I have been making my own bread for many years. However, I have never been able to duplicate a soft and fluffy loaf with mostly whole wheat flour. I can make the most fluffy bread imaginable with white flour, but the addition of wheat always produced a dense, heavy bread. This past month, I have finally found a little time to get back to baking my bread from scratch and I found this new recipe. It is absolutely the best bread recipe ever. It does use a small portion of white flour, but I am so willing to use the white flour and get such fabulous results. This recipe is best made in a Bosch mixer and makes 4 fluffy loaves. I will also link the recipe that I use for the dough enhancer. For my bread, I am grinding hard red wheat and having just as good of results as when I used hard white wheat before. I hope that if you are looking for the perfect bread recipe you will give this a try. If you don't need 4 loaves and also just want to use your bread machine, you might try the Oatmeal Honey Bread. It isn't wheat, but the wheat does add some whole grains and the taste is wonderful. I often put it in the bread machine before church or at the start of a school day for hot, fresh bread at lunch with minimal fuss.
