Whole Wheat Bread

                      Nothing beats a wonderful fresh homemade loaf of whole wheat bread.
My love for making bread comes from my great aunt, she could 
I made this recipe about two weeks ago and have to say it was a total hit.
I have tired other recipes for a wheat bread but never had any luck, this time however I have struck gold!
The wheat flour I am using is freshly ground from Hagood Mill which is local. 
When it came out of the oven I could not wait until it was cool enough to slice and top with a bit of homemade sugar free apple butter. 
Oh, it does not get any better.
Seriously, this recipe is a sure hit!
I made another loaf tonight and again a perfect.
Can't wait to to have some in the morning. *drool*

NOTES:
  • Fast, easy and wonderful loaf of bread
  • I use 2 cups of white flour - but depending on where you are you may need more or less flour.
  • I use my bread hook on my mixer to speed things along just a little.
