    This was a shocking loaf of bread! I couldn't believe how light and airy and delicious the thing was. It rose like a champ. For years I've been searching for a great loaf of 100% whole wheat bread. I didn't believe a loaf at this level was even possible. Wow! I used lard, sugar, and malt vinegar. I followed all measurements and directions exactly. When I checked my dough to make sure it was creating a smooth ball, it required a little splash of water. Sorry, I don't know how much. I had a bit at the bottom of the measuring cup and just sort of slopped a splash of that into the ABM as it kneaded. Anyway.... Yeah, this loaf also sliced beautifully. I signed up for after years of using it and the previous incarnation Recipezaar just to be able to support this outstanding recipe and its amazing results. THANK YOU, Sweet Baboo!!!! Deserves 10 stars.

    An outstanding loaf of bread!! The texture of this bread is unbelievable - light and airy, unlike any 100% WW loaf I've seen before! I used butter and honey, and chose to use the dough option on my abm and then let it rise in a normal bread pan and bake at 350 for 28 minutes. DH, who usually says things are "good", said this bread was "gorgeous" and "smelled beautiful." Not bad from a guy of few words, normally! Thanks for posting this, it's definately a keeper - can't wait to try your multigrain loaf! Made for PRMR Tag.

    This bread is so good! I use my kitchenaid mixer and oven and it comes out so light every time. I've used butter, shortening and becel oil - doesn't matter which one I use, the bread turns out great.

<p>For someone as outgoing as I am, it is astounding that I have been unable to do something as seemingly simple as filling out my home page, so consider this draft one...(or would that be daft one??)... <br /> <br />I am blessed to live an ordinary life, have family that I dearly love, get great reward from volunteer work, and have the luxury of indulging in far too much time cooking and reading about food. I am a retired nurse and have been married to a really wonderful man for 37 years. I am a happy person, and my life is very satisfying, but somehow I can't translate the essence of ME into words, as some on Zaar have done so well. <br />I particularly enjoy reading reviews, and the Q&amp;A forum for all the expert and generous advice that the members share. <br />Since joining Zaar, I rarely use my extensive cookbook library...this is one terrific site. <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
