I was looking for an easy but soft 100% whole wheat bread and found this on the internet. I thought it needed to be in recipezaar. This bread uses gluten and I have not tried it without. It is a very large loaf. You can double the recipe and make three 9x5 inch loaves or do one single large loaf. The bread comes out so soft and delicious. It is extremely easy to make with little effort. I use a mixer but there are directions for hand, mixer, or bread machine.
