I have never minded eating wheat bread, but I know there are some wheat breads that taste a whole lot better than others. I have found a brand that I loved at the store. It was moist and delicious. Almost better than any other white bread, but when I’ve tried homemade wheat breads, they aren’t as yummy. My dear mom worked so hard perfecting this recipe. She kept trying different ingredients until she came up with this easy homemade whole wheat bread. Just so I can enjoy it. Now I must share this perfect recipe!
I love to have a nice piece of wheat bread topped with Nutella for breakfast or a snack. Or make a nice hearty sandwich using this sweet, moist wheat bread. The best part is it is really easy to make. When I think of bread making I think of hard work, but not with this recipe. The hardest part of this recipe is the waiting for it to raise and bake. Oh, and cool. Goodness, talk about patience.
