100% Whole Wheat bread that is soft AND has a light texture! It does exist! I'd given up years ago on finding a recipe that I liked for Whole Wheat bread. It was a lot of work and mine usually, or I should say ALWAYS, looked and felt like a brick.
I usually just make homemade white bread because it tastes better. Lately, I've been wanting to find some healthy recipes since the kids eat pb&j so much.
A fellow Coastie wife shared this recipe, and it is fantastic! She said I could share it with everyone on my blog. As easy as this was to make, and inexpensive, I am going to skip buying bread all together anymore. I made two batches today using my bread machine's dough cycle. Then baked it in the oven.
I don't like bread machine bread. It tastes so much better baked in the oven, but you could just leave it in your machine the whole time.

3 T. butter, cut into small pieces
