I love the taste of wheat bread. Okay maybe not all wheat breads, but I love the taste of a perfect wheat bread. You know one that is moist, has a touch of honey, yet great wheat flavor. I have found my favorites at the grocery store, but love a nice slice of fresh made homemade wheat bread. It is so wonderful when it is still warm with melted butter or nutella on top. Sorry, I’ve gotten into a ramble about how I love wheat bread, and forgot to tell you I’ve found the perfect easy homemade wheat bread. My mom has been working hard to perfect this recipe trying different variations until she came up with this perfect easy homemade whole 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. Throw caution to the wind and have a slice while it is still warm. Enjoy it while relaxing with your feet up for a nice mini escape. You deserve it.
