I bake bread several times a week, my family is so spoiled that they won't eat any other kind of bread or rolls at home.

When I first starting baking bread I tried to make whole wheat and my husband protested. I found this recipe and managed to get some whole grains into him. His tastes have changed and I now make all sorts of whole grain breads but this his still his favorite.
