    acerast's Note:

    Here's one that I clipped from Midwest Living many years ago. My family loves it. Estimated time includes mixing, rising, shaping and baking. A labor of love - and great therapy!

      Really good bread. I made 1 in a loaf pan and 1 in a round pan. Both baked up very nicely. It tastes just like whole wheat bread should, and it wasn't dry at all. Thank you for posting. Made for I Recommend Tag, Jan '09.

      Easy and delicious! I made 2 round loaves vs using bread pans and they were done in about 42 minutes. I did take your advice and cover with foil at 30 minutes and the loaves were gorgeous! DH circled the kitchen like a vulture until I broke down and let him cut into a warm loaf. Highly recommended :)

      I have never made bread before, so I don't have a point of reference, but this was so easy! It was a bit more dense than I expected, but the taste was perfect! I halved the recipe, but next time I won't! We ate the whole thing!
