who have altered their baking times and temperatures...375 for 40 minutes has worked every time for me, and the crust is supposed to be a bit on the dark side...perhaps your ovens are out of sinc? I have easily made around 200 loaves with this formula since I found it, and it is always met with appreciation and grattitude. My sister even offered to buy 8 loaves from me to give away as Christmas gifts, and she said each recipient loved it. Awesome recipe!
